In recognition of National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Blue Campaign and the DHS Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships are hosting a virtual panel to discuss the racial disparities related to human trafficking crimes, highlighting the impact on youth and vulnerable communities.
The content of this event is best suited for individuals working in faith-based and community-serving organizations, especially those serving youth and/or minority audiences. Also, those working in minority- serving higher education institutions, as well as federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial entities serving youth and/or minority audiences.
Panelists will discuss the following topics:
Our featured speakers include:
Registration for this event is required. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Please send any questions, comments, and/or feedback to: BlueCampaign@hq.dhs.gov.

Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division for a special webinar on Fire Prevention and safety.
This webinar featuring subject matter experts from the US Fire Administration and the American Red Cross will discuss how you and your family can prevent a home fire and steps you can take to increase your ability (and that of your loved ones) to survive in the event of a fire. Fire prevention is your first step in protecting yourself and loved ones at home. Knowing what to do if a life-threatening situation occurs is a very important step that helps prevent injuries and loss of life.
Who should attend? Whole Community, Parents, Students, Local, State, Federal government, Private Sector, Faith-based, Non-profit, Philanthropic entities and Emergency Managers
Preparing employees for a potential active shooter incident is an integral component of an organization’s incident response planning. Because active shooter incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly, preparing for and knowing what to do in an active shooter situation can be the difference between life and death. Every second counts.
Understanding Liability and Risk Exposure:
The webinar focuses on providing awareness training that supports the development of emergency action planning capabilities. These capabilities may better position organizations in receiving important legal liability protections from the DHS Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act of 2002. To learn more about the SAFETY Act and the types of products, services, and layered security programs that have received protections, visit www.safetyact.gov.
Who Should Participate?
DHS Resources REGISTRATION:
Products and information can be requested by contacting the Active Shooter Preparedness team at ASworkshop@cisa.dhs.gov.

Note: An email with information to connect to the webinar will be sent the day prior to the event.
The course focuses on local preparedness efforts as they relate to the national approach to critical infrastructure security and resilience. An understanding of the national approach to critical infrastructure enables critical infrastructure stakeholders to address local planning within a common framework. Informed planning is consistent with and expands on nationally accepted emergency management standards as the basis for planning across the mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the challenge of critical infrastructure security and resilience
- Summarize Federal policy and guidance for critical infrastructure security and resilience
- Discuss the risk management framework
- Describe the roles and responsibilities of various critical infrastructure partners
- Describe critical infrastructure information sharing programs
- Relate critical infrastructure programs to individual actions

The Threat Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) course prepares participants to conduct a jurisdictional THIRA and SPR. Participant activities focus on the jurisdictional process for determining the ability to respond to human-caused, natural, and technological disasters. Participants will identify threats and hazards of concern, give the threats and hazards context, examine the core capabilities, set capability targets, and apply the results.
* Identify the major components of the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) process.
* Conduct assessments to identify threats and hazards of concern.
* Construct likely risk-based scenarios based on the results of a vulnerability assessment.
* Estimate consequences for an assigned all-hazards scenario.
* Conduct post-scenario surveys to identify jurisdictional required capabilities, compare those capabilities with current capabilities to determine "shortfalls and gaps" (Gap Analysis), and create a jurisdictional strategy to reduce these "shortfalls and gaps" by completing a needs assessment.

The Critical Asset Risk Management (CARM) course compliments the Jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment course (MGT-310) by teaching participants to conduct thorough site-specific critical infrastructure risk and vulnerability assessments to enhance development of their jurisdictional Threat Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). Through a combination of classroom presentations, group discussions, and practical field application, participants learn methods to identify and prioritize risks, assess vulnerabilities, estimate consequences, and use the National Preparedness Cycle to mitigate risk. Multidisciplinary participant teams visit and assess critical infrastructure facilities selected by the host jurisdiction, identifying risks, vulnerabilities, consequences, and mitigation options specific to their assigned site. Teams then document their findings, develop an action plan, and present their results to the class.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the major components of the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment process.
2. Characterize threats and hazards of concern.
3. Identify the local jurisdictional infrastructure that could be potential targets and their unique security requirements.
4. Define vulnerabilities within the jurisdiction.
5. Estimate the potential consequences of an all-hazards incident.
6. Discuss resilience and the preparedness cycle.
7. Develop a plan for an asset specific vulnerability assessment.
8. Assess total risk to their assigned asset.

The purpose of this management level course is to extend the knowledge, skills, and abilities developed in the awareness level course (AWR-213) and to formulate considerations for the resilience of jurisdictional assets leveraging cross-sector partnerships. These considerations as part of a resilience action plan will enhance the whole community's ability to manage the risk associated with critical infrastructure protection efforts.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
* Describe the national strategy of resilience relative to the local partner role
* Describe the whole community approach relative to the National Preparedness Goal
* Identify and prioritize jurisdictional critical infrastructure assets and interdependencies across all Critical Infrastructure sectors
* Describe the purpose and components of a resilience plan
* Analyze asset and sector impact on jurisdictional resilience
* Develop options for sector-specific next steps for highest-priority sectors
* Develop a list of jurisdiction-level (regional) resilience actions
