    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.

    Objectives:

    • Discuss the elements of active shooter incident response planning with guidance from expert instructors.
    • Describe common behaviors, conditions, and situations associated with active shooter events.
    • Discuss how to recognize potential workplace violence indicators.
    • Provide information about best practices, communications protocols, and resources that will assist stakeholders to develop or enhance their emergency planning, preparedness, and response to active shooter incidents.

    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?

    • Private and public organizations
    • Corporate and facility security professionals
    • Supervisory first responders
    • Human resource managers
    • Community response officials
    • Health organizations
    • Faith-based leaders
    • School administrators and security officers

    Description

    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.


    Objectives

    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

    Target Audience

    Citizen/Community Volunteer, Emergency Management, Governmental Administrative, Information Technology, Other, Private Sector / Corporate Security and Safety Professionals, Public Works, Transportation Security

    Description

    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.


    Objectives

    At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

    * 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.

    Target Audience

    Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Service, Healthcare, Hazardous Materials, Law Enforcement, Other, Public Health, Public Safety Communications, Public Works

    Description

    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.


    Objectives

    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.


    Target Audience
