Emergency responders in the Tama County area will be able to learn more about strengthening their cooperative efforts among public safety and private sector entities at critical infrastructure disasters in a free Department of Homeland Security (DHS)-certified course delivered by the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC).
The eight-hour performance-level course, scheduled for January 6, 2012, from 8:30 to 5 pm at Tama County Annex Building, will bring the emergency response community together to increase its collective emergency management capabilities within the context of critical infrastructure disasters.
The purpose of the course, PER 280 Emergency Response: Strengthening Cooperative Efforts Among Public Safety and Private Sector Entities, is to foster information sharing and sustainable partnerships among private- and public-sector groups and clarify private- and public-sector roles and responsibilities within the National Strategy for Homeland Security.
In addition, the course will help participants develop strategies for mitigating, preparing for, and recovering from disasters within a national framework.
