All Hazards Community Partnership Training
The course has been designed to show how to create a collaborative partnership between community members and public safety personnel who wish to better prepare for an all-hazards event and who are interested in forming collaborative partnerships that strengthen the ability of their community to respond to a disaster.
The course concentrates on preparation beginning at the family level, then moves to mobilization of communities, partnership building, and establishment of goal-oriented coalitions. Course modules cover topics that include awareness, preparation, prevention, response, and recovery. Once formed, these community partnerships will enable communities to identify possible targets, assess the level of threat to those targets and determine the resources required to effectively neutralize or minimize an attack, identify where to find those resources, manage an initial citizen response, and develop quick-reference guides for their community.
Emphasis is placed upon incorporation of existing programs (e.g. Neighborhood Watch, Citizen Corps etc.) into the overall community plan. Participants will receive training in all-hazards, terrorism and WMD, emergency management, community partnerships, and community action planning. The course will includes an unfolding desktop exercise specifically designed for the host community.
