Please join us for this informative seminar designed specifically for EMS and hospital personnel.

After the devastation caused locally by Superstorm Sandy, it's easy to determine our strengths and what needs to be done differently should we be faced with another natural disaster. Learn more about disaster preparedness for emergency and healthcare personnel from a representative from Texas A&M's Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), a leader in training emergency personnel for response to natural disasters and other emergencies.

Protecting the critical infrastructure of the United States is essential to the nation’s security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and way of life. Hospitals and healthcare organizations are part of the critical infrastructure as identified in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). This course brings together those individuals from the hospital and healthcare community who are responsible for ensuring the resiliency of healthcare services during a high-consequence or catastrophic event within a jurisdiction. Focusing on preparedness processes and activities, this course provides hospital and healthcare personnel an opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to help them ensure the sustainability of their facilities and organizations during all types of disasters. 

This class qualifies for 14 EMT CEUs.
