Registration Now Open for IPS-hosted Department of Homeland Security Campus Emergencies Prevention Course

On Jan. 26 and 27, 2016, the Institute of Public Safety (IPS) will host the Campus Emergencies Prevention, Response and Recovery course, a two-day Department of Homeland Security certified class offered by the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training.

The course provides participants with an understanding of, and ability to, navigate through the difficult aspects of dealing with campus emergencies involving natural or human-caused events, including acts of violence. The course consists of small, problem-based, integrated group activities that require a coordinated, integrated approach to solve. Through tabletop scenarios, course participants will observe a developing incident and respond in a manner consistent with currently established campus and jurisdictional emergency operations procedures.

IPS welcomes representatives from the following SF areas: Law Enforcement and Public Safety Agencies; Executive Campus Leaders; Faculty/Student Governance; Campus Public Safety Departments; Facilities; Student Life/Affairs; Campus Health/Medical and Mental Health Services; Campus Public Affairs; and Public Information Officers at community colleges, colleges and universities. The target audience also includes Emergency Medical Services, Fire Services, Government Administration, Hazardous Materials Personnel, Healthcare, Law Enforcement, Public Heath, Public Safety Communications and Public Works.

Please note, seating is limited to 25 SF participants. All participants are required to be U.S. Citizens and have a FEMA SID prior to enrolling in the training.
