Disaster Response

Disaster Response - 10th Grade

This is the first course in the Emergency Response concentration of the LPSC pathway and a prerequisite for EMS 1 and Fire 1.

In this course students will be introduced to the National Incident Management System and how it defines the comprehensive approach guiding the whole community - all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations (NGO), and the private sector - to work together seamlessly to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the effects of incidents.

Students will complete a series of FEMA independent study courses and submit the completion certificates as evidence of successful completion of each course.

This course may be taken simultaneously with the EMS 1 or Fire 1 courses.

The online course is perfect for those students who are not able to enroll in the face-to-face course.
