Emergency Response to Terrorism - Basic Concepts

Wisconsin Emergency Management and the Wisconsin Technical College System are offering the National Fire Academy developed course entitled "Emergency Response to Terrorism - Basic Concepts" throughout the state.  Contact your County Emergency Management Director for course information and applications.

This 2-day course is designed to prepare first response personnel to take the appropriate course of action at the scene of a potential terrorist incident. The course will provide students with a general understanding and recognition of terrorism, defensive considerations such as biological, nuclear, incendiary, chemical, and explosive (B-NICE), as well as command and control issues associated with criminal incidents. When an incident occurs, the students will be able to recognize and implement self-protective measures; secure the scene; complete appropriate notifications to local, State and Federal authorities; and assist in completing a smooth transition from emergency to recovery and termination operations.

Representatives from the emergency medical service community are encouraged to attend. Class size is limited to 30 and registration is on a first-come, first served basis.

These "Emergency Response to Terrorism- Basic Concepts" courses are scheduled for statewide recruitment. The course may also be available in your community by request. For more information contact your County Emergency Management Director.
