This planning and management-level course trains FBCO representatives, management-level emergency managers, and first responders from rural and small communities to strategically mobilize and engage members of faith-based community organizations, including religious charities, nonprofits such as the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross, churches (both affiliated and unaffiliated), temples, synagogues, mosques, and NGOs etc., in a reciprocal approach to disaster planning that is integrated into current local and statewide emergency management efforts.
This course emphasizes grassroots mobilization and coordination efforts as a means of engaging all faith communities, thereby reaching those marginalized communities most vulnerable to disaster, most frequently excluded from the planning process, and ultimately, most difficult to aid in recovery. This course introduces vital emergency management concepts to FBCO leaders, many of whom will have had no prior experience with emergency management and also seeks to educate emergency managers and first responders about the critical role FBCO's can play in strengthening preparedness. Prerequisites: Completion of the IS100 Introduction to the Incident Command System (ICS).
