Description

This course will provide medium- to high-level decision makers with comprehensive planning tools to mitigate impacts on communities during large-scale incidents. This course examines the need for collaboration among responders in a community-wide disaster response. The NCBRT will deliver training through a combination of facilitated discussion, hands-on training, and traditional classroom-style instruction.
