Incident Action Plan (IAP) Training (Video Teleconference)
This course will provide an overview of the Incident Action Planning process. The Incident Command System (ICS) emphasizes systematic and orderly planning in response to mitigating emergencies, and the Incident Action Plan is the central tool for planning during response to such incidents. This fluid planning deliverable is written and implemented at the outset of the response and revised throughout the duration of the incident. This program will provide guidance on how to develop, write and implement a solid incident action plan.
Response Doctrine and Incident Management Training (NRF/NIMS) Webinar

New Madrid Seismic Zone Overview
This seminar will provide a general overview of the background, history and threats associated with the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ). In addition to providing details about the fault line and its catastrophic potential, this course will provide a summary of the guiding principles for responding to and recovery from a large-scale event along the NMSZ. These principles will assist in defining actions to be taken and stress the importance of a coordinated strategy for a rapid response for the delivery of critical resources in the event of a no-notice earthquake occurring within the NMSZ. This is for state agency officials with management responsibility for catastrophic disaster response to a New Madrid Seismic event, state and local government emergency managers, city and county administrators, community planners, and others with similar responsibilities.
New Madrid Seismic Zone Earthquake Effects
As a preparatory step for the upcoming national earthquake exercise in May of 2011, SEMA is offering an informative seminar for leadership. This seminar will provide reinforcement that the loss of life and destruction in recent moderate earthquakes emphasize the need for those living along the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) to be better prepared for an earthquake of similar size. This program will provide an overview of the Central United States Earthquake Consortium’s (CUSEC) research in the devastating potential for a destructive earthquake along the Mississippi Valley and highlight what some of the effects from future quakes may be.
Individual Assistance (Webinar)
This webinar will focus on FEMA’s role in providing assistance to individuals and households affected by a presidentially declared disaster.
