The Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), will be instructing the two-day course, "Pediatric Disaster Response and Emergency Preparedness" (MGT-439).
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
This course prepares students to effectively, appropriately, and safely plan for and respond to a disaster incident involving children, addressing the specific needs of pediatric patients in the event of a community based-incident. Pediatric specific planning considerations include mass sheltering, pediatric-triage, reunification planning and pediatric decontamination considerations. This is not a hand-on technical course, but instead a management resource course for stakeholders.
