The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness will be sponsoring two deliveries of a two-day training course titled, “Disaster Preparedness for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations within the Community Infrastructure” (MGT-341). The Texas Engineering Extension Service, a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, will deliver the training.
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
The Disaster Preparedness for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations within the Community Infrastructure course provides information specific to hospitals and organizations vulnerability to a disaster. During this course, participants will be introduced to the various natural, technological, and civil hazards to which hospitals and healthcare organizations may be vulnerable and the potential impacts of those hazards. Federal guidelines and legislation that serve to aid in the preparedness for, and response to, incidents involving these hazards are discussed, as are current emergency management standards for the hospital community.
This course is for participants interested in obtaining the TEEX Infrastructure Disaster Management Certificate. The certificate is for professionals who wish to enrich their personal knowledge and skills related to critical infrastructure disaster management. Participants can request to receive a Series Certificate once all four courses (MGT-317, MGT-341, MGT-345, and MGT-343) are completed.
