The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, Monmouth County Sheriff, and the New Jersey Emergency Medical Services Task-force (NJEMSTF) will be sponsoring a delivery of a two-day training course titled, “Pediatric Disaster Response and Emergency Preparedness" (MGT-439). The training will be delivered by the Texas Engineering Extension Service, a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium.
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.
Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Service, Governmental Administrative, Law Enforcement, Health Care, Public Health, Public Safety Communications, Citizen/Community Volunteer, Security and Safety. Sixteen continuing elective units (CEUs) will be awarded to New Jersey Emergency Medical Technicians. Continuing education credit is approved by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), an accredited approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
