The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (NJOHSP) will sponsor a one-day training program titled, “Shelter Fundamentals and Management.” The program will be delivered by the American Red Cross.
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
This Shelter Fundamentals and Management training, normally two courses, will be presented as one integrated six hour instructor-led delivery. The Fundamentals portion is a basic level course that introduces the guidelines and procedures for setting up, running, and closing a shelter during a disaster. Participants will work on case studies of the phases of the Sheltering Cycle: Opening, Organizing, Operating, and Closing. The Shelter Management portion introduces the roles, responsibilities, and tasks of the shelter manager.
This course is for emergency management, first responders and volunteers who may serve at a disaster emergency shelter.
