This FEMA course was designed to be delivered to teams of campus personnel who are responsible for creating, reviewing, implementing and exercising emergency operations plans. The target audience for this course is people who have traditional response or strategic experience, but minimal experience in emergency management planning. The three-day course is primarily interactive presentations and class exercises coupled with numerous individual and small-group practice activities. This course trains teams of 6-8 people from each campus, who can take those skills and knowledge back to their own campuses to facilitate the emergency planning process. The make/up of the team is decided by each campus and should be selected from these positions (one person per position): Community first responders (Fire, EMS); City/County OES; Campus security or law enforcement; Campus Emergency Management; Campus Administration; Risk Management; PIO/Communication; Facilities Management; Student Affairs (health, housing, dining, etc); Employee/Occupational Health; Counseling (students and/or staff); Faculty and/or Students; Information Technology.
