New Training Announcement: Threat and Risk Assessment: Local Jurisdiction (MGT 310)


May 2, 2012


Threat and Risk Assessment: Local Jurisdiction (MGT 310)

June 13-14, 2012

This course prepares emergency response managers, community leaders, private sector, non-governmental organizations, and tribal leaders to conduct a comprehensive, capabilities-based threat and risk assessment for terrorism/all-hazards incidents under the National Response Framework (NRF), National Preparedness Guidelines and Homeland Security Presidential Directives. Participant activities focus on the jurisdictional process for determining the ability to respond to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) and natural disaster events. Participants will identify shortfalls, perform gap analysis, and develop a needs assessment to fill shortfalls/gaps identified within the preparedness cycle. The course delivery combines lecture, small group discussions, participant activities, and multimedia scenarios to improve the multi-disciplinary emergency response teams’ capability to prevent, protect, respond to, or recover from all-hazards events. Subject matter experts from the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center will conduct the program.


Participants should work in one of the listed disciplines, have completed a WMD/terrorism awareness level course, or be approved by the local jurisdiction host. Completion of the online courses IS-700.a (NIMS – An Introduction) and AWR-160 (WMD/Terrorism Awareness for Emergency Responders) is recommended but not required. The DHS/FEMA NTED course AWR-160 is offered online by TEEX.
