Emergency Preparedness Training Resources

Preparedness Training Resources

The Health Security, Preparedness and Response Program often partners with contractors to provide Incident Command System (ICS) trainings. HSPR is also able to deliver some health preparedness and response trainings directly, through contractors or in collaboration with partners. When these become available, information will be posted on the training calendar. These trainings are intended for personnel who work in public health or health care emergency preparedness, emergency management, first responders, or on an incident management team (IMT).
