Ep #35 All Hazards Disaster Response – @NAEMT_ Beta Course #AHDR

All Disasters are Local.  First responders, regardless of the type of incident, need to be prepared to respond to mass casualty events and disasters of varying types with changing conditions and hazards.  While the FEMA Incident Command Courses offer a primer on organizational structure of a response as well as insight into general operations at events, there is no course specifically aimed at prehospital providers which simultaneously codifies the medical knowledge required to care for critically ill and injured patients at a multitude of events.  More so, this course targets boots on the ground providers from EMTs, Paramedics as well as EMS Response & Rescue physicians and provides the necessary skills, knowledge and insight to integrate seamlessly within the overarching ICS framework from the bottom up.  This course focuses on the initial response to a wide range of possible events and is designed to scale perfectly to your operational area with topics including Structural Fires, Radiologic Events, Natural Disasters and critical Infrastructure Failure, Transportation events, Infectious Disease Outbreaks and of course Active Shooter Events.  There are a bevy of well honed exercised, drills and tabletops to keep the pace of the 8hr day brisk and engaging.

It was a sincere pleasure to lead a distinguished group of authors in developing this new course which we Beta’d for the very first time in New Orleans at #EMSWorldExpo16.  The official debut will be at @EMSTODAY conference in Salt Lake City Utah as a preconference on February 22nd 2017.  Hope to see you all there!

We hope to add the #AHDR course to the suite of Prehospital Trauma courses including PHTLS, TCCC & TECC and encourage all instructors for this course to keep an eye out for the online training module which will allow you to become an instructor for AHDR!
