Fire - Non Traditional Courses - Advances Search & Rescue The Advance Search and Rescue course is designed to provide firefighters with increased skills in one of the most dangerous operations. Searching a building for a victim in the initial stages of fire suppression operations while heat, fire and smoke is rapidly escalating is very dangerous for the firefighters. Many times this tactical operation is undertaken with minimal water application due to the need to rapidly search an entire building in less than 5 minutes. Our priorities at the fire scene are protection of life, fire containment, and property protection, in that order.

Fire - Non Traditional Courses - Courage to Be Safe This provocative and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence.
Firefighters must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so that others can be saved. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks and tragic consequences. This provocative and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence. Building on the untold story of LODD survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a firefighter death and provides a focus on the need for firefighters and officers to change fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths. The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other firefighters and ensure that "Everyone Goes Home" at the end of the day.

Managing Food Emergencies: Strategies for a Community Response (MGT 447) Managing Food Emergencies: Strategies for a Community Response is a management-level course that teaches participants how to manage food emergencies using the emergency operations center (EOC), Incident Command System (ICS) principles, and best management practices.

Participants will manage a fictional food emergency using the guidelines and strategies of the Incident and Unified Command systems. The scenario will advance with every module, beginning with Module 2, from the point that a foodborne outbreak is detected. The scenario will progress throughout the modules from surveillance and into the transition to recovery. In Module 7, participants will engage in an after-action discussion to assess their current preparedness for a food emergency and the value of using ICS principles and practices, and adding Emergency Management as a food emergency response partner.

Objectives
Describe how using the NIMS, the ICS, EOCs, and a whole-community approach can improve food emergency responses.
Examine credible surveillance systems and the triggers they produce to enhance their preparedness for and response to food emergencies.
Develop appropriate response action plans to mitigate the effects of a food emergency.
Develop communication and coordination strategies to minimize the effects of a food emergency.
Manage the transition of resources from a food emergency response environment to strategies and activities essential for recovery from a food emergency.
Evaluate the effectiveness of a food emergency response by determining strengths and weaknesses and by defining tangible steps to take to improve future food emergency responses.
Managing Food Emergencies: Strategies for a Community Response is a management-level course that teaches participants how to manage food emergencies using the emergency operations center (EOC), Incident Command System (ICS) principles, and best management practices.

Participants will manage a fictional food emergency using the guidelines and strategies of the Incident and Unified Command systems. The scenario will advance with every module, beginning with Module 2, from the point that a foodborne outbreak is detected. The scenario will progress throughout the modules from surveillance and into the transition to recovery. In Module 7, participants will engage in an after-action discussion to assess their current preparedness for a food emergency and the value of using ICS principles and practices, and adding Emergency Management as a food emergency response partner.

Rail Car Incident Response (AWR-147) The Rail Car Incident Response course has been developed to educate emergency responders on freight rail car incidents involving hazardous materials. As more and more rail traffic transports cargo, including hazardous materials, it is critical that emergency responders are well trained. The increase in traffic adds to the already present risk of transportation incidents involving hazardous cargo. In addition, since a majority of the rail traffic travels through rural America, it is important that the often times resource limited rural responder community become educated about the dangers and unique hazards presented with rail cars. The information covered in this course will enhance the ability of emergency responders, especially rural emergency responders, to manage rail car incidents.
