The course provides learners with a basic understanding of NIMS concepts, principles, and components. 3h

Pandemic Planning – The Planning Organization A pandemic causes more people to look to the government for help. The wider the pandemic spreads, the more stress and strain that will be put on the government’s resources, particularly in terms of manpower. What citizens of your community must also realize is that government, regardless of the level, cannot deal with a pandemic alone. Local government needs to plan, and part of the planning efforts will involve interaction, not just with the more obvious participants such as healthcare professionals, but also business, industry, community organizations, church groups and the public in general. 1h
Pandemic Planning – Elements of the Plan Creating an effective pandemic plan means preparing for every conceivable contingency. You don’t beat a pandemic; you contain it, and how well you contain it will be directly related to how well you prepare. In this course, you will learn how the five components of the overall pandemic plan fit together to form a cohesive unit and some of the key contingencies that will need to be addressed in each of these areas. Additionally, you will learn the importance of communication and cooperation, both internally among departments within the local government, as well as with organizations within the community. 1h
Protecting Transportation Systems This course will focus on preparing officers to protect against assaults on public surface transportation systems from terrorism. This includes crowded train stations, bus depots, carriages, or coaches. It will also explain how protective measures align with the color-coded threat conditions used in the DHS Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). 1h
