APS Elective Course
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course using a combination of lectures, discussions, activities, and exercises, the course will take participants through the complete process from well before the flood to clean-up afterwards. Officials from every community at risk of flooding should take this training While this training emphasizes how to conduct a flood fight, it provides information to help communities decide if a flood fight is possible and worth the effort and cost. Diagrams with materials lists and equipment and labor requirements to construct various types of temporary flood protection can be used to help determine if there is enough time and resources to protect the community. If the whole community cannot be protected, then officials must decide where to concentrate their efforts to protect some areas and/or evacuate and relocate what they can. If a flood fight is undertaken, it should be done the right way or the effort will be wasted. Instructors should be experienced in flood fighting

McKinley County Emergency Services - EOC

Gallup, NM 87301
Developed by the University of Findlay as a member of the RDPC, this Awareness level course has been developed to educate rural law enforcement personnel as well as school administrators and personnel on the elements that must be in place to effectively respond to a school-based emergency. Rural schools, law enforcement, and other emergency responders are often limited in resources, so it is imperative that all potentially affected parties collaborate on planning, preparing, communicating, responding, and recovering from a school-based incident. This course provides an opportunity to partner the rural emergency response community and the local school systems. Specifically, this course will allow them to collaborate, communicate, and share information, to achieve coordinated awareness of, prevention of, protection against, and response to school-based incidents in a rural community.
