A Prepared Jurisdiction: Integrated Response to a CBRNE Incident (PER-219)

This course is designed to improve interagency collaboration during a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive (CBRNE) incident. Disciplines within a community must be able to recognize their roles and the roles of other first responder disciplines when preparing for and responding to disasters. The course examines integration and command structure within a jurisdiction.

Using a whole community approach, the course provides an opportunity for a jurisdiction to examine its overall preparedness capability. This goal is accomplished through interactive discussions between functional groups, collaborative planning, and participation in a day-long field training scenario, which presents participants with an incident that significantly challenges existing resources throughout their jurisdiction.
