ERT: Basic Concepts


This course is designed to prepare first responder personnel to take the appropriate course of action at the scene of a potential terrorist incident. The course will provide students with a general understanding and recognition of terrorism, defensive considerations (biological, nuclear, incendiary, chemical, and explosive), as well as command and control issues associated with criminal incidents. When an incident occurs, the student will be able to recognize and implement self protective measures, secure the scene, complete appropriate notifications to local, state and federal authorities, and assist in completing a smooth transition form emergency to recovery and termination operations.
