FEMA MGT-405 course

I often travel to Columbus, Ohio or farther for Emergency Management training courses.  While most training costs are covered by Federal and/or state grants, I sometimes have to stay overnight at my own expense.  But on rare occasions a training opportunity comes to ARES District 3.  That will be the case on Saturday, September 24th.

On that date, FEMA’s Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) will offer their management level MGT-405 course, Mobilizing Faith-Based Community Organizations in Preparing for Disaster, at Wilberforce University just east of Xenia, Ohio.

This eight hour class is intended to bring faith-based organizations, emergency managers, non-governmental organizations, etc. to the disaster planning table.  District ARES members might attend (with permission) representing their religious affiliation, their local emergency management agency or their first responder organization.

Registration closes on September 10th, but may end earlier if the class fills first.  If you are interested is this, or any, RDPC offering, go to http://www.ruraltraining.org/ .
