10. FEMA IS-2000, 2500, 2600 and 2700 Courses

Greetings once again from Clark County, currently celebrating one consecutive day without a tornado! 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency‘s Emergency Management Institute Independent Study program has been extra busy cranking out new free online courses. 

IS-2000 covers the National Preparedness Goal and System Overview, IS-2500 covers the National Prevention Framework, IS-2600 covers the National Protection Framework and IS-2700 covers the National Mitigation Framework.  ARES members are not obligated to complete any of these courses, but if you are interested in emergency management taking these can really aid in understanding the overall picture. 

To start any one or more of these FEMA online courses, go to https://training.fema.gov/is/
