3. THIRA Training

FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI) continues to add online courses.  Some are for FEMA staff use, others are for anyone in the field of emergency management and others are intended for the general public.

One of the newest EMI offerings for anyone in emergency management is IS-2001 – Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA).   This one hour course is an introduction to THIRA and where it fits into the National Preparedness System.

As usual, going through this hour of training along with successful completion of the accompanying online test will enable you to download an EMI course completion certificate.  IS-2001 may be found at http://www.training.fema.gov/IS/ .
