Training Announcement: Community Mass Care and Emergency Assistance (G108)

 

March 3, 2014

 

The Community Mass Care and Emergency Assistance course (FEMA Course G108) will be offered May 28th and 29th, 2014 at Jeff's Catering in Brewer.

Course Description

This course is designed to provide training for local communities to prepare for and manage this function effectively. The goal is to prepare community agencies, organizations, and businesses to work together to provide Mass Care and Emergency Assistance services to those affected by disaster.

The purpose of this course is to develop foundational knowledge of Mass Care and Emergency Assistance services in the community. It is not a “how to” for sheltering. Participants will use this information to build Community Emergency Action Items and to identify gaps in the community’s program.

At the conclusion of the course, the participants will be able to:

  1. Define the four primary Mass Care and Emergency Assistance services as discussed in this course.
  2. Describe how to determine their community’s Mass Care and Emergency Assistance service resource requirements.
  3. Identify providers that exist in their community or can be called upon from a nearby community to meet the requirements for Mass Care and Emergency Assistance.
  4. Name planning and operational actions that can affect how services will be provided.
  5. List Action Items to utilize resources and providers to meet Mass Care and Emergency Assistance requirements in their community.

This course is intended for community agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO), and private sector organizations that will collaborate to provide the Mass Care and Emergency Assistance.

Course Location and Logistics:

The course will be held at Jeff’s Catering, 15 Littlefield Way in Brewer, Maine (see map). Classes will run from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. Lunch and breaks will be provided.
