Title: Winter Weather Hazards: Science and Preparedness (AWR-331), Organization: National Disaster Preparedness Training Center, Date: October 31, 2017, Location: Albuquerque, New Mexico, Fee: Free
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (US/Mountain), Instructor(s): Robert Goldhammer, James Henderson
Description: This is a eight-hour awareness-level course to provide emergency managers, first responders, and community members across all sectors with a basic understanding of the latest knowledge in winter weather science, forecasting, warning, and preparedness.
This course will prepare participants to understand the basics of winter weather science, the winter weather forecasting process, how winter weather forecasts are communicated, and the fundamentals of winter weather safety and preparedness. Since winter storms can strike every state in the United States, it is important that every community be ready for the hazards associated with them. This awareness-level course will fulfill the goals of the “whole community” approach to emergency management by reaching a broad sector of the community. Multiple core capabilities will be addressed, with particular emphasis on “public information and warning” and “threats and hazard identification.” Participants who represent sectors such as mass care services, health and social services, operational communications, critical transportation, and planning would further expand the discussions in this course to other corresponding core capabilities.
Target Audience: The target audience for this awareness-level course includes participants across a broad spectrum of the community who need to be aware of the threat of winter weather. In particular, this should be of interest to emergency managers, first responders, small businesses, corporations, federal/state/tribal governments, NGOs, community organizations, and typical households who need to prepare and respond to hazards associated with winter storms.
