Free Emergency Response Training from the Center for Domestic Preparedness for State Emergency Responders

The Department of Homeland Security Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), located in Anniston, Alabama, has just released their FY 2012 training calendar.  Municipal drinking water and wastewater utility personnel and state program staff engaged in drinking water emergency response are eligible to attend this training at no cost.  CDP training helps communities prepare for real world emergencies and includes broad emergency preparedness as well as discipline-specific training courses.  Drinking water personnel would find the public works track most useful.  Additional information can be found below.

 State drinking water program staff who wish to participate will have to register via their State Training POC (who most likely resides in the Homeland Security Office).  The application process is outlined at http://cdp.dhs.gov/registration/index.html

Additional information on dates and program focus areas are available at:  http://cdp.dhs.gov/schedules/program_list.html and http://cdp.dhs.gov/recommend/index.html.
