MGT 417: Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents for Key Decision Makers
MGT 417 is a tuition free, management-level, DHS/FEMA-certified course that
provides operational-level details to support many of the topics covered in
AWR148: Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents – Partnering Rural
Law Enforcement, First Responders, and Local School Systems. Rural
schools, law enforcement, other emergency responders, and community
stakeholders are often limited in their access to resources, so it is imperative
that all potentially affected parties collaborate in planning, preparation,
communication, response, and recovery in the event of a school-based
incident. Moreover, these affected parties must come together to practice their
interoperable skills through drills and exercises to ensure the strategies in
place provide for effective crisis response and collaborative recovery. With
the intent of building upon the foundation of AWR148 and utilizing an all-hazards approach, this two-day course will provide content instruction, develop
concept-specific skills, and provide opportunities for law enforcement, school
personnel, and community stakeholders to collaboratively apply the course
objectives in scenario-based applications.
Topics include (but not limited to):
• All-Hazards Planning and Preparedness
• Vulnerability Assessments
• Threat Assessment Management
• All-Hazards Response
• All-Hazards Recovery
• Scenario-Based Activities
Who Should Attend:
• All First Responders—especially Law Enforcement

Landfill Gas Pipeline Awareness Training
Please join us for a presentation from Douglas Pipeline Company.
Douglas Pipeline operates the EDL Honey Brook, Landfill Pipeline. It starts at the Lanchester Landfill and terminates at Dart Container in Leola. This awareness training is targeting the first response agencies along that route. The landfill gas is flammable, but it also has hydrogen sulfide in it, which is a health hazard.
Douglas Pipeline staff will go over some recent changes to their operations and answer any questions first response agencies may have in regards to dealing with this gas.
MGT-310: Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment / Stakeholder Preparedness Review
This course introduces the six-step THIRA/SPR process which includes identifying threats and hazards that stress a communitys capabilities, giving context to those threats and hazards and identifying associated impacts consistent with specific factors, identifying community-specific capability targets, assessing current levels of capability in comparison to those targets, identifying capability gaps and subsequent strategies to close those gaps.
Successful completion of the course will assist local emergency responders and stakeholders in generating actionable preparedness data that communities can use to support a variety of emergency management efforts, including planning, training, exercises, and incident response and recovery. THIRA/SPR-informed planning is consistent with and expands on nationally accepted emergency management standards as the basis for planning across the mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.
Individuals completing this course in combination with MGT315, MGT414, and AWR213, are awarded the TEEX Infrastructure Protection Certificate.
