FEMA courses in domestic preparedness available for eligible responders

The following message is from Tom Tidwell, Resident Training, East Region Training Coordinator, Center for Domestic Preparedness

The Center for Domestic Preparedness is a member of the Department of Homeland Security, National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, and offers fully funded training for eligible responder disciplines. The attached training schedule has hyperlinks embedded in the “Program Letters” for easy access to the full course information.  If you have any question please don’t hesitate to call or drop me an email.  Please visit our website to learn more about the training we offer.

“If you are a state or local emergency responder, this training is completely funded by DHS at no cost to you or your jurisdiction. We fly you into Atlanta airport, pick you up, transport you to the CDP, and provide all meals and lodging.”

The CDP has officially launched its new Facebook site at www.facebook.com/cdpfema  we are also on twitter https://twitter.com/cdpfema.

            For personnel assigned as Department Chiefs, Operations, Superintendents, Training Officers, or Department Point of Contacts, with the responsibility and authority to schedule personnel for training I can use the “Holding Seat” process to reserve seats for you.  You will need to contact me directly and provide the name, phone number and department of the personnel you are requesting a seat for and if available I will make the reservation.  Applications are still required to be processed through the State SAA’s office for approval however; using this system you will know seats are available for you.
