Whether you are a civilian or a first responder, emergency preparedness is crucial. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) found the two main barriers to emergency preparedness for civilians are the perceived costs of preparing (26%) and not knowing how (24%).
However, for users of TargetSolutions' online training management system, disaster preparation is simplified. FEMA courses can be accessed instantly through the computer-based platform.
TargetSolutions offers the required, introductory courses for Incident Command System (ISC) and National Incident Management System (NIMS). It also provides a variety of other FEMA courses for more in-depth emergency response training. These 10 courses range from incident management overview to public communication and resource management.
While TargetSolutions’ pre-built courses offer simplicity, a platform manager can customize content to fit their organization's needs. When a natural disaster strikes a region, impacted agencies can emphasize procedures specific to their environment. While natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados, and earthquakes vary across the country, types of emergencies also vary depending on urban or rural settings.
“Cities and municipalities must be ready for when disasters strike to ensure public safety. Anyone potentially involved in emergency management should take the FEMA courses – which is essentially everyone.”
Amy Albanese, Account Manager, TargetSolutions
As with all TargetSolutions courses, administrators can track training and generate reports for course completions, so all users are trained efficiently. Training hours for in person NIMS training can also be documented using TargetSolutions. Learners attending hands-on emergency training can simply upload their certifications for credit.
It’s impossible to predict when emergencies will happen; however, it’s everyone’s responsibility to be prepared for when they do. TargetSolutions makes it easy to deliver pre-built FEMA courses or customize training for an organization's needs. The ability to deliver, track, and report FEMA training through TargetSolutions helps users ensure personal and public safety.
