AVERY - EHOVE Career Center has announced the presentation of threat and risk assessment training from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 30 to Nov. 1.
This 24-hour course is provided by Texas Engineering and Extension Service (TEEX), a division of Texas A & M University, under contract with the United States Department of Homeland Security. The course is co-sponsored by EHOVE Career Center and the Erie County Emergency Management Agency.
This course is appropriate training for a wide variety of professionals. Elected officials like commissioners, trustees and council members will learn how to differentiate between possible risks and real threats, enabling them to lead preparedness efforts to address those events most likely to occur. Hospital managers, public health officials and business owners will be able to identify those risks that pose the greatest danger of life and property loss, leading to a well planned preparedness track that will minimize losses if disaster strikes. Firefighters, paramedics and EMTs, and police officers and deputies will find the information very useful as they strive to protect and serve the community at large, and to determine what events might actually happen under their watch.
There is no tuition for this course, and all materials are provided by TEEX. A $25 charge covers a continental breakfast and breaks each day. Payment is due at time of registration. The sign-up deadline is 4 p.m. Oct. 26. To register, call (419) 433-5333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
