Upcoming Event: Healthcare Sector Preparedness Course, April 3rd / 4th

The FEMA Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response’s Division of National Healthcare Preparedness Programs has developed a one-day, 8 hour Health Sector Emergency Preparedness Course. The course is designed to provide training to health care providers and suppliers in the achievement of the four core elements outlined in the September 2016 Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers Final Rule. The CDP will provide this training in coordination with interested Health Care Coalitions (HCCs).

Targeted for health care providers and suppliers, this training will discuss the below critical skill sets:  

  1. Understand specific healthcare provider and supplier emergency preparedness requirements as outlined in the CMS Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers Rule.
  2. Develop knowledge and skill in achieving relevant emergency preparedness elements for your healthcare provider or supplier type. Recognize by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), to include the advantages and disadvantages of each level

This 8 hour course requires registration, and will be offered on two different days. Please note space is limited to 150 participants per day.  Do not delay in signing up if you have a need or interest. We try to think of this as a train-the-trainer opportunity, so feel free to take notes and bring this vital information back to your organization.

Access to building/Check-In

Parking can be a distance from the building so please plan accordingly. We do encourage carpooling as space is limited. There are handicapped spaces available but this is an active building so parking fills up quickly. If you cannot find parking in the front, please pull around back as there is additional parking there. Lunch will be held on a different floor and can be accessed either by stairs or elevator.  As mentioned above, picture ID will be required as this is a secure building and access in and out is restricted.  You will need to check-in at the registration table upon arrival in order to check-in and receive a name badge for the workshop.  This desk will be in the main lobby, on the right hand side on both days. Please note if you need to seek re-entry, staff will need to let you back into the auditorium. Please dress in layers as we do not have temperature control access.
