ISC was selected to deliver POD training to stakeholders, partnering organizations and volunteers of the fourth largest county in the United States. This in-person training covers the process of mass dispensing and distribution under a State of Emergency and/or Public Health Emergency and in accordance with county-specific guidelines.
The ISC team knows that emergency preparedness must come on all levels; national, state, local, and individual. Recently, ISC brought Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training to the residents of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Over a series of three-day courses, community residents and leaders learned basic first aid, how first responders organize themselves, light search and rescue (LSAR), and more! Are you a Miami-Dade resident who is interested in future CERT trainings? Let us know!
Unfortunately, there has been a growing trend of active shooter incidents across the country. This trend has generated a growing need for emergency personnel, officials, students, and employees to know what to do when crisis occurs. ISC is using its ODYSSEUS’ TEAM and IES technologies to deliver computer-based training and computer simulated scenario to test, train, and exercise active shooter tactical operations and decision-making processes.
In conjunction with the development of the 2013 Bi-State Kansas City Regional Coordination Guide (RCG), ISC developed customized interactive course using ISC’S ODYSSEUS | TEAM TECHNOLOGIES to assist the region in training its staff and partners on the key concepts operational elements associated with the strategic plan. This training also included a tornado scenario where participants can apply their knowledge of the RCG.
The RCG is an all-hazard, capabilities-based guide designed to address any of the hazards potentially affecting the Kansas City metro-area. The RCG is for use by all local governments, as well as Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to ensure a series of formal actions are in place to facilitate communication and cooperation between the many agencies and organizations in the region potentially involved in emergency events.
