add to outlook calendar

This class will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb 20-22, 2013 at the Air National Gaurd and Fire Department in Fargo, ND. The Responder course draws from an Awareness level of knowledge the student has on the basics of radiation, possible health effects and hazard identification. The training focuses on basic radiological detection, survey instruments, risk-based response, crime-scene preservation, personal protective equipment (PPE), and radiological incidents. The course consists of both classroom instruction and scenario-driven, hands-on, performance-oriented practical exercises with actual radiological sources. Although every participant will be issued a radiation survey meter, participants are encouraged to bring their own from their home department or jurisdiction.

Target audience is emergency responders, including law enforcement agencies, fire departments, hazardous materials technicians, bomb squads, SWAT, public health services, emergency medical service personnel, or other emergency management personnel.

This course has been approved by the ND POST Board for 21 credits.
