Brevard County Emergency Management Training

Fostering training across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions is a core principle of emergency management on every level of government: federal, state and local. Each plays a critical role in the others’ success and it is through this collective effort that local communities are served.

Federal
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) supports a variety of training courses in local communities across the United States by providing a national curriculum, classroom materials, instructors and certifications.
 
In addition to on-site instruction, the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) offers independent study courses that are self-paced and designed for people who have emergency management responsibilities and the general public through their website. All independent study courses are offered free of charge.

FEMA’s Independent Study Program offers courses that support the nine mission areas identified by the National Preparedness Goal.

  • Incident Management
  • Operational Planning
  • Disaster Logistics
  • Emergency Communications
  • Service to Disaster Victims
  • Continuity Programs
  • Public Disaster Communications
  • Integrated Preparedness
  • Hazard Mitigation

State
Much in the same way that FEMA works to support the training needs of local jurisdictions, so too does the Training Unit for the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Their central function is to coordinate the delivery of courses to the field for those in the emergency response community; primarily focused at county and municipal responders.

One of the strongest tools used to accomplish that mission is the State’s Training and Resources Activity Center or SERT TRAC. Essentially a calendar of events, SERT TRAC is a one-stop shop for responders to find upcoming training in their community, surrounding areas and across the state.

Note: The courses listed on SERT TRAC are designed for those with an emergency response role
 


Brevard County
