  • 02/23/2011
  • 8:30 AM - 3:59 PM
  • The Security Institute, 4647 Stone Ave., Sioux City

The goal of the course is to demonstrate how an effective frontline emergency response can reduce or mitigate the effects of an agricultural emergency, an act of agroterrorism or other food systems disaster. In so doing, frontline agricultural and public safety response teams including personnel from the county, regional, state and federal agencies will be provided with a comprehensive program formed around the principles of the Incident Command (ICS) and the concept of Unified Command. This course includes a plan that can be used as an "all hazards" approach against a wide variety of potential problems and occurrences within the agricultural community. Individuals who complete this course will be motivated to form and maintain appropriate community frontline response teams.

Content will include:

  • Fundamental elements needed to respond to an agroterrorism disaster in a community.
  • Core competencies needed in a community agroterrorism/disaster response team.
  • Gain insight to the communities' vulnerabilities and plan strategies for prevention, response and recovery.
  • Strategies for building and sustaining a community agroterrorism/disaster response team.
  • Collaborative strategies for the community team to succeed with state and federal responders.
