The course describes the realistic responsibilities of the job here in Vermont. The course includes all mission areas of emergencies and disasters, the core capabilities that make up the responsibilities, the integration and communications needed to be successful. And finally the course strongly emphasizes the teamwork between emergency management, emergency services and the municipal leadership.”

Target Audience: The audience for this fundamental course includes local emergency management directors, coordinators and staff, emergency services personnel and volunteers, and municipal employees.
