GOHSEP G-386 Mass Fatalities Training Course

Dates: May 12-14, 2014
Location: Jefferson Parish Emergency Management, 910 3rd Street, Gretna, LA

Course Description:

Mass fatality incidents necessitate the need for a highly coordinated response. Emergency response personnel often deal with fatalities in the course of their normal duties, however, it is important for response personnel to understand the sights, sounds, and smells they will encounter in responding to a mass fatality incident. Even the most experienced and hardened responders can become overwhelmed at the devastation often associated with a mass fatality incident. This training is designed to provide response personnel at all levels with the tools to prepare for a mass fatality incident and to develop a plan to manage the incident scene. This 3 day course will also help mentally prepare responders when these incidents occur as well as define the roles and responsibilities of the various local, state, and federal agencies involved in the response efforts.
