There are not many positive things that I can say about the Federal Government nowadays. I just recently discovered free emergency preparedness training provided online by FEMA. This “free” training of course is paid for by US Tax Dollars that you and I pay – so why not take advantage of it?
From the FEMA Independent Study Program website:
The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) offers self-paced courses designed for people who have emergency management responsibilities and the general public. All are offered free-of-charge to those who qualify for enrollment. To get a complete listing of courses, click on Course List link above.
FEMA’s Independent Study Program offers courses that support the nine mission areas identified by the National Preparedness Goal.
Some of the courses available include Radiological Emergency Management, An Introduction to Hazardous Chemicals, and Emergency Planning.
It appears new courses are introduced regularly.
