EM358 Evacuation and Re-Entry Planning Course
This course was released by FEMA in January 2001 and will take approximately nine hours to complete.
The range of natural
and technological hazards from which communities may be at risk varies
greatly around the United States. Community emergency management programs
are intended to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies
created by those hazards. One of the steps that communities must be prepared
to take in an emergency is evacuation of its population on short notice.
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency's (FEMA's) Emergency Management Institute (EMI) develops
and conducts training on a wide range of emergency management topics.
Evacuation and re-entry planning are addressed in a number of hazard-specific
training activities for emergency managers. However, there was no training
available from FEMA that provides the opportunity to focus on the principles
and methods of evacuation and re-entry planning and operations. This course
was developed in response to field requests for such training.
This course does not address the process for deciding when evacuation is warranted or when the evacuated area is safe for re-entry. Those issues are dealt with in other FEMA courses for specific hazards, such as Hurricane Planning and Radiological Accident Assessment.
The goal of this course is to provide the participants with knowledge and skills needed to design and implement an evacuation and Re-entry Plan for their respective jurisdictions.
completing this course, participants will be able to do the following:
1. Describe the reasons
for conducting pre-disaster evacuation and re-entry planning, exercising
and community education.
The target training
audience for Evacuation and Re-entry Planning includes persons responsible
for planning, implementing and carrying out evacuations. This includes
but is not limited to local and State government emergency program managers,
emergency planners, and response personnel.
