Community Based Approach to Respond to All-Hazards Threats Training Survey
The Center for Agriculture and Food Security and Preparedness at the University of Tennessee is planning the development of a new management level training course supported by the Department of Homeland Security entitled “Response to an Expanded All-Hazards Threat in Tribal Nations.” This new course is intended to provide Tribal Nations with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to effectively detect, respond to, manage and mitigate all-hazards threats, using a whole community approach. This course will encompass an expanded view of all-hazards and will include disease outbreaks, environmental health threats and the more “traditional” all-hazards threats of natural and man-made disasters in the course scope. The Center is seeking input as to the topics that should be covered in this course and on strategies to most effectively engage our intended audience in a community based approach to response to all-hazards threats. A community-based approach includes multiple disciplines and professions in developing and initiating a strategy to handle resource intensive incidents impacting a community. The Center would greatly appreciate your participation in a brief survey in order to help us make decisions on how best to serve your training needs.
