Crisis Response Coordinator, CRC

In recent years the world has experienced some of the worst disasters ever recorded. Earthquakes, fires, floods, storms, and terrorist attacks are just a few of the emergency situations faced by communities. These devastating events not only take a toll on community structures and citizens, they can incapacitate the infrastructure that coordinates the response to such emergencies. Disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, 9/11, and the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico have demonstrated the absolute necessity for having timely and effective crisis response. Being able to coordinate responses for different disaster situations, accessing help of government agencies, and establishing a functional community plan can save lives and help communities get back on their feet more quickly.

Developing a crisis response plan for emergencies is essential to help responders effectively service their communities during and after a crisis. The Crisis Response Coordinator course provides the crucial training needed to establish a community plan for emergencies and disasters. It offers practical information to help those who are responsible for crisis response to coordinate and adapt various resources and agencies to fit the needs of their community in any given emergency situation.

This course is for anyone who cares about how their community is affected by disaster and desires the knowledge needed to make a difference.

The Crisis Response Coordinator course will prepare and educate you on the following:

  • How to plan for different types of disaster and crisis situations
  • The kinds of resources, programs, and agencies available during and after crises
  • Interacting with the government agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
  • Appropriate responses for various types of crises
