The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has announced that it will work in conjunction with the Puerto Rico government to train healthcare professionals how to respond to mass casualty incidents (MCI’s). FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness will offer a four-day course to over 120 first responders to prepare for chemical, biological, explosive, radiological and other hazardous material incidents. The course will conclude with an MCI field drill including the opening of an emergency treatment center. This is the first time that the Center for Domestic Preparedness offers a course outside of its home campus in Alabama. To read more about the training, click here.
