Disaster Preparedness Training

Disaster Preparedness Training Events and Opportunities:

NorCal EMS is committed to providing information regarding training programs to educate our region's healthcare and public safety workforce in the fundamental principles of preparing for, responding to and mitigation of, a Weapons of Mass Destruction and/or Mass Casualty event.

We continually strive to promote regional efforts to make available curricula and continuing education, for health care and public safety professionals, that broadens existing knowledge and ensures essential multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary responses.

Training is provided in a number of ways: hosted, onsite and online. We will continue to add and update training course information as it becomes available.
