Accident/Incident Response Preparedness (AIP 21-1)

August 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am - August 27, 2020 @ 4:00 pm


Course Description

This course is designed for individuals who are involved in either preparing emergency response plans or responding to incidents and accidents as a representative of their organization. It is based on the premise that accidents are relatively rare events and organizations may have little experience in dealing with them. The aftermath of an accident or serious incident typically involves complex, challenging, and stressful situations. An organization can significantly reduce the negative impact of these events with preparation and the development of an effective response plan.

This updated course has been extended to four full days to integrate communications in the digital age.


To provide information on effective preparation for accident/incident response, including organizational policy and planning, operational and technical aspects, and humanitarian considerations.
