Students will learn the basics about how police, fire, and EMS agencies respond to emergencies.
Emergency response is a vital part of the everyday operations of departments. Without training and understanding of how this all works, agencies would fail to provide necessary services. Through a coordinated effort, counties set-up 911 centers as a place for citizens to call for emergencies. From there, appropriate resources are dispatched to emergencies. In the event of a large scale crisis, the government has placed response plans at every level, and they continue to do so with research that goes into crisis planning.
