We are currently re-working how we train members of the Texas Crisis Resiliency Team. We hope to develop a plan in the next few months that will provide training to help with the emotional and spiritual needs of all survivors of trauma and disasters.
Team members are expected to complete the National Incident Management System (NIMS) training required of all disaster responders. These free on-line courses are valuable in helping disaster responders understand the operational organization and language of disaster response. All of the online training is intended to be “open book”. This is accomplished by printing the test questions before taking a course. All team members are expected to complete the following courses:
- FEMA IS-100-ICS http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is100b.asp
- FEMA IS-200-ICS http://www.training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is200b.asp
- FEMA IS-700.a-NIMS http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is700a.asp
- FEMA IS-800B-NRF http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS800b.asp
Please note that these courses change and sometimes the website location is moved. Please inform us if you have problems.
