FEMA Training

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 required to take the FEMA IS-100 course and encouraged to take the 200, 300, 700 and 800 courses. Spiritual Care Team Leaders are expected to take the 100, 200, 300, 400, 700 and 800 courses.

Please note that these courses change and sometimes the website location is moved.  Please inform us if you have problems.

Team Leaders are required to take the FEMA ICS 300 Course and encouraged to take the FEMA ICS 400 Course. These are 3 day resident courses. There is no cost to attend. Taking these courses is also an expectation of the National VOAD standards for Emotional and Spiritual Care for leaders of Spiritual Care Teams. These courses are required for emergency personnel such as fire and police officers and other emergency managers. Taking these courses will help the Spiritual Care Team Leaders to better understand the workings of Emergency Coordinators during disasters.
