Description
The Medical Management of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) Events course prepares the participant to effectively, appropriately, and safely plan for, and respond to a CBRNE incident using an all-hazards approach that can be adapted to natural disasters as well. CBRNE can be a perpetrated, a natural, or an accidental event. The course is intended to assist state and local jurisdictions in developing an all-hazards, multi-disciplined team-based approach capable of responding to a large-scale or expanding incident, including a CBRNE event. This course addresses several national priorities and capabilities that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) encourages state and local jurisdictions to establish, as outlined in the National Planning Scenarios, Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD 8), National Preparedness Goal, and the Core Capabilities. Upon course successful completion, participants will possess a working knowledge of local, state, and federal agency roles and responsibilities and an understanding of the medical emergencies they will face in a full scale event. Participants will be able to prepare for and respond to the emergency medical needs resulting from a CBRNE/terrorist incident using an all-hazards approach.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able:
* Use available resources to protect themselves during a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) response.
* Describe the effects of chemical agents, and identify and treat the signs and symptoms of chemical agent exposure in accordance with local protocol.
* Describe the effects of radiation, identify and treat the signs and symptoms of exposure in accordance with local protocol, and recognize the radiological devices through which radiation can be dispersed.
* Describe the effects of biological agents, and identify and treat the signs and symptoms of biological agent exposure in accordance with local protocol.
* Recognize the importance of an integrated all hazards approach to prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation in the context of a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) incident.
