At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
· Summarize the basic concepts related to riverine flooding.
· Analyze flood threats for a given scenario.
· Determine how to coordinate with multiple agencies, groups and organizations to plan for riverine flooding.
· Explain the advantages and disadvantages of expedient flood works.
· Develop a flood emergency plan for a given scenario.
· Summarize the considerations involved in managing a volunteer workforce.
· Describe the processes, equipment, and considerations for monitoring flood works.

The National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) at Louisiana State University invites you to join us for
a unique training opportunity. The NCBRT is offering the following Department of Homeland Security (DHS) certified course:
Critical Decision Making for Complex Coordinated Attacks

 This course provides first responders from multiple disciplines with skills to manage the initial response to a
large-scale attack in a chaotic environment during a complexcoordinated attack (CCA). It aims to train responders in how
to use intuitive skills such as observation, analysis,anticipation, and awareness to recognize the possibility of an
attack involving multiple incidents of an extreme magnitudethat inundate resources, exceed conventional tactics and
strategies, and often require a joint response involvingmembers from multiple disciplines and jurisdictions. Topics
for discussion include recognizing the characteristics of a potential CCA; coordinating and integrating the response of
multiple disciplines and agencies; managing resources; using information sharing and intelligence gathering to
develop awareness; and solving problems using creative thinking. Participants will learn to gather and disseminate
critical information accordingly in order to facilitate rapid analysis.

They will also learn to recognize and prevent potential response obstacles or risks to safety including
self-deployment and over convergence of assets. Participants will apply the skills learned in Critical Decision
Making for Complex Coordinated Attacks through interactive activities, facilitated discussion, and practical
application in a training environment. 

Professional Disciplines: Law Enforcement, Fire Service,
EMS
The primary target audience for the Direct Delivery version
of this course includes:
• Emergency responders: police, fire, and emergency
medical services personnel, including those who are likely to
assume command at some point during response to a
complex coordinated attack.

Aviation is one of the more complex components of All Hazard response and remains one of the least understood. This academy is designed to immerse the participants in the aspects of being a pilot, running a successful ongoing program and working with other agencies in complex mission sets.

The 2019 Drone Academy was created for those who are looking to take this concept to the next level and are serious about making drone operations as safe and successful as possible. Created by The Blue Cell, LLC, over a decade of experience has gone into its creation and the capstone exercise at the end of the academy. Whether you are a one person show at your agency, a member of the Command and General Staff on an All-Hazards (AH) Incident Management Team (IMT) or an administrator of an agency that is utilizing unmanned aircraft and would like to know more about using unmanned aircraft on day to day emergency operations, this academy will share a substantial amount of imformation.

Additional target groups are those in special operations units ( police or fire), public works personnel, logistics personnel, day to day aerial managers, emergency managers working consequence issues and damage assessment, and mapping and support personnel.
