Message regarding extension of suspension of CDP training

FEMA continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of the virus, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings.

Based on the latest CDC guidance, FEMA is extending the suspension of all resident training at and non-resident training provided by the Center for Domestic Preparedness. FEMA is also extending the suspension of resident at and non-resident training provided by FEMA’s National Emergency Training Center, National Fire Academy and Emergency Management Institute.

The extension is through May 10, 2020.

The CDP will work with impacted responders and host agencies to reschedule training at the first available opportunity. We will also provide you additional information as we have updates.

Responders with questions should contact the CDP training coordinator for their respective region:

Eastern Region -- fema-eastregioncdp@fema.dhs.gov
Central Region -- fema-centralregioncdp@fema.dhs.gov
West Region -- fema-westregioncdp@fema.dhs.gov

Host agencies with questions should contact the CDP's non-resident training manager, Clay Calkins, at clayton.calkins@fema.dhs.gov.
