FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness recently provided a virtual version of its instructor training course to 15 representatives of Blue Lake Rancheria (Blue Lake, CA); the California Tribal Emergency Response and Relief Agency (CAL TERRA), and a number of local and state agencies in the Golden State.
Completion of the 32-hour course qualifies the representatives to formally instruct select CDP courses they have successfully completed, including receiving materials from the CDP to conduct the training. It also qualifies students who attend CDP courses conducted by the representatives to receive CDP certificates upon completion of the training.
Blue Lake Rancheria is a federally-recognized tribal nation and hosts monthly preparedness training in its Resiliency Training and Innovation Center to sharpen its emergency response capabilities.
CAL TERRA is a group of Californians who work in emergency management and response and work to strengthen the response capabilities of tribal nations and others in the state.
