REP Plan Core Concepts Course

4 Contact Hours


The FEMA/NPD/THD/Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program has developed an Instructor-Led course that will assist Federal, State, tribal and local emergency managers more effectively meet the planning challenges presented to the emergency responder community during a radiological incident at a NRC-licensed commercial nuclear power plant. This awareness-level 0.5-day course will focus specifically and be limited to the introduction of the existing REP planning methodology. This methodology goes beyond the planning guidance provided in Comprehensive Preparedness Guide -101 and incorporates the unique preparedness aspects of FEMA’s REP Program.
