Disaster preparedness course available

ALGONQUIN – The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium is bringing a free Department of Homeland Security-certified course on disaster recovery in rural communities to the area.

This eight-hour instructor-led course will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 14 in the police training room at the Algonquin Village Hall, 2200 Harnish Drive.

This course teaches community leaders and emergency managers in rural communities how to plan for and execute disaster recovery efforts. Examples from Hurricane Katrina and towns devastated by tornadoes will be used as case studies to examine why communities were successful or unsuccessful in their recovery efforts. Additionally, students will actively engage in a fictional disaster recovery scenario.

Registration is required by noon July 31. It may be done online at https://www.ruraltraining.org/training/schedule/2013-08-14-mgt415-algonquin-il-001.

For information, call Jared VanArsdall at 606-677-6000 or email the RDPC at info@ruraltraining.org.
