Teton County Emergency Management Program Assistant Graduates from FEMA’s Emergency Management Basic Academy Emmitsburg

Posted on

Emmitsburg, MD-Jenny M. Kruger graduated from FEMA’s National Emergency Management Basic Academy at the Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, MD., after she completed the full curriculum that provides the basic knowledge and skills to help meet the unpredictable challenges in the field of emergency management.

Kruger completed the five courses in the Basic Academy that includes Foundations of Emergency Management; Science of Disaster; Planning: Emergency Operations; Exercise Design; and Public Information and Warning.

FEMA’s National Emergency Management Basic Academy is the entry-point for individuals pursuing a career in emergency management. Basic Academy offers the tools to develop comprehensive foundational skills needed in emergency management. For those who are new to emergency management or for those who are transferring from another profession, the Basic Academy also provides a unique
opportunity to build camaraderie and establish professional contacts. Students learned to understand the roles, responsibilities, and legal boundaries associated with emergency management. It is the first of a three-level Academy series in the Emergency Management Professional Program (EMPP).

The EMPP curriculum is designed to provide a lifetime of learning for emergency managers and includes three separate, but closely threaded, training programs including the National Emergency Management Basic Academy; a specialized and technical training program to develop specific, fundamental skill sets; the National Emergency Management Advanced Academy; a program to develop
the next generation of emergency management leaders who are trained in advanced concepts and issues, advanced leadership and management, and critical thinking and problem solving; and the National Emergency Management Executive Academy; a program designed to challenge and enhance the talents of the nation’s emergency management senior executives through critical thinking, visionary strategic planning, challenging conventional concepts, and negotiation and conflict resolution
applied to complex real-world problems.

Kruger completed her training on May 19, 2017.

The purpose of this performance-level course is to provide the operational level details to support many of the topics covered in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) approved AWR Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents – Partnering Rural Law Enforcement and the Local School Systems awareness-level course.

Rural schools, law enforcement, other emergency responders, and community stakeholders are often limited in their access to resources, so it is imperative that all potentially affected parties collaborate in planning, preparation, communication, response, and recovery in the event of a school-based incident. Moreover, these affected parties must come together to practice their interoperable skills through drills and exercises to ensure the strategies in place provide for an effective crisis response and collaborative recovery

.With the intent of building upon the foundation of the AWR 148 course and utilizing an all-hazards approach, this two-day course will provide content instruction, develop concept-specific skills, and provide opportunities for law enforcement, school personnel, and community stakeholders to collaboratively apply the course objectives in scenario- based applications.
