Event Overview
Welcome message:

This challenging program uses practical tools to prepare participants from all sectors to plan for and respond to radiological events, whether at the state, local, or individual facility level.

We bring together leaders in emergency planning to explore methodologies for creating comprehensive and integrated emergency response plans for radiological events. Drawing from decades of direct experience, Harvard School of Public Health faculty, guest speakers, and participants share practical tools and guidelines based on their successes and failures in preparing for, responding to, and communicating about radiological emergencies.

Participants examine criteria and requirements for creating an effective emergency plan, expand their ability to effectively communicate with the media and public during crisis situations, and medically manage casualties of a radiological incident.

Who Should Participate

This course is designed for anyone involved in emergency planning, response, or recovery in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors. Health physicists, public safety professionals, and first receivers and responders will also find this program beneficial. Foreign and domestic participants from organizations with the following functions are likely to attend:

  • Nuclear or energy-industry regulatory bodies
  • Homeland security and emergency management agencies
  • Defense or military organizations
  • Departments of health
  • Power generation, especially nuclear power generation
  • State and local emergency agencies
  • State radiation control agencies

*For those interested in the basics of radiation, there will be a complimentary half-day refresher on Radiological Units, Quantities, and Fundamentals on Monday, July 28th
