Florida Week CDP Anniston
We are excited to begin the registration process for the first-ever Florida Week at the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama. This is a unique opportunity for Florida Health Care Coalition members from multiple disciplines to come together at the nation’s only training hospital, for a week of emergency preparedness training, culminating in a full-scale exercise.
There are a total of 140 spots available in three (3) courses: Health Care Leadership and Administrative Decision Making (HCL), 60 spots, Emergency Medical Operation for CBRNE Incidents (EMO), 40 spots, and Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents (HERT), 40 spots.
The following pages will provide you with a syllabus for all three courses, the target audience for each course, and the Promo Codes for registration. There is also a registration tutorial for your convenience. You must have a FEMA SID number before you can apply for a class. To obtain a FEMA SID number, go to: https://cdp.dhs.gov/FEMASID.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. A supervisor’s email address is required for the application. Supervisors will receive an email and must approve the request via link provided in the email. Supervisors have 10 business days to approve an application or it will be returned. Once the region’s allotment is full, names will go onto a waiting list.
In October, we added a 4th course: Highly Infectious Disease (HID). Please see the PROMO CODE and a brief synopsis below. The HID PER-321 will not be part of the Incident Capstone Event–ICE (full-scale exercise).
Aside from providing ‘back-fill’ for the participant, this opportunity comes at no cost to the organization. CDP covers airfare, ground transportation, lodging and meals. Please share this information with all of your members and partners. It is our hope that this training will build health care system preparedness, strengthen capabilities of emergency responders, and provide an annual training and networking opportunity for all Florida Health Care Coalition members.

The Emergency Medical Operations for CBRNE Incidents (EMO) is a four-day course that prepares responders to effectively respond to a CBRNE or Mass Casualty Incident (MCI). The EMO course provides classroom lectures, extensive hands-on training, and culminates with a hands on, practical exercise that allows responders to implement the emergency response knowledge and skills learned during the course. Some, but not all, of the critical skill sets learned during this training include Incident Command System principles, START and JUMP START and donning and doffing of PPE. In addition, the training includes tracking and transport operations in support of a mass casualty incident.
