CBRNE Emergencies Medical Management Course

The U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has available an online course and a list of resources for those agencies looking to bolster their medical planning and management of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) incidents. “Health Information Resources for CBRNE” is a self-paced course and is free but requires an account for access. It carries four continuing education credits.

Offered through their Disaster Information Management Research Center, the course covers concepts of CBRNE and details emergency planners must consider when writing CBRNE-related plans. These incidents are dynamic and happen rarely enough that, without adequate and regular training, response to a true event can suffer.

The course includes information from Chemical Hazards Emergency Medical Management (CHEMM), Radiation Emergency Medical Management (REMM), and Wireless Information System for First Responders (WISER). These sites provide first responders, public information officers, response planners, and others information on nuclear power plant or reactor incidents, dirty bombs, exposure and contamination, triage guidelines, and more.

Another resource on this topic can be found on the CBRNE Branch of the Public Health Emergency website. There, you can find a variety of training resources, several planning guides
