Training and Preparedness


DPS offers emergency preparedness training to small groups and departments. Typically, this training is in accordance with FEMA’s training. If you are interested in individually completing training online, you may do so by going to the FEMA Independent Study Program website. From here, you can select a number of training courses. The courses typically take one hour but can go as long as eight hours.

If you are a small group or department interested in doing any of these courses in a classroom setting, please email Jon Brill, Emergency Management & Planning Manager, to plan and set up a session.

Personal Preparedness

If you are interested in finding out what you can do as an individual or family to prepare for emergencies or protect yourself during an emergency, there are many places you can go to get valuable information that can help to reduce the effects of disaster.
