// All Hazards Disaster Response.
The U.S. All Hazards Disaster Response (AHDR) course teaches students how to respond to the many types of disaster scenarios they may encounter, including natural disasters and infrastructure failings, fires and radiological events, pandemics, active shooter incidents, and other mass casualty events. AHDR educates participants on how to analyze potential threats in their area, assess available resources, and create a response plan that will save lives.
Features of a medical response plan covered in the course include:
Communicating effectively during disasters.
Mutual aid and interoperability.
Managing resources such as supplies, medications and equipment.
Triage and transportation strategies and challenges.
Patient tracking and evacuation.
At the start of the course, participants conduct a “hazards vulnerability analysis” to assess features of their environment, both natural and man-made, that pose risk along with assessing the needs of vulnerable populations, such as assisted-living residents or hospital patients that need special consideration during such an event.
Content is presented in the context of realistic scenarios, culminating with a large-scale mass casualty activity.
AHDR is appropriate for all levels of EMS practitioners. This course is offered in the classroom and provides 8 hours of CAPCE credit and NREMT recognition.
AHDR courses run by us are delivered by a highly experienced team of subject matter experts including our lead instructor for this course (the UK editor of the 9th Edition NAEMT Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support Course "Disaster Management' Chapter).
New dates very soon.
Venue: Given current events (Covid19), we are able to run the NAEMT AHDR online by zoom. Given that fact, NAEMT have removed the post course exam requirement for the duration of the period in which they allow the course to be run virtually. Full AHDR certification will still be issued.
Cost: £190 a head.
