Disaster Site Worker Course
This course is designed for personnel who provide skilled support services (e.g., utilities, demolition, debris removal, heavy equipment operation, governmental personnel other than Fire/Rescue/Law Enforcement, NGOs such as Red Cross and Salvation Army, etc.) or site clean-up services (including hazardous waste cleanup) in response to a disaster (hurricane, earthquake, wildfire, tornado, flood, tsunami, oil spill, terrorism, etc.). The goal of this course is to increase the participant's awareness of the safety and health hazards that may be encountered at a natural or human-caused disaster site. The importance of respiratory protection, other Personal Protective Equipment, and proper decontamination procedures that may be used to mitigate the hazards will be emphasized.
Participants will learn how they will support the use of an Incident Command System through the safe performance of their job responsibilities; develop an awareness of traumatic incident stress and the measures that can reduce this stress; and be trained to perform the following: inspection, care, and maintenance of an air-purifying respirator, donning and doffing an air-purifying respirator, and respirator seal check.
