This  starts with the FEMA on line ICS courses and goes on to live classes   
presented by FEMA, facilities like the Louisiana State University  Extension  
Service and the Wilderness Medical Society, as well as the  military training 
that we share through Camp Bullis and the Combat  Casualty Care Course.

I've found myself passing out incorrect information on the LSU WMD for EMS  
course...it is actually an operations level course...
>From Sue Roundy:
Just wanted to note that the course is operations level
(above  awareness) and is through the NCBRT at LSU. If
anyone asks you about it,  please feel free to refer them to
Rick Mathews or Steve Williams at  LSU.

So if anyone out there is interested in upgrading their knowledge of how to  
work in a HazMat/WMD scenario....INCLUDING folks who would be working the  
Emergency Entrance Triage stations at major big city hospitals, THEN this is one  
of the courses that they will want to look at taking. If you have already  
completed ICS 100/200/700, it should also qualify you to take the Hospital  
Emergency Response classes through FEMA.
it includes two days of intensive book work, and a third day of getting hot  
and sweaty in Class C protective gear (MOPP IV type for those former military  
folks out there.).
