“What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?”

Emergencies happen all the time. It's important to have training and practice needed to know how to properly respond to many different situations that may occur. 


At home, once you have built your kit and developed your plan you need to practice and maintain it. Train your family to manage disasters by practicing and conducting family disaster drills. This will help you know what to do during difficult times. 


In your communities, there are tons of really great training opportunities across the country aimed to help emergency managers, first responders, community organizers and volunteers learn more about responding to a variety of emergency situations. These programs are designed to get you the information and training you need to start doing the same in your communities. 


The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. 

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.


Large Animal Emergency Rescue Training

Large animal emergency rescue is the response phase of a natural or manmade disaster or accident where specialized training and equipment are required to rescue a large animal such as a horse or cow. 

For many people across the country, a large animal represents a huge financial investment and even someone’s livelihood. In many rural areas, first responders are not equipped with the proper training to properly rescue livestock, horses, and other large animals.

FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI)
