    As Law Enforcement Professionals, we want to be the best officer we can be, respected for the job  we do and accepted as an integral part of the organization.  

    Emotional Survival for the Female Enforcer focuses on overcoming the “24/7” demands that exist in  a career serving and protecting your community, home, and family. Managing those demands can  sometimes be the most difficult part of the job. You are not alone. 

    Designed to offer skills that can be easily and immediately put into practice, we begin this course by  identifying the reality of stress and its effect on our physical and emotional well-being both on and  off duty. Once identified, we educate students on the importance of Emotional Intelligence and its  role in understanding and managing key stressors that can lead to anxiety and burnout.  

    This seminar offers interactive discussions in managing personal relationships, embracing our Strong  Professional Presence, managing “Priority Guilt” and Transitioning from “Officer to Off-Duty”.  

    Our goal is to help female officers enjoy it all by harnessing their ability to turn obstacles into  opportunities for personal growth. Course topics include but are not limited to: 

    • Identifying Unique Stressors 
    • Emotional Intelligence 
    • Balancing Home and Career 
    • Burnout 
    • The Myth of the “Magic Switch” 
    • Depression, Addiction, Divorce, and Suicide 
    • Working in a Male-Dominated Field 
    • Self-Control and Managing Emotions 
    • Having It All, Doing It All, Being It All 
    • The “Right Now Is the Right Time” Mentality

    AWR 232 is an 8-hour, DHS/FEMA-certified, tuition-free, awareness-level course. The goal of this course is to teach participants the basics of mass fatality response while providing opportunities to exchange rural perceptions and brainstorm solutions to simulated emergencies.

    Responding to a mass fatality incident, which includes the recovery, identifications, and reunification of the deceased, is one of the most difficult aspects of disaster response. In times of crisis, small, rural, and tribal communities are often ill-equipped with facilities to manage large numbers of casualties. When the time comes, communities must be prepared to use available resources to properly manage the remains that will result.

    Regardless of the agencies or organizations that respond, whether they be governmental agencies or private or non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the responsibility to coordinate and manage these outside resources rests with local authorities

    Topics include (but not limited to):

    • Define mass fatality and possible scenarios
    • Identify methods of obtaining Federal resources.
    • Identify issues to be considered in mass fatality response planning.
    • Explain the importance of mass fatality response planning.
    • Identify potential resources that should be included in a response plan.

    Who Should Attend:

    • Coroner/Medical Examiners
    • Emergency Management Personnel
    • All First Responders
    • Public Health Officials
    • Community Stakeholders
    • Citizen/Community Volunteers
    • Funeral Service Providers
    • Hospital Staff

    The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) now offers virtual, instructor-led training opportunities using Zoom for Government. This new training modality offers a secure, encrypted environment so that emergency responders can train virtually anywhere.

    This 8-hour course will be presented over two consecutive days. Each day will consist of one 4-hour training session. Participants are required to use their own computer, tablet, or smartphone during the course. Each participant should log in a few minutes early to test the audio and/or video connection. While downloading the latest Zoom client app is beneficial, it's not required.

    Registration is required through the RDPC website. Register for this course by visiting the following link: www.ruraltraining.org

    Registration Deadline:  May 18, 2021 @ 5:00 PM

    Participants are required to register no later than 24 hours in advance. A minimum of 20 registrations must be received to ensure the class will be held. FEMA S.I.D. REQUIRED. Register for your FEMA Student Identification Number by visiting https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid
