FEMA IS-102.C: Preparing for Federal Disaster Operations: FEMA Response Partners Course Overview
This course is designed to help prepare participants for deployment as a FEMA response partner to a domestic incident. Responding to incidents requires that we must be ready, willing, and able to deploy at a moment’s notice. This course provides personnel with practical tips and advice for incident deployment.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Prepare for deployment, including detailing what information to gather, what steps to take, and what things to pack.
- Check in when arriving at the assigned location.
- Acclimate to the working and living conditions at the assigned incident facility.
- Take care of themselves during deployment.
- Maintain standards for accountability.
- Complete the check-out process.
This course is designed for FEMA response partners, including personnel from other Federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and private-sector companies.
It is suggested that personnel who have not completed the IS-700 and IS-800b courses do so before completing this course. If you are a Reservist, you should complete the IS-101 Deployment Basics course, available through the FEMA Knowledge Center or the Independent Study Website.
