NEMA to hold Feb. 7 webinar on 'The Place of Death in EM: Community and Responders Impact'

from IAEM

The National Emergency Management Association (NEMA) has scheduled a webinar on “The Place of Death in Emergency Management: Community and Responders Impact” for Feb. 7, 2018, 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Although the focus of emergency management remains to prevent death and help the survivors, in too many instances death does occur. This program makes personnel aware of their responsibilities, not only to assist the living but also to deal with the realities of death. The session looks at these vivid and powerful examples: civilian and responder deaths from 9/11; Hurricanes Katrina, Harvey and Irma; a fire in Yarnell, Arizona; the shootings in Las Vegas, Nevada; and other disasters. These events demonstrate the importance of responder sensitivity to the community’s context of death and how different religions deal with death. The webinar also will include a discussion of how these fatal events impact emergency personnel, offering ways for them to deal with death and proposing an approach for responders to become stress resistant.
