Disability Awareness for First Responders – Train the Trainer Program Nov. / Dec. 2013

Firefighter/Emergency Medical Services Disability Awareness Train the Trainer Session Announcement – Erie County NY

The New York State First Responder Disability Awareness Training project at Niagara University is pleased to announce the rollout of the Train the Trainer program for Firefighters and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel.

If you are an emergency responder who has an interest in educating your peers on how to properly respond to individuals with disabilities, we invite you to register for one of the upcoming training sessions. You may receive EMS non-core credit hours for attending.

Developed with input from emergency responders from across NYS with support from the NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control and NYS DOH EMS, this training both sensitizes and educates emergency responders on how to effectively identify, address, and respond to various disabilities they will encounter in their line of duty.

This program is developed strictly for firefighters and EMS personnel with the intent to TRAIN other firefighters and EMS. This is NOT a training session for those who do not intend to train their peers. NU FR-DAT will track all attendees in this session relative to the department or agency they belong to and record when they train firefighters and EMS personnel. This is a FREE training. All attendees must fill out the attached application and be approved by the Project Director in order to attend.

This is will be FREE four-day training.

There are other sessions being conducted throughout the state. If you are interested attending a session at another location or would like to host a training, please contact us.

Training will be held from 7:00pm-10:00pm Wednesday, November 20th; Monday, November 25th; Wednesday, December 4th; & Tuesday December 10th, 2013 at Erie County Emergency Services Training & Operations Center, 3359 Broadway, Cheektowaga, NY 14227.
