Managing Food Emergencies: Strategies for a Community Response is a management-level course that teaches participants how to manage food emergencies using the emergency operations center (EOC), Incident Command System (ICS) principles, and best management practices.
Participants will manage a fictional food emergency using the guidelines and strategies of the Incident and Unified Command systems. The scenario will advance with every module, beginning with Module 2, from the point that a foodborne outbreak is detected. The scenario will progress throughout the modules from surveillance and into the transition to recovery. In Module 7, participants will engage in an after-action discussion to assess their current preparedness for a food emergency and the value of using ICS principles and practices, and adding Emergency Management as a food emergency response partner.
