Recertified: AWR-118 Biological Incidents Awareness

This awareness-level course provides a brief overview of biological incidents that have occurred in the recent past; biological agents that are naturally occurring, could be accidentally released, or could be used deliberately; the typical course of disease and how that may vary in a deliberate incident; an overview of biological agents as terrorist weapons; and methods of protection from biological agents (with an emphasis on protection using methods and equipment readily available to emergency responders and the general public). The course is designed to help participants recognize when a biological incident is underway, take steps to report it, and know how to protect themselves during a biological incident.
