UT Health Northeast Police Department will be hosting the 16-hour course Medical Preparedness & Response to Bombing Incidents MGT-348 — PER-233on January 10-11, 2017 in the Academic Center Amphitheater on the UT Health Northeast Campus. This course is funded by Department of Homeland Security and taught through a partnership with Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service and New Mexico Tech.

This course is intended for members of emergency response as well as other city and county services that become a part of a community response to a bombing incident. This interactive, Instructor facilitated program employs case studies, lessons learned, validated medical data, and potential threats to the communities we serve. Sessions will address planning considerations and concerns unique to medical responders, law enforcement, and emergency planners, with an intended outcome of integrating incidents of an explosive nature to existing plans. This will enhance community preparedness by identifying areas to address when attendees return to their jurisdiction.

The course is open to Hospital Personnel, Medical Professionals, Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Services, Law Enforcement, Fire Services, Communications (Dispatchers), Specialty Teams Members (SWAT, Tactical Medics, Bomb Team, Haz Mat), City, County, State, Federal Stakeholders, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) and Private Industry.

When members of the Texas Office of Acquired Brain Injury (OABI) team visited with local leaders in Northeast Texas this past summer they were impressed with the interest and commitment to addressing brain injury, a critical public health issue, at the local level. OABI then partnered with the University of Texas in Tyler, the Center for Rural Community Health, The Piney Woods Regional Advisory Council (RAC-G), Department of State Health Services Region 4/5 (DSHS), and others to create the Northeast Texas Brain Injury Coalition (NETBIC).  NETBIC has two major goals: 1) to educate local health care providers and other related professionals about brain injury, and 2) to provide the best possible care for brain injury survivors and their families in the community.

To kick off this awareness raising movement a one day Brain Injury Summit is being held on April 13th at UT Health Northeast. Participants will gain knowledge on many facets of brain injury, and will participate in the development of action plans for the prevention of brain injury, intervention and identification efforts, and the improvement of long-term services and supports in the community.  To get an idea of what participants will learn, please see the schedule below or contact RAC-G at 903-593-4722 & [email protected]
