Homeland Security – National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (NERRTC)
As a founding member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), the National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (NERRTC) has been a leader in homeland security training since its inception in 1998.
Congressionally mandated and partially funded by the U.S. Congress, NERRTC provides local, state, tribal and territorial jurisdictions with high-quality, hands-on, scenario-driven leadership training, exercises, and technical assistance.
NERRTC clients and customers include state and federal agencies, municipal and county governments, private industries, public school systems and university campuses, law enforcement agencies, emergency medical services, fire departments, public works departments, utility companies, and public health agencies. Since 1998, NERRTC has provided training for more than 925,086 responders in all 50 states, U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
NERRTC assists and plays a key role in DHS/FEMA’s establishing and maintaining the concept of “culture of preparedness” and has sharpened its focus on that concept by incorporating an “all-of-nation”/ “whole community,” risk-driven, capabilities-based approach to preparedness. TEEX/NERRTC provides training in thirteen core competency areas across the community: cybersecurity, crisis communications, executive and elected officials, hazardous materials awareness and operations, health and medical services, incident management, infrastructure protection, public works, search and rescue, threat and risk assessment, disaster recovery, sports, and special events management (risk, evacuation, and incident management), and planning (training gap analysis).
