APCO Debuts Classes for Radio Operators

June 02, 2005  | 

The APCO Institute, which promotes improvement in public safety communications, is offering a new one-day course entitled "The Telecommunicator's Role in Homeland Security." This course is the first of APCO’s "Homeland Security and the Telecommunicator" series of course offerings.

"The Telecommunicator's Role in Homeland Security," based on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) National Incident Management System (NIMS), is designed to educate Telecommunicators of their vital role in recognizing terrorist incidents, especially while they are in progress.

This new course, designed to function as either a pre-conference or post-conference course at APCO International state and regional conferences, covers such important topics as modern terrorism threats, response to specific terrorism incidents, the anatomy of a terrorism incident, and resource coordination during terrorism incidents. The course also offers an Incident Command System (ICS) module designed specifically for the telecommunicator.

"It is important for telecommunicators to realize that terrorism incidents can take place anywhere at anytime and, as with most other emergencies, telecommunicators will be the first to become aware that a possible terrorist event has occurred," APCO Institute Director Candice Solie says.
