|COURSE DESCRIPTION|| |
In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, it is anticipated that the first several days will be dedicated to emergency response and rescue operations. Responding to disasters must be a well coordinated effort between the private and public sectors. Local, state and federal environmental health teams must include experts in all aspects of environmental health if and when available. This course will discuss environmental sampling and monitoring procedures for water, air, soil and sediment. Video clips demonstrating the sampling procedures are also included.
