Event Description:

This performance-level course provides training on the fundamental elements of the CAMEO Suite of programs as they relate to emergencies. As such, it includes detailed technical information and hands-on practice of critical elements of the CAMEO system and its associated programs (CAMEO Chemicals, CAMEOfm, ALOHA, and MARPLOT). To better understand how the programs interface, participants are provided opportunities to practice key procedures that allow users to enhance planning and response activities associated with community risks. These exercises clarify the connections between the programs and how they can enhance emergency planning and response activities.

The usefulness of the CAMEO Suite extends far beyond hazardous material spill response. As such, the target audience typically includes all types of emergency response personnel including fire, law enforcement, emergency medical technicians, public health officials, hazardous materials (HazMat) professionals, public safety communications representatives, public works officials, and emergency managers. Others who will benefit from CAMEO training include those involved with emergencies such as security personnel, corrections officers, hospital officials, Red Cross volunteers, chemical plant staff, and other local, state, and federal employees associated with emergency planning and response. It is helpful if course participants have basic knowledge of computer operations and terminology.

To enroll in this course, participants must be US citizens and must possess or obtain a FEMA student identification number (SID).
