Volcanic crises awareness

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UH Mānoa)

Type: Training Course Date: 01 - 04 Jun 2012 Location: United States of America (Honolulu, Hawaii) Venue: University of Hawaii at Manoa Department of Urban and Regional Planning

This training course is FEMA certified. This 2-day course will provide an introduction to volcanic crises and will enhance the participants' ability to support their organizations' preparedness and response efforts for future volcanic crises. It provides an understanding of:

• Processes, impacts, and causes of volcanic hazards
• Current monitoring and hazard assessment tools and products
• Volcano warning and dissemination systems and methods
• Community response to eruptions and volcanic crises

In the final module, students will participate in a facilitator-led scenario-based group activity that challenges them to identify effective actions that will reduce the impact of a volcanic crisis in their communities. In these activities, participants apply their knowledge of the presented materials to actual preparedness, mitigation, and response issues. Through these exercises they come to understand how organizational preparedness and community-level planning support the mitigation of volcanic hazards.
