INTRODUCTION

As employees of the East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, we all have various daily responsibilities in our respective sections. Our daily activities are focused around the Departmentís mission to comprehensive, integrated and coordinated public safety program and to ensure natural and manmade risks are reduced, emergency services delivered and consequences of events managed to provide a safe, livable and sustainable community. During daily "non-disaster" operation all employees focus on their sections program areas (training, planning and research, mitigation, response coordination finance etc.). However, during "disaster operations" our mission remains the same, but the focus becomes narrow: meet the needs of the victims and take care of the responders. During disaster operations, you may be pulled away from your daily programmatic activities to perform disaster operations. In most cases, your disaster operations role might not mirror your "non-disasterĒ role. Therefore, specialized training in disaster operations is necessary. Employees and key officials who are a part of the emergency management program are encouraged to participate in the training also.

The Director of EBRP Homeland Security provides key officials, the mayor and department heads, emergency management and homeland security information updates on a monthly basis at department head meetings. Key officials or their designee participate in emergency management and homeland security exercises, such as our yearly Riverbend Exercise, and tabletop exercises.

All full-time professional level employees of EBRP Mayor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency preparedness will obtain their Louisiana Emergency Manager Certification by their third year of full-time employment. There are 100 hours of classroom training that are required to obtain the LEM certification. Training hours that meet the LEM certification requirements and the application can be found at www.lepa.org External web link not maintained by City of Baton Rouge

All employees will maintain any certifications that are necessary to fulfill their obligations and skill levels required of their current position as deemed necessary by civil service. Every employee is encouraged to strive to improve their skills through training and education.

The Department has a commitment to excellence, and is centered upon teamwork and team improvement. Education and training are key aspects in the development and maintenance of an effective team. The goals of the Departmentís internal training curriculum are the following:

Increase the day-to-day programmatic and emergency operations knowledge of the individual and the team as a whole,

Provide cross-training in various emergency functions,

 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES
