Disaster Response Training
Snohomish County, Washington
In 2016 and 2017, Empact Northwest was pleased to enter into a relationship with Snohomish County Facilities Management, providing them with basic and advanced rescue and disaster response training. Our team of instructors developed a custom course for their entire facilities management staff that covered preparations and personal response to a disaster as well as basic structural collapse safety, building marking, simple search techniques, and basic victim access and removal. In addition, we helped Snohomish county develop a small, intermediately trained internal response element so that the county would be better prepared to manage large scale disasters if emergency services were not immediately available.
