This course teaches participants how to safely and effectively respond to biological incidents using an integrated approach. Participants will learn how to identify biological agents by discussing surveillance indicators of a biological incident. Then, participants will identify the major characteristics of biological agents and biological agent dissemination methods. Next, participants will apply the skills and knowledge they learned in this course to response and recovery. Finally, participants will apply lessons learned in this course by responding to a mock scenario. 

Participants will discuss personal, victim, environmental, and area protection during a biological incident. This course will teach responders the basic concepts of safety during an actual or suspected biological incident. Responders should be vigilant to recognize any indicators of a biological incident.
