Regional Training Calendar

Peninsulas EMS Council is the “go to” source for information on EMS training and education throughout the region!

Whether hosted by PEMS, our sister regional councils, or produced by our agency and health system partners, PEMS is the central repository in the region for training information.

If your organization is providing training and you would like to make that training available to others, please let us know below and we will post it to the Regional Training Calendar.

Disaster Management & Emergency Preparedness Course

DMEP Save the Date 19 opt

Greetings - Registration is now open for our Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition Disaster Management Emergency Preparedness (DMEP) class! The course will be held on Thursday June 13, 2019 at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk 8:00am – 5:00pm.

This is an American College Surgeons course that is for acute care providers (i.e., surgeons; anesthesiologists; emergency medicine physicians; emergency room, operating room, intensive care unit, and trauma nurses; and paramedics) who will most likely be the first receivers of casualties following major disasters.

DMEP is a one-day course that is both didactic and interactive. Major topics addressed include planning, triage, incident command, disaster injury patterns and pathophysiology, and consideration for special populations. Small group discussions are based on illustrative scenarios.
