Valdosta - Valdosta Technical Colleges and sister schools throughout the state offer many classes to train first responders. "We have fire science here, criminal justice here, we have EMT here, nursing techs and all those programs that first responds would have been trained in," says Valdosta Technical College President Dr. Robert Abene.
With these facilities, The Department of Technical and Adult Education and the Georgia Department of Defense selected Val Tech and 33 other technical colleges to be used as disaster command centers in case of an emergency. "So that's what this partnership is about, so they have a place to have a command post and staging area to get out to the community in case an emergency is occuring," he adds.
In case of a hurricane, terrorism attack or other large scale emergencies...the campus will be transformed into the command center and utilized by the Georgia National Guard and Georgia State Defense Force. "The emergency in terms of a command center, triage area, assembly points and bunking areas will all be allowed on campus here."
The colleges could also be used to house evacuees in case all local hotels are booked.
