The Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council (NERAC) is now accepting applications for qualified first responders to attend a five-day Active Attack Integrated Response (AAIR) Train-the-Trainer course. The five-day training will be held on September 23-27, 2019 in Marblehead, MA, and instructors from the ALERRT Center at Texas State University will be provided. You must attend all five days of the training to receive credit.
The AAIR course, created and developed by the ALERRT Center at Texas State University, improves the integration of Police, Fire, and EMS personnel during active shooter events. Students will learn medical skills based on TECC guidelines, how to establish initial/unified command, and the importance of rendering aid to victims via rescue task forces.
NERAC will be offering BF/OT reimbursement for all first responders who work within the Northeast Homeland Security Region at up to $35/hr.
This project is being funded with Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds, via the State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) awarded by the MA Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Office of Grants and Research.
September 23rd – 27th, 2019

- 8:00am – 4:00pm each day
