Community Lifelines, Logistics, and Supply Chain Awareness

A program developed and managed by the Mid-Atlantic Center for Emergency Management & Public Safety (MACEM&PS). Approved and certified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National Preparedness Directorate, National Training and Education Division (NTED).

Worldwide, national, and regional disasters, disruptions, and cyber-attacks can result in the crippling loss of critical basic social needs affecting the core of your community. Mobilizing to resolve disruptions and restore critical needs requires the organized efforts and resources of everyone in your community.

Register now for Community Lifelines, Logistics, and Supply Chain Awareness courses to discover how your organization and local emergency management teams can work to establish, maintain, and secure critical Community Lifelines when supply chain disruptions occur. Understand how to establish the role your organization could play in helping your community maintain critical Lifelines before, during, and after a disruption or disaster. 

Designed for community stakeholders on behalf of the DHS/FEMA, this two-part introductory training course integrates supply chain sustainment techniques within FEMA’s Community Lifelines construct to prepare communities to rapidly resource essential supplies of food, water, and shelter during a disruption or disaster.

Funded and certified by DHS/FEMA, this program is free to the public. The asynchronous online course (AWR392-W) offers the basics of FEMA’s Community Lifelines and supply chain awareness.

Once you’ve successfully completed the online course, you’ll be eligible to register for a practical workshop (AWR 389) where you’ll collaborate with others from across your region – plus an expert instructional team – to dig
deeper, using scenarios and exercises to put your Lifeline knowledge into practice. Participants can earn 0.7 continuing education units (CEUs) and a certificate of completion for each course.
