This is an interactive course designed to prepare emergency responders to instruct and/or understand the CAMEO suite of computer programs. The course provides an overview of the fundamental elements of the CAMEO suite of programs as they apply to WMD threats. It includes detailed information as well as hands-on practice of critical elements of the CAMEO system and its associated programs (ALOHA, MARPLOT, LandView, and Tier II Submit). To better understand how the programs interface, participants are provided opportunities to practice key CAMEO procedures that allow users to enhance planning and response activities associated with WMD threats. These exercises clarify the connections between the programs and how they can enhance emergency planning and response to WMD hazards activities. The course will prepare individuals representing state and local emergency response agencies to conduct CAMEO WMD workshops for those involved in WMD emergency planning or response at the state or local level.
