NEW! Bystander Training offered by NYC DOHMH

NYC-Health

The Office of Emergency Preparedness at the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has an excellent new course to offer our community partners – Bystander Training.

Bystander Training is a course designed to educate the average citizen about explosions and actions they may be able to take to save lives. The course begins with an overview of improvised explosive devices and suspicious packages, followed by specific steps to take and NOT take upon discovery. Using case studies including the Boston Marathon, students learn about secondary devices and what to expect at a post-blast scene with emphasis on hazards, injuries, and personal safety. The goal of the course is to help “bystanders” understand their own capabilities and how they may be able to assist during an emergency. Media clips will be viewed to reinforce bystander potential and foster group discussion. Students will have a better idea about how to communicate with victims and responders being mindful of mental health issues, short- and long-term. The course provides options and resources for additional training on the subject and invites students to seek opportunities to increase their personal preparedness.
