Emergency Management Training and Exercise
About Our Training and Exercise Page
We encourage participation in training and disaster exercises - For communities, families and individuals, businesses and volunteer organization, as well as public safety and public service responders.

If you are interested in hosting training, Calumet County Emergency Management has some resources to assist you including access to trainers and grant opportunities for selected courses. Please feel free to contact us to discuss.

Below are several sections on available training offered in Wisconsin and through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Important Notes:

**To reduce the risk of identity theft, FEMA, the National Fire Academy (NFA), and the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) are eliminating the use of the Social Security Number (SSN), where possible when applying for training. FEMA has implemented the use of a Student Identification (SID) number. You will be required to obtain and use the SID in applying for NFA or EMI courses. This number will be used in place of the SSN on your application. Read more about this new application process.

**FEMA Certificates and Submission to Calumet County Emergency Management
Do note that with on-line courses FEMA is providing the course directly to you, including any certificates issued. Certificates for on-line courses are emailed directly to you upon succesful completion of courses.

Please forward a copy of FEMA certificates to the Calumet County Emergency Management Office so we also have a record of your accomplishment.
