Do you know what to do if you are
faced with mass casualties from a catastrophic event? Does
everyone around you?
USAMRICD would like to present to you an advanced-level
education opportunity from the US Army, the HM-CBRNE course. It
offers healthcare professionals state-of-the-art instruction
that may save lives in a major WMD incident. Designed for
civilian and military healthcare managers and clinicians, it is
presented by some of the nation’s leading authorities in
biological, chemical, explosive and radiation incident
This course was developed with hospital level objectives –
clinical and non-clinical. The HM-CBRNE course is intended to
help mitigate the existing gaps in support of hospital
operations during a major WMD event.
Topics are presented in a seminar format that encourages
participation. At least half of the course is devoted to group
activities and hospital teams centered on the Hospital Incident
Command System (HICS). These team efforts culminate in a high
production value multi-facility mass casualty tabletop exercise.
HM-CBRNE includes expert overview of all CBRNE fields to include
psychology of CBRNE events. Other highlights include principles
of hospital emergency management, regulatory frameworks (NIMS,
NRF, HICS), equipment and procedure demonstrations as well as a
multi-station practical exercise. Additionally, HM-CBRNE
benefits all other routine and crisis hospital operations.
HM-CBRNE is typically attended by hospital management, emergency
planners, emergency responders, public health officials,
physicians, nurses and others. The course is offered 1-2 times
per year. Typically, half of the attendees are civilian.
HM-CBRNE provides a great opportunity to meet other
professionals from across the nation who face the same
challenges you do.
This course meets the mandatory chemical/biological training
