					A Full-Service Emergency Preparedness Corporation Plan – Prepare – Perform “Where the Benefits Outlast the Memories”

Client Services Packet
EnMagine, Inc. has developed innovative planning tools, training programs and exercise packages that address the nexus of emergency management, hazardous materials emergency response, and the healthcare industry. Our marquee programs are the HazMat for Healthcare courses with the First Responder/Receiver Awareness and Operations courses designed to meet, and exceed, current OSHA standards and guidance. Recently added are an online Awareness Refresher course and a Hospital Hazardous Materials Incident Commander (HHMIC) course. To the best of our knowledge - no courses of this type currently exist. I would venture to say that our hazardous materials programs are the de facto national standard if our work across the country (and internationally) and the high volume of unique visitors to our website are any indicator. Much of our work is to repeat and referred clients. We provide Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) training that incorporates National Incident Management System 100, 200, and 700 competencies. Our HICS FUNdamentals makes very dull material palatable, digestible, and effective. A version of the program is available for Executives. These sessions can include exercises of varying intensity. Other components in our toolbox include customized training and exercising for the private sector, public health, and local jurisdictions on many aspects of emergency, environmental, and health & safety management. We have recently added the Weapons of Mass Murder and Mayhem course (WMMM) and courses on Public Information. Our programs are always dynamic and in the forefront of the industry. Once you read through this packet we are sure you will find what you need to enhance your current emergency management programs or find the tools necessary to start a whole new, exciting and effective program. Effective safety management is cost-effective.

EnMagine, Inc. along with its strategic partners is one of the major delivery vehicles of planning, training and exercising nationwide for healthcare and public health. This packet is intended for hospitals, clinics, extended care facilities, laboratories, healthcare associations, public health organizations, and communities that are interested in improving their capabilities:  To manage overall emergencies, and  To specifically address hazardous materials emergencies (including weapons of mass destruction) involving contaminated patients and internal spills. EnMagine will come to your area and present any of our important programs in your facility or we will find other meeting space as needed. We prefer to conduct our training in a healthcare setting in cooperation with local organizations. EnMagine coordinates with the client to identify delivery dates that best meet your organization’s needs. When we complete our training program, we leave behind a well-trained core of staff and a cadre of instructors (if the Train-the-Trainer class is presented) to ensure a robust and sustainable local capability. Local trainers can then provide the curricula for noncommercial use. A number of communities are using these courses as a means to provide training for hospitals, public health, and clinics using HRSA/ASPR, DHS/OGT/ODP, HMEP, CDC, MMRS, SEPs, tobacco settlement grants, and other innovative funding sources. Moreover, what better way to demonstrate compliance with the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations Emergency Management Standards than by training and working in concert with healthcare organizations in your area? (EnMagine will work to accommodate specific needs of client organizations and their communities; and to meet and exceed the client’s expectations.)

Some clients prefer to repeat the HICS Fundamentals and HAZMAT for Healthcare Awareness courses in lieu of Instructor/Train-the-Trainer programs. The courses combine:  Lecture format  Small group activities  Multi-media presentations  Chemical lab recreations (WMMM)  Other adult education techniques  An enjoyable and engaging training program. o (Note: These are important subject matters. While we employ adult education techniques to make the training enjoyable we never lose sight of the seriousness of the topics or the potential consequences.) The course content is customized to be relevant for the delivery area. Courses can be reconfigured to meet the client’s needs within our quality standards.

Internal Many different individuals benefit from attending the training programs, based on their expected job functions. EnMagine would be happy to work with your organization to assist in identifying the appropriate attendees. Regional All of the healthcare organizations in the region surrounding your facility may be invited to attend. We have found that working together as a community has many benefits including; economies of scale, establishing de facto community standards and acceptance, bulk purchasing discounts, reduced training burden for shared staff, and facilitating mutual aid.

Certification and CEUs
These training sessions are designed to be eligible for continuing education credits. Each state has different requirements. We work with the sponsoring organizations to facilitate the granting of continuing education units with appropriate state accrediting bodies.
