Mississippi Office of Homeland Security Training

One of the primary goals of the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security is to educate, train and equip emergency responders for possible disasters such as: (CBRNE) Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive, as well as disasters occurring naturally including: hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and viruses. To this end, Mississippi Office of Homeland Security works tirelessly with emergency response agencies to make training opportunities available throughout the state.

Additionally, MOHS trains and equips community volunteers so they can take care of themselves, their families and communities should help not be readily available. Examples include the MS Citizen Corps (CCP),  MS Youth Preparedness Initiative (MyPI) and Community Emergency Response Teams. For more information on community training please click on the “Citizen Info” tab of the MOHS website.

MOHS has partnered with a number of local, state, and federal agencies to host training opportunities across the state. Click the training classes menu above to see the current list of training opportunities.
