ORLANDO, Fla. (June 22, 2012) --- Wightman & Associates, LLC, a consulting company based in Orlando, recently completed a week-long training program it developed for FEMA disaster workers in Missouri, California and New York.
Gina Wightman, president of Wightman & Associates, developed the training program and headed the training team.
The training course included introduction to hazard mitigation field operations and several specialist training programs, Wightman said.
Wightman & Associates developed the training program to provide new hazard mitigation disaster workforce employees with a practical application-based opportunity to learn the basic concepts, principals and practices needed to be successful in hazard mitigation disaster assignments.
Wightman said course participation included FEMA employees who have recently been assigned to hazard mitigation disaster operations and those who have been working in such positions without formal hazard mitigation training, along with state employees working in hazard mitigation.
