The National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC)

The National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) is the principal vehicle through which Department of Homeland Security/FEMA National Preparedness Directorate (NPD) identifies, develops, tests, and delivers training to state and local emergency responders.

The NDPC membership includes all of the members listed below and over 75 other partners that have received training grants from Department of Homeland Security to develop and/or deliver various courses. Each member brings a unique set of assets to the domestic preparedness program.  Go to the consortium sites listed below or the NPD's course catalog at the link below, when you find a course you want to attend as a student in a resident delivery, download an application from the consortium member site and fax to OKOHS at 405-425-7295 or contact OKOHS at 405-425-7296 or e-mail OKOHS for an application.  

If you are interested in being a host for one of the courses that can be delivered in Oklahoma, contact OKOHS to begin the process.  OKOHS will assist with locating the training site and provide funding for the site, if needed. Once scheduled OKOHS will market and complete student registration process for the course for your jurisdiction.

OKOHS is looking for students and host sites for this great opportunity to receive some of the best training available.

Most courses are available as a direct delivery where instructors travel to the Oklahoma and conduct courses or as a resident delivery course where students travel to the training site.  With either delivery method, there  is no cost for the instruction of the course(s).  

The following is brief description of each NDPC member and their expertise with a link to each site:

  • Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP): The CDP provides hands-on specialized training to state and local emergency responders in the management and remediation of WMD incidents. Located at the former home of the U.S. Army Chemical School, Fort McClellan, the CDP conducts live chemical agent training for the nation's civilian emergency response community. The training emergency responders receive at the CDP provides a valid method for ensuring high levels of confidence in equipment, procedures, and individual capabilities.  CDP Training Application
