    What: ER310: Food Safety Issues in the event of Disasters


    When: Monday, July 15th (0900–1500)


    Target Audience: EHOs with minimal experience responding to food safety disaster events. Participants must take the asynchronous version of ER310 before attending this exercise.


    Cost: Free, Pre-Registration Required


    Description:

    Join us in exploring the challenges of food safety after a disaster in a practical activity at this year’s AEC.  There will be a hands-on activity taking place on July 15th, in Pittsburgh, PA, before the start of the 2024 Annual Education Conference & Exhibition (AEC). This activity is an opportunity for learners to apply knowledge to a practical experience that requires critical and creative thinking.

    This course is free, but you will need to do some prep work to be able to attend. It is all self-paced and will help you make the most out of the in-person course at the AEC. Sign up for both the asynchronous course and the practical activity. Or find out more about the program. You do not have to attend the NEHA AEC to participate in the tabletop exercise, but it is highly encouraged.
