Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and International Affairs, Lori Faeth, recently announced the availability of the All Hazard Resource Advisor (AH-READ) - Basic Course. Resource advisors are advocates for natural, cultural, and historic resources within the Incident Management Team. This online training course, which is now live in DOI Learn, will be a prerequisite for any Department of the Interior (DOI) employee who wishes to be deployed as a READ on emergency response operations (e.g., Hurricane Sandy).

This course is the first of three in the READ curriculum. Frank Muth, Diane Knudson, and the Kreate division at NCTC worked with a team of subject matter experts from the Department of the Interior and Texas A&M University to develop the course.
