Basic Emergency Response (BERA)
The Basic Emergency Response Awareness (BERA) program prepares workers to perform construction related work tasks associated with the recovery phase of natural and man-made disaster sites. Participants receive instruction on Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and their associated health effects, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and steps to take when reporting to a disaster site. In addition participants are guided through the operations of the Incident Command System (ICS) used on disaster sites and are provided with critical incident awareness.
