REGISTRATION STILL OPEN FOR MARCH 2009 NTSB FAMILY
ASSISTANCE COURSE

************************************************************

The National Transportation Safety Board is offering a
three-day course - Transportation Disaster Response - Family
Assistance, at its NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Virginia
(near Washington, D.C.) on March 10-12, 2009.

This course is designed specifically for commercial
transportation officials, representatives of federal
agencies, staff of non-governmental relief organizations,
and emergency managers.  The program is instrumental in
understanding how professionals can most effectively support
the family assistance efforts within their organizations.

The curriculum is appropriate for individuals employed in
any mode of transportation (aviation, rail, pipeline,
highway or marine). Audio/video materials, case studies,
recent accident examples, and panel discussions are employed
to illustrate key principles of the unique aspects of
supporting families during a transportation disaster.

Some of the key points that will be covered will be:
*       Legal aspects of family assistance - specifics of
legal protections afforded to family members
*       Conducting effective family briefings - communicating
with grieving and traumatized families
*       Effective on-scene response - a start-to-finish look
at family assistance operations
*       Successful forensic operations - communicating with
families about the forensic response
*       Practical resources for family representatives -
developing support skills and self care.

Instructors will be from the NTSB's office of Transportation
Disaster Assistance.
