Emergency Management and Homeland Security Training Center
Training those who respond!
The Emergency Management & Homeland Security Training Center (EMHSTC) provides an ever-expanding and comprehensive program of cost effective training for public and private sector agencies responsible for hazardous materials planning, response, and cleanup. Over the past several years, specialized programs have also become part of the Center curriculum offerings making the facility an integral part of Michigan's effort at being a national leader in emergency training for hazardous materials, technical rescue, and terrorism planning and response.
Courses and workshops are developed to meet or exceed the variety of planning and training requirements and recommendations of OSHA, EPA, MIOSHA, NFPA, MDPH-EMS, and others. On-site courses are conducted at the Center's four-acre site adjacent to the Michigan State Police Training Academy in Lansing. Due to the extensive hands-on nature of many of these programs, the Center utilizes a variety of training and simulation aids including railroad cars, highway tank trailers, above/below ground storage tanks, confined spaces, and personal protective clothing and equipment all intended to provide a realistic training environment. Upon successful completion of a course, students are issued a Michigan State Police certificate of training.
