Safe Rooms and Shelters - CBR Threat Protection
This online engineering PDH course describes how to add chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) protection capabilities to a shelter or safe room. It also discusses air filtration, safe room criteria, design requirements, operations and maintenance, commissioning, and training required to operate a shelter or safe room.
A CBR safe room protects its occupants from outside contaminated air by providing clean, breathable air in two ways: (1) by trapping air inside the room and minimizing the air exchange (an unventilated safe room) and (2) by passing contaminated air through a filter to purify it as it is supplied to the room (a ventilated safe room).
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, planners, architects, landscape designers, construction and operations personnel, security and law enforcement agents, as well as consultants and contractors who are interested in gaining a better understanding in CBR threat protection of safe rooms and shelters.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning how air filtration affects protection of safe rooms
- Understanding the selection or design criteria for safe rooms
- Designing and installing toxic-agent safe rooms
- Operating and maintaining CBR shelters
- Commissioning a Class 1 CBR safe room
- Upgrading a CBR safe room
- Training on the use of a safe room
In this professional engineering PDH course, you need to review Chapter 3 "CBR Threat Protection" of the FEMA Publication tilted, "Safe Rooms and Shelters" (FEMA 453).
