A collaborative endeavor between Jackson & Josephine County Emergency Management to help the citizens of the Rogue Valley prepare for and respond to disasters


Josephine County Emergency Management hosts several types of training classes to help residents get prepared and get involved. Class schedules vary, and some classes are now offered virtually. As our network expands, additional classes may be added. We currently offer the following: 

  • Prep-U - a seven-part preparedness series - see link under Get Ready Rogue for detailed information
  • Austere Medical - emergency medical response without standard equipment or ER - for all skill levels
  • Comprehensive Water - everything you need to know about how to find, filter and purify water
  • Advanced Wound Care - when medical help isn't coming
  • Ham Radio - emergency communications
  • SAR - Search and Rescue Academy
  • Death and Dying in a Disaster - dealing with the deceased - the legalities, practicalities and ceremony when no services are available

Currently, there is one distribution list for all classes. Please enter your full name, email address and phone number in the message body. Enter "Add Me to Your Class List" in the subject line.
