Environmental​ health Training in Emergency Response (EHTER)​

What is EHTER?

Environmental Health Training in Emergency Response (EHTER) is a course that addresses the environmental health impacts of emergencies and disasters, including unsafe food, water, air, and housing; accumulation of waste; and lack of sanitation.​​ EHTER explores why residential, recreational and regulated facilities need protection when disaster strikes. EHTER cross-trains the environmental​​ health professionals​ that protect these ​​essential elements for life during emergencies. ​

The course is designed by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and taught at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP). Visit the CDP website to apply for courses and view the current course schedule. The CDP EHTER curriculum includes two modules:  ​​
