The Stephen J. Cloobeck Regional Center for Disaster Life Support at Touro University Nevada is offering two National Disaster Life Support Foundation courses that will help you be prepared if you find yourself in a disaster or mass casualty. The certification you receive upon completion of these courses are invaluable in your career as well as those you will help.
