Karen A. Corsetti of the Peachtree City Fire Department recently completed homeland security training at the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Ala.

The training provides emergency responders with critical skills and confidence to be prepared to effectively respond to local incidents or potential incidents with weapons of mass destruction.

Corsetti is a volunteer paramedic/firefighter for the department.

The CDP offers advanced hands-on training to help responders effectively prevent, respond to and recover from real-world incidents or potential incidents involving WMDs.

The CDP has a special training facility that features civilian training exercises in a true toxic environment using chemical agents.

All training at the CDP is federally funded.
