Hi Amber, Congratulations on your new position!
I second what Bill has said. NEHA has a wide variety of courses available. I recently sat for the environmental health training for emergency response (EHTER) offered through NEHA in conjunction with the CDC. The course addresses some of the issues that you will be facing as an environmental health professional. Additionally, many health departments are becoming increasingly involved with emergency preparedness, so you may be ahead of the curve! As Bill said, MANY relevant courses are available online, the cost of membership is worthwhile.
