Course Description

US FlagThe Disaster Management for Public Services course provides real world training to public service professionals helping to provide both the knowledge and skills necessary to protect their communities and infrastructure from potential or actual threats. During this course, participants work together in multidisciplinary teams to apply the course information with their professional experience in a variety of hands-on, small group activities, and disaster scenarios.

This course brings together emergency management personnel who are expected to identify and mitigate hazards, and who plan and manage disaster response and recovery efforts within their jurisdictions. Representatives from public service agencies, fire services, law enforcement, emergency medical services, emergency planning, public health, and hazardous materials response organizations are encouraged to attend.

Participants will be introduced to natural and man-made disasters to which public services may be vulnerable. This course also explains emergency planning and management and the regulatory systems, documents, and directives that guide disaster response. Response factors, such as hazard control zones, resources, and responder safety are also discussed. Recovery considerations, such as funding assistance and demobilization, are also explained.

It is a one stop shop for us. I like the freedom of adding things that are important to us (advertising new and big events). It is easy to use as an administrator. When visiting EMI or other states, and I log in, I always get comments on the content and details of the site.
