Emergency Management

Theory, Principles and Fundamentals of Hazards, Disaster, and U.S. Emergency Management

 

Course Overview

This course provides an introduction to the phenomenon of hazards, disasters, and U.S. emergency management. The United States is becoming more hazardous, as is our vulnerability to those hazards. There is no magic that will make these hazards disappear. There are, however, a variety of actions that can be taken to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. This falls within the purview of a newly developing discipline and profession of emergency management.


Course Objectives include

- To know and discuss the range of hazards and disasters within the United States.
- To explain the increasing risk and vulnerability of the U.S. population to hazards as well as some of the more important factors bearing on this increase.
- To understand the fundamentals of U.S. emergency management.
- To appreciate the role of the Federal, State, and local governments in emergency management within the United States.
- To create an awareness of current trends, issues, and problems in U.S. emergency management.
