Emergency Management:

Area of Emphasis

or Certificate

Emergency Response CycleThe risk of hazardous events is increasing dramatically as a consequence of our growing ability to alter our environment.

Experts project that emergencies causing catastrophic loss of life, property and resources will occur more frequently in the future. Devastation and losses from a disaster can be lessened when businesses, emergency personnel and governments put organized, developed plans in place. Such planning requires skills in budgeting, administration, management and emergency operation procedures.
