EM 230 Introduction to Emergency Management

The potential for human suffering and devastation in a disaster makes it critical for emergency program managers and related professionals to understand fully the nature of emergency management and their relationship to it.

This course introduced in 1998 replaces the 1990 version. This course is different from the FEMA Independent Study Program course added in 2003.

Introduction of Emergency Management is intended to provide information that will enable persons just entering the profession or expanding their roles to have the ability to work with the main emergency management issues. The primary purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the characteristics, functions, and resources of an integrated system and how various emergency management services work together in a system of resources and capabilities.

Course content is geared for all persons involved or potentially involved in emergency management: elected officials, public service personnel, managers, health professionals, engineers and a wide range of others.
