HSEP 601 – Emergency Management

January 11, 2023

An advanced analytical examination of emergency management factors. These include mitigation (designing programs to reduce the risk to vulnerable targets/infrastructure), preparedness (response planning and training, particularly interagency and intergovernmental agreements on joint operations and burden sharing), response (actual operations during and after a terrorist attack or natural disaster) and recovery (maintaining services in the immediate aftermath and long term). Through various case studies, students will investigate the strengths and weaknesses of the current practice of emergency management in the U.S.
