Emergency Management specialists coordinate disaster or crisis management activities. Emergency Management training will consist of
preparing emergency plans and procedures for responding to natural, technological, or terrorism events, and coordinating consequence
management after the disaster.
A degree or certificate in Emergency Management is designed to enhance the capabilities of federal, state, local, and tribal government
officials, volunteer organizations, and the public and private sectors to minimize the impact of natural or human-caused disasters on the
public. The courses are structured to meet the needs of this diverse audience with an emphasis on how the various elements work together in
