Professional Development Curriculum

  • In most communities, the strength of the emergency management system is related directly to the skills of the local emergency management professionals. Protection of lives and property begins on the local level where the emergency impact is felt immediately. Prompt, effective response and speedy recovery is the result of planning done over the years. The creation of a viable emergency management system, one that can tap needed resources from both public and private agencies, can be credited to those individuals who took leadership roles in their communities.
  • Course initiatives for instilling management and state-of- the-art skills for the training cadre and for developing additional expanded professional capabilities are now available. This cadre is at the core of training and a professional, competent emergency management workforce.
