EDM-300 Concepts of Emergency Management

Concepts of Emergency Management addresses the historical background of emergency management in the United States including significant laws and policies such as Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5 (HSPD-5), Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8 (HSPD-8), the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, and the Stafford Act. The course examines all phases of the emergency management cycle (preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery) as well as various Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approaches to threats and responses, including the all-hazards approach and the Incident Command System (ICS). Other aspects of emergency response, such as emergency support functions, are also addressed.
