To foster multi-level partnership, the course emphasizes the problem-solving aspects of disaster operations as well as associated coordination requirements. This course will also discuss the use of the National Response Plan, Emergency Management’s place in the National Preparedness Goal, and current trends in disaster mitigation efforts.
