EM 280 Public Policy in Emergency Management

COURSE GOAL

This course has one basic goal-to increase the public official's ability to establish and execute public policy in emergency management.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The course goal will be achieved through the accomplishment of six objectives. After completing this course and reviewing the content included, the participants will know how to do the following:

1. Use hazard analysis to establish policy based on review of community hazards, resources, and codes;

2. Analyze the effect of policy on their specific emergency management roles, and use policy analysis in the development of new policy;

3. Use role analysis to describe the interacting roles and relationships which occur in a community during a disaster;

4. Analyze the effect of public policy on the community before, during, and after a simulated emergency;

5. Develop and disseminate a statement which describes public policy formulated under simulated emergency conditions; and

6. In a simulated news conference, demonstrate the ability to reassure the community that an emergency situation is being dealt with effectively.

Public Policy in Emergency Management, released in July 1990, is an eight-hour course for public officials.
