Course Description:

This course integrates the strategic planning of an organization or municipal entity with the risk assessment and mitigation process. Risk analysis and hazard mitigation can be applied to a wide range of functions and activities. Several special applications, however, are uniquely significant to organizations that, in the course of delivering their services to the public, cope with high-risk situations as an integral component of their missions. It is a fundamental tenet of risk management that it is an ongoing, evolving, regularly refreshed and continuously improved process. Students will develop an understanding of the complex evolution of risk management as both a concept and a physical fact.

Prerequisites: Introduction to Emergency Management or study or experiential background within the areas of business continuity planning, community and human services planning or information systems.
