CJ555 Major Incident Response Management

The course prepares learners to plan and lead in emergency management incidents. For this course, all references to emergency management practices are based on those formed in the United States. Emergency management has evolved over the last two decades to encompass not only natural disasters, but also manmade calamities. Law enforcement leaders must quickly determine the scope and severity of disasters to ensure they can respond in ways that minimize danger to both the public and critical personnel responding to the event. The course discusses full-spectrum threat responses at the federal, state, and local levels to increase multi-level preparedness and integrated response.  Learners will earn new or validate existing FEMA training in emergency response.
