Emergency Management

Not accepting new students effective Summer 2017
Emergency Management is the coordinating agency which works closely with all public safety agencies, (such as fire, EMS, and law enforcement) to provide a full, comprehensive response to a wide variety of emergency or disaster situations.

Emergency Management is deeply involved in emergency preparedness to identify needed resources; education to better prepare private citizens to care for themselves; mitigation to attempt to prevent a disaster or lessen its impact when it does occur; and recovery efforts to help individuals and communities return to “normal” following a disaster or emergency. Emergency Management supports and assists first responders during an emergency or disaster, sometimes serving as an Incident Commander.
