Course Description

Emergency and Disaster Preparedness for Local Governments

In a local emergency or disaster, are you prepared to serve? In the wake of the fires, floods, and mudslides that have recently devastated communities across California, it has become evident that we need to better prepare to ensure the best outcomes when facing natural disasters. This class will provide a foundation for students who plan to serve as municipal staff, elected officials, or lead community-based organizations to understand the decisions that must be made and how to best equip and prepare the communities for such events.
