EMGT 6602 - Principles and Practices of Hazard Mitigation


Prerequisite: EMGT 6601  This course will provide the student with an understanding of the principles and practice of hazard mitigation in the United States at the local, state, regional, and federal levels of governance, emphasizing the importance of avoiding or preventing future and recurring losses of life and damage to public and private property. Based on this understanding, a further objective of the course is to familiarize students with the tools, techniques, resources, programs, intergovernmental relationships, and broader social context involved in planning for and implementing hazard mitigation. Case studies, exercises, and discussions will be used to encourage critical review of the philosophy and principles of emergency management.
