Emergency Operations Training Center
The Emergency Management program’s educational coursework has been developed for each of three key concepts: hazard, risk, and disaster. The program component for hazard and risk (risk management) consists of a framework that explores four states in assessment and management, including Risk Assessment, Control Analysis, Strategy Section and Implementation and Evaluation. In the case of disaster, the students study the different temporal stages in a disaster cycle, including Mitigation or Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery. Located in the Harrington Building, the Emergency Operations Training Center provides a teaching environment that simulates real EM Operations Centers.
