EMG 283 Practical Applications of Incident Management (3 credits)

The complexity of incident management is exacerbated when incidents deal with protecting lives and property. Large incidents typically managed by Emergency Managers require not only the didactic aspect of incident management education, but require the ability to use many principles taught in most emergency management courses. The purpose of this course is to allow a student to demonstrate an understanding of Emergency Operations plans and to apply the National Incident Management System principles and practices to a large, complex incident. Students will be required to research resource needs and the financial implications of decisions while using the Incident Command System.
