Course Description

Primary Core Capability: Risk and Disaster Resilience Assessment

The purpose of this course is to help prevent, reduce, or mitigate the potential consequences of a domestic terrorist attack, natural catastrophe, or other emergency using all-hazards scenarios to determine site-specific consequences and their impacts to a jurisdiction.
The course will assist local emergency responders and stakeholders in identifying critical infrastructure sectors that may be at risk in their jurisdiction and aid them in the development of mitigation strategies that can lessen the jurisdictional impacts.
