Description:This is an eight-hour awareness-level course to provide emergency managers, first responders, and campus officials with a basic understanding of the latest knowledge of the best practices of hazardous weather preparedness activities for academic campus communities. This awareness-level course will fulfill the goals of the “whole community” approach to emergency management by reaching a broad sector of the community. Multiple core capabilities will be addressed, with particular emphasis on “public information and warning” and “planning.” Participants who represent sectors such as mass care services, health and social services, operational communications, critical transportation, and planning would further expand the discussions in this course to other corresponding core capabilities.
