G393 Mitigation for Emergency Managers

August 22, 2017August 24, 2017

This course provides training in how to perform mitigation activities fundamental to reducing and eliminating long-term risk from hazards. It also addresses the important roles of the emergency program manager (or other local government representative) in mitigation: motivator, coordinator, and monitor in local implementation of the National Mitigation Strategy.

Prerequisite: Recommended FEMA’s Independent Study (IS) 393.a course, Introduction to Hazard Mitigation. Participants are required to bring a copy of their community’s mitigation plan to class, if available. If the jurisdiction does not have a mitigation plan, or the plan is incomplete, the participant should bring the community’s hazard analysis or any other parts of the plan that may be completed.

Purpose: The course is designed to enable the non-technical emergency worker to acquire skills in the use of mitigation.

Target Audience: Local and State government emergency program managers, other emergency management staff, and other local government employees responsible for mitigation.
