Disaster Management

As you build upon your knowledge of crisis intervention and prevention, you will begin to recognize the extent to which communities can prepare for disaster-related events. You will also gain greater insight into the planning efforts involved in such events, obtain a broader view of diverse crisis situations, and acknowledge the unique challenges found within various community settings.

To explore the nuances of disaster preparedness, in this assignment you will examine crisis-related current events and peer-reviewed research that cover issues associated with military (and first responder) settings, schools, workplaces, and the natural environment.
