Recently launched, EMPSI is committed to maintain and extend its leadership through education, applied research and the development of best practices in emergency management, public health and safety. The Institute will bring together experts and stakeholders representing all sectors who will form an integrated network of collaborators. It will be driven by the adaptive changing needs of the community both locally and globally; fostering leadership, building internal and external capacity in emergency management, public health and safety and enhancing organizational and community resilience. We will provide leading edge curriculum through multiple / flexible pathways and formats developed for the needs of industry and community.
We are pleased to offer for this Spring the following Continued Education courses.
The CRHNet creates an environment in which the hazards research, education and emergency management practitioner communities can effectively share knowledge and innovative approaches that reduce disaster vulnerability. Reducing Risk through Partnerships calls attention to the need for creating partnerships among academics, the hazards research education, and emergency management practitioner communities, across all sectors.
The network seeks to enhance the understanding of, and provide tools for, the development of comprehensive programs to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from all types of disasters - natural, technological or human-induced.
