Disaster and Emergency Management focuses on preventing, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from specific hazard events. However, its standardized approach often fails to address isolated, marginalized, or culturally distinct communities.
NAIT's Emergency Management in Remote, Rural, and Distinct Communities certificate will prepare you to:
• Develop strong plans and partnerships to address the community's needs
• Demonstrate respect for the community's inherent abilities and vulnerabilities
• Understand community priorities, values, and nuances for comprehensive and appropriate hazard and risk assessment
• Develop and deploy strategies that are relevant and respectful to the specific needs of those communities
Disaster and Emergency Management work becomes more efficient when collaboration increases, leading to an improvement in overall individual and community resiliency. This certificate focuses on Indigenous, rural, and remote communities and addresses sub-groups within communities that are marginalized due to race, religion, and/or social norms.
