Students will learn the structure and components of ESS, including key agencies and common issues that arise during emergencies. Students will also study a range of activities and processes that are commonly used to mitigate human suffering and minimize the effects of the emergency or disaster on those impacted. Emphasis is also placed on establishing effective processes for registration and inquiry, as well as best practices in key service areas such as clothing, food, and shelter.
