This course is designed to enhance the Texas emergency management professional’s insight and knowledge of the state’s planning processes, state planning standards, planning resources, and key information in the development of basic emergency management plans and functional annexes. The course provides opportunities for students to work as a team to create effective planning documents that meet state planning standards, and to utilize the plans through tabletop exercises. Additionally, TDEM planning staff members will be on hand to provide emergency management planners with one-to-one and small-group assistance with the students’ jurisdictional plans.
Target Audience: Elected officials, emergency management coordinators and planners, department heads, risk managers, operations officers, and representatives of volunteer groups active in disasters.
Note: This course augments the FEMA Professional Development Series IS-235 Emergency Planning course, available online at http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/courseOverview.aspx?code=IS-235.b
