MGT 405 Mobilizing Faith Based Community Organizations in Preparing for Disaster
This 8-hour, planning and management-level course focuses on ingratiating faith-based organizations into disaster planning. This course emphasizes grassroots mobilization and coordination efforts as a means of engaging all faith communities, thereby reaching those marginalized communities most vulnerable to disaster, most frequently excluded from the planning process, and ultimately, most difficult to aid in recovery. This course introduces vital emergency management concepts to FBCO leaders, many of whom will have had no prior experience with emergency management and also seeks to educate emergency managers and first responders about the critical role FBCOs can play in strengthening preparedness.
Prerequisites: IS-100.b - Introduction to the Incident Command System (ICS)
Target Audience: Faith-based community organization (FBCO) representatives, religious charities, management-level emergency managers, and first responders from small and rural communities, Salvation Army, the American Red Cross, churches (both affiliated and unaffiliated), temples, synagogues, mosques, and NGOs
