Purpose:
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Emergency Management Program. The course includes studies of the policy and guidance associated with the USACE emergency management authority, Public Law 84-99 (PL 84-99).

Description:
Through lectures, case studies, discussions and exercises, the student receives training in the following areas: USACE emergency responsibilities involving all-hazard natural disaster preparedness, Advance Measures; emergency operations (flood operations and Post Flood Response); rehabilitation of flood damage reduction projects damaged by floods or storms; protection or repair of federally authorized shore protection works damaged by coastal storm; and provision of emergency water supplies needed as a result of drought or contaminated sources.

Prerequisites:
District and MSC emergency managers must approve nominations. In general, nominees should be: (a) emergency management personnel; (b) functional or technical staff who are currently assigned to/or working in positions with responsibilities related to emergency management, flood damage reduction projects, inspections and maintenance, rehabilitation of damaged flood risk reduction projects and emergency response operations. Attendance by other personnel will be determined based on space available in the course. All emergency management personnel should have this course within the first year of their assignment to the emergency management organization and every three years thereafter as a refresher. Program Manager for PL 84-99 will have final approval authority over all nominations, based on the recommendation(s) of district and division emergency managers/regional contingency operations managers. As many skills and competencies are involved in planning and conducting emergency operations, there is no specific job series requirement to attend this course. ADD: All 089 personnel (new career field) are included in these requirements.
