CRJS 4302 - Critical Incidents and Cross-Agency Coordination♦


(5 cr.) What happens when disasters occur, natural or otherwise, and the agencies that respond operate independent of one another? Students in this course have the opportunity to examine the fallout of such events to learn effective ways to manage critical incidents, avoiding errors of the past, thus helping to prevent widespread harm to communities. They learn about the development of broad-based contingency planning and the development of strategies, policies, and procedures for cross-agency coordination. Through practical exercises and simulations, students sharpen their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills as they learn ways to develop models of cross-agency coordination that anticipate prototypical critical incident responses.

  (Prerequisite(s): CRJS 1001.)
