Summer Online Course 2022:
Disaster & Emergency Management

Dates:  July 18- August 18, 2022


Total Credits: 3


Hours: 30

Wildfires, floods, COVID-19, terror attacks, and earthquakes are only a partial list of emergencies and disasters which have occurred in recent years in many countries around the world. Some countries had even experienced more than one major disaster. Managing an emergency or a disaster is based on preparedness and mitigation actions (before the event), response capabilities (during the event), and recovery efforts (after the event) to rebuild the area and the affected community. The course will expose students to principles in emergency and disaster management at the local, national and international levels with a distinct focus on human behavior during disasters, risk communications, sheltering and protection, logistics, and technologies. The learning methods will include expert lectures, case study analysis, and emergency simulation.

The course will take place twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays, from 5:00 pm-7:45 pm Haifa Time (10:00 am- 12:45 pm EST).
