Grassroots Participatory Disaster Management

Course Format: Online / Virtual / E-learning
School/Trainer: Colorado State University OnlinePlus

The occurrence of disasters appears to be on the rise, and despite several technological advancements, they still cause major damage and destruction to our societies. In order to minimize these damages and save lives, disaster management plans must adopt a participatory strategy with an increasing focus on the grassroots level. Small initiatives, such as creating awareness and educating vulnerable communities on simple and easy disaster management techniques, may mitigate the conditions that exacerbate disasters and help reduce losses.

Therefore, there is a need for a participatory and broad-based approach in order to increase the scope of disaster management and utilize local knowledge and means of communication and organization. Instead of looking at crises from the delivery end as outsiders, we need to focus on understanding the requirements of the sufferer, the victim, the community and design disaster management plans accordingly. The course mainly focuses on victim-centric, micro-level planning in disaster management and predominantly discusses the techniques that are useful at the individual/family/community level. It focuses on actions to be taken during and after the occurrence of disasters, rather than focusing on the mitigation.

Disaster/Emergency Management

Course Format: Online / Virtual / E-learning
School/Trainer: Skillsoft

Over the past decade, emergency management and business continuity planning have been recognized as necessary to continued operational success in both the public and private sectors. Key to this was the development and widespread use of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs (NFPA 1600). The NFPA 1600 standard is a description of the basic criteria for a comprehensive program that addresses disaster recovery, emergency management, and business continuity. NFPA 1600 is considered by many to be an excellent benchmark for continuity and emergency planners in both the public and private sectors. The standard addresses methodologies for defining and identifying risks and vulnerabilities and provides planning guidelines that address stabilizing the restoration of the physical infrastructure, protecting the health and safety of personnel, and crisis communications procedures. This course will provide you with an understanding of the basic criteria for developing a comprehensive program that addresses disaster recovery and emergency management in accordance with the NFPA 1600 standard.
