Community-Specific IEMCs place emphasis on a specific jurisdiction’s risks, response capability, Core Capabilities, and short-term recovery issues. They are tailored to fit the jurisdictions and are based on a selected hazard scenario. Course methodologies include classroom instruction, group planning sessions, and exercises that allow for structured decision-making in a learning environment. A key outcome of this IEMC is to provide participants with the awareness and skills to carry out emergency plans, policies, and procedures related to disaster response and assist with making the transition from response activities to short-term recovery.
