This course provides an overview of special operations in emergency management (EM). The emergency management field is ever evolving and requires integration of operations not traditionally considered core EM functions. These functions include integration with the intelligence community, joint information centers, pre-planned special events, critical infrastructure protection, and inter- and intra-state mutual aid. This course explores these and other critical special operations that EM communities undertake. Upon successful completion of the course the student will have an understanding of how EM integrates with these functions.
