Minor in Emergency Management

Natural or man-made disasters can strike at any time and anywhere. They take many forms—a hurricane, an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. Disasters can build over days or weeks, or hit suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of people face disasters and their consequences.
