Course Description:

This course is designed to give basic concepts and planning steps to those new to the field of emergency management so that they may apply planning discipline and skills to challenges in their jobs. The course content includes Emergency Management Planning doctrine and steps to take to accomplish writing plans and using them to deal with special events, which are common challenges for all jurisdictions.

The content also derives from the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 101, Developing and Maintaining State, Territorial, Tribal and Local Government Emergency Plans, and its six-step planning process and inclusive whole community philosophy. Likewise, doctrine from the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 201, Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA), is included in the course. Special event planning is then explained in the course, and table group activities to analyze plans for special events are conducted.

It is mandatory that the participant complete all 16 hours of this course to receive full credit. Anything less will result in the participant’s need to re-register for another course and start from the beginning.

This course is preceded by the L0102 Science of Disaster course and both will run in the same week. Students are encouraged to sign up for both the L0102 and L0103 courses together. Typically, students take the L0101 Foundations of Emergency Management course first, but the Basic Academy courses can be taken in any order.

Course Goal:

The goals of this course are to promote effective emergency management planning practices and to enhance planning skills through application exercises.


If a participant is taking this course as part of the Academy, then he or she should take E0101, Foundations of Emergency Management, first (but not required). If a participant is taking this course on its own for its planning information and not in fulfillment of the Academy requirements, there are no prerequisites.

EMI awards 1.6 CEUs for completion of this course.
