Course: MGT 403 Access and Functional Needs Preparedness Planning for Rural Communities

The purpose of this course is to ensure the safety of older adults, particularly those residing in assisted-living and nursing homes, and people with access and functional needs during a crisis event by increasing knowledge among community emergency planners in the area of pre-planning and preparedness.

This course focuses on the preparedness phase of emergency management.
