Emergency Management as a Career

I was recently asked if I would post some information assembled for the Arizona State University (ASU) online emergency management program for those who might want to know more about emergency management careers.  The infographic they sent provides a great snapshot of emergency management career opportunities.

From their outreach office: “When different agencies work together to manage a disaster, someone has to coordinate their activities to ensure things run smoothly.  This is where emergency management specialists are crucial.  From helping reduce vulnerability to hazards to helping communities manage disasters effectively.  Below is a look at emergency management as a career.” Information on their program can be found at https://asuonline.asu.edu/.
