3 hours
This course deals in risk management theory and practice relative to strategic and operational planning in both the private and public sectors. The risk management process is developed in great detail throughout this course by generating an on-site risk assessment evaluation, utilizing the implementation of safety-orientated programs and countermeasures designed to assist in the reduction of risk levels. Students will examine the management of risk associated with a range of conditions and events, which include, but not limited to fire and fire safety, crime and terrorism, public safety deficiencies, hazardous and toxic materials, and natural disasters. Site assessment case studies are intended to familiarize and better prepare students for the Public Safety Administration capstone project by developing a greater sense of the practical application of these concepts.
