Cracking FEMA's Books on Emergencies
 
Waiting out tropical storm Sandy (will the power stay on?) is a good time to remind communicators of the independent study program offered online by the Federal Emergency Management Program (FEMA). You can brush up on a host of crisis-related subjects, or gain insight into new ones, via FEMA's Emergency Management Institute.

There are more than 100 courses you can take on-line, starting, if you haven't had prior insturction in crisis communication, with "Fundamentals of Emergency Management." Or how about "Community Hurricane Preparedness?" The Internet is bringing such helpful tools to our desktops these days; FEMA is a top-notch response organization and these courses provide invaluable insights into how federal responders, and the people who work with them, do what needs to be done in emergencies. Brush up on crisis response, or learn it outright. No charge but your time; you'll be better equipped for the experience.
