This course is a survey of selected legal issues that typically arise during emergencies. The goal of the course is to enhance the ability of state, territorial, tribal and local governments, emergency managers and planners, first responders, and VOADs to identify potential legal issues that can arise during a disaster so that necessary adjustments to planning, policies or procedures can be developed prior to a disaster. The instructor-led, 8-hour course is divided into five modules; planning, evacuation, shelters, out-of-state volunteers, and federal financial assistance & reimbursement. At the end of the course, participants will be able to identify the most common legal issues associated with these issues and understand general procedures to avoid the associated liability.
