The Emergency Management Institute is pleased to announce the newly revised independent study course, IS-394.a Protecting your Home or Small Business from Disaster. The course replaces IS-394 Mitigation for Homeowners.
The purpose of this course is to provide a foundation of knowledge that will enable participants to:
- Describe different types of natural disasters
- Describe hazards that pose a risk to their home or small business
- Explain how protective measures can reduce or eliminate long-term risks to their home and personal property from hazards and their effects
- Explain how protective measures for small businesses secure people, business property, and building structures and prevent business loss from a natural disaster
The primary audience for IS-394.a, like its predecessor, is small business owners, homeowners, and individual citizens. It is presented in a non-technical format and includes protective measures that can reduce the negative consequences of disasters on homes or small businesses.
