Disaster and Emergency Management Field Growing
As “big heat and big rain” plague the Midwest, the potential for disasters and emergencies increases, and so does the demand for disaster and emergency management services which help organizations prepare for, cope with, and recover from disasters. Disaster- and emergency-related jobs are increasing in both the public and private sector, ranging from disaster response consultants to specialists working for governments, private companies, or hospitals. Suburban community colleges have noted the opportunity, offering programs geared at training students in the field.
