The Disaster Management for Electric Power Systems course is designed to provide training to electric systems managers, operators, supervisors, and employees to prepare for, protect against, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters affecting electric power facilities and systems. The course introduces the various natural, technological, and civil hazards to which electric power systems may be vulnerable and the potential effects the hazards may induce. Measures to reduce risk are discussed along with the importance of integrating the full range of capabilities and emergency response organizations when developing a response plan.
