Course Dates
74031 2021-08-23 to 2021-12-11 Homeland security and emergency management (HSEM) are heavily regulated by US Code, executive agency guidelines and various federal and state laws and regulations. Participants in emergency planning and execution, are, themselves, subject to myriad laws and regulations while executing their response functions but also in the way they coordinate and interact with other responders whose authorities may differ from their own. This course examines the applicable statutory, regulatory and policy aspects regulating HSEM. It begins with an overview of the Constitution, separation of powers and federalism- the foundation that defines the legal basis for federal, state, tribal and local action before, during and after emergency and contingency management. With this background, the course focuses on relevant statutes such as the Stafford Act, the Economy Act Insurrection Act, Posse Comitatus Act, and those relating to governmental and individual liability/defenses while performing emergency and contingency management.
