Prevention, Preparedness, and Mitigation

The Institute of Emergency Services and Homeland Security blends the time-tested strengths of existing programs into a single entity that promotes research and enhances education and training across areas sharing a common theme of regional and national preparedness 

IESHS supports the preparation of individuals who are directly responsible for security and emergency response at local, regional, and national levels, including; 

  • Fire and emergency medical services 
  • Law enforcement 
  • Emergency management in both the public and private sectors 

In addition, IESHS supports emergency preparedness of citizens at the local and state levels as well as internationally and promotes student and faculty research and travel to achieve its mission and goals.
