Community Planning for Hazards Online Course

The Community Planning for Hazards online course includes 3 units with 3.5 hours of video. Each unit includes reading materials, case studies, and engaging instruction from planning leaders, practitioners, and researchers. In this online course, you will hear first-person perspectives about strategic approaches other Texas communities have used to link risk management with their ongoing community planning and vision. The art of good planning is about injecting long-term considerations into near-term actions. Communities that integrate hazard mitigation principles and factor in long-term risks into their existing plans stand to make their communities more resilient and less prone to disasters.

This course has been approved for 4 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for Certified Floodplain Managers (CFMs).
