The Hazard Mitigation (HM) Disaster Operations courses are designed to provide an introduction to the functional organization and activities of the HM department. These courses are not meant to prepare new employees for their disaster assignment but rather provide an orientation to the HM department and its important relationships.

The course objectives include describing the major functions and products of HM Insurance, referring to key authorities, programs, and resources related to HM Insurance, identifying key people and organizations for collaborations, and identifying “red flags” that require special handling or additional collaboration.

The primary audience for these courses are HM Insurance Specialists, HM Insurance Specialist Experts, HM Insurance Crew Leaders, and HM Floodplain Management staff.
