Union Institute & University is celebrating first responders during Safety Stand Down, June 18-24, 2017. UI&U’s major in Emergency Services Management focuses on emergency and disaster management, homeland security, and critical incident management.
“Union Institute & University is proud to play a role in teaching first responders to effectively handle a variety of dangerous situations,” said James Babcock, UI&U Professor and Associate CJM/ESM Chair. “Graduates of the major in Emergency Services Management will be able to solve administrative problems, fine-tune strategic plans, enhance human resource potential, increase productivity, and address internal organizational issues.”
The UI&U Emergency Services Management major provides career ladder opportunities in the fields of firefighting, paramedic, police officer, US border patrol agent, emergency management, fish and game warden, FBI and Homeland Security, and federal air marshal professions.
Safety Stand Down is a joint initiative of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC). The event is coordinated by the IAFC Safety, Health and Survival Section and the NVFC, and is supported by national and international fire and emergency service organizations as well as health and safety-related organizations and agencies. The goal of both organizations is to reduce the number of preventable injuries and deaths in the fire and emergency services. (Source: Safety Stand Down)
