CEMHS Initiatives In 2010, CEMHS received funding from the California Emergency Management Agency to Develop: “The California Emergency Management (EM) and Homeland Security (HS) Education and Training Strategic Initiative.”
CEMHS Strategic Initiative The Strategic Initiative sketches an outline and blueprint to guide and develop a “vertical track” of seamless, standardized, and portable Emergency Management and Homeland Security education and training programs at all levels of education statewide.
The Strategic Initiative These outlines or blueprints take the form of “templates” and “best practices” for a replicatable EM-HS model curriculum for utilization by campuses interested in developing and offering these programs and courses.
