Paramedic Captain, Philadelphia Fire Department

“The program has helped me gain a better understanding of the incident command system, emergency operations centers, and other aspects and agencies that assist me with my responsibilities in the Fire Department. Gaining a clear, functional knowledge of emergency planning and management prepared me to be a better leader within my organization and on large-scale incidents or events. Because of the impact that the program has made on my subject knowledge and leadership skills, I highly recommend this program to future leaders of emergency response across all disciplines.”
