    Question about planning and emergency management [was: Question]

    Hey Guys,

    I had a question and i wasn't sure where else to ask it besides here. Sorry if its a little off the city planning topic, but i was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction as to the name or area of a career that you would be a planner of infrastructure after disaster reliefs?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    Cam

    North Texas State U has a masters program in Public Admin with a specialization in emergency management. Or are you looking more at the engineering side of things?

    Moderator note:
    Hi, Cam. I know you are new here, so I'll help you out with a couple of things. First, please use descriptive thread titles rather than vague ones. I've edited the thread title to help you get responses. Second, try to find the forum that most closely approximates the subject area and post it there (and there only). If you aren't certain (and when you have PM privileges) you can contact a Moderator for assistance if you aren't sure where to post a thread. Thanks, welcome to Cyburbia, and carry on.

    You can start self study about ESF-14 Long-Term Community Recovery:

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
