DISASTER PREPAREDNESS, EMERGENCY RESPONSE, AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

An upper-level aviation course, Airport Safety and Security, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha was developed utilizing research into curriculum needs in this area, including discussions with industry and government experts. The research revealed components for inclusion, such as airport and ramp safety, Occupational Safety and Health Act requirements, risk assessment and management, disaster preparedness, emergency response plans, coordination among authorities, crisis communication, and passenger rights. The research also revealed that the structure of such a course lends itself to a seminar format and requires many areas of expertise. The result is a comprehensive curriculum design which provides a model for ready implementation in collegiate aviation education programs.
