• Risk management concepts and application
• Emergency management – with a huge emphasis on planning
• Legal issues – a basic understanding of applicable laws and constitutional authorities
• International relations
• Cyber and technological issues
• Social psychology – a focus on interagency relationship building and how to get the variety of players involved to cooperate.
