    I'm guessing this is more of an EMS/Rescue/Fire operational degree. I imagine you'd use it to work more on the logistics end of providing emergency management resources.

    No, this is probably not a medical degree of any kind and I doubt it would qualify you to do any patient care. Also, I think the degree of choice for people pursuing emergency management as a career would probably be an MPH.

    I think it's more like something you'd get if you want an entry-level job with FEMA.

    Why not ask the director of the program?
