PL 84-99 Online Course


Effective 31 December 2020, ADOBE ended support for Adobe Flash Player. The decision to end support for Flash Player was made by Adobe due to the diminished usage and availability of better, more secure options such as HTML5. Browser companies are now removing the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, thereby affecting our existing media player. As we work to update our media player, you may experience trouble launching a course or have questions concerning a particular course offering. Please use the link below to contact us.

Public Law 84-99, or the Flood Control and Coastal Emergency Act, is USACE’s basic authority to provide for emergency activities in support of State and Local governments prior to, during, and after a flood event. 

Under P.L. 84-99, USACE can provide both emergency technical and direct assistance in response to flood and coastal storms such as hurricanes and nor’easters.  In addition, USACE can assist if there is deemed a flood threat from damage caused by earthquakes to flood reduction projects. The assistance must be requested by the State and must be supplemental to State and Local actions including resources and capabilities, and National Guard assets

This self-paced course includes four modules: PL 84-99 Introduction and Overview, PL 84-99 Emergency Operations Overview, PL 84-99 EOC Operations Overview, and PL 84-99 Emergency Water. It is a pre-requisite for USACE students before attending an in-residence PL 84-99 course.
