Journal of Rural Emergency Management (ISSN 2573-2277 [online]) is published two times a year on behalf of the Institute for Rural Emergency Management by the University of Central Missouri, with offices in Warrensburg, MO 64093, USA.
The Institute for Rural Emergency Management (IREM) at the University of Central Missouri was established in June 2005 to meet a demonstrated need for technical assistance in rural communities. UCM is the only university in the U.S. to create a community outreach center focused on the emergency management needs of rural America, which are distinct from the needs of urban and suburban communities.
