Annapolis Office of Emergency Management Internship


The Summer 2022 OEM Internship application is now available.



Internship Details

The Midshipman participating in this internship will:

  • Conduct a limited scope, independent research project in support of the City of Annapolis Office of Emergency Management (OEM). The actual project is TBD and may not be fully developed until the start of the internship due to the evolving needs of OEM and candidate interests. The intern may be expected to meet with Instructor Davies occasionally over the final 4-6 weeks of the Spring Semester to prepare, as required.
  • Be exposed to challenges associated with disaster planning, response, and management.   Emergency management is a collaborative and interdisciplinary effort that requires detailed planning, an understanding of all possible threats, and the ability to think critically and act effectively in a high pressure environment. The participant will shadow OEM personal in meetings and activities related to emergency management throughout the internship (in addition to the assigned project).
