Summary

The first comprehensive resource on disaster response created for emergency management programs, this volume examines theoretical aspects while also addressing practical concerns related to creating an operational response plan as part of a multiphase disaster program. Command and control and interagency coordination are covered, as are the mechanisms of federal response, including the role of FEMA and the military. It also provides a complete chronology of events that need to occur in a response and explains why the flexible emergent approach is the preferred methodology. Each chapter contains review questions and references. Qualifying instructors can access a wealth of ancillary materials.
