Summary

Supplying an understanding of social vulnerability and its interplay with emergency management, this book provides information on garnering information to adapt emergency plans for emergency situations. It includes a historical analysis of how disaster monies have been spent as well as how it has been allocated so that it didn't mitigate future events. The authors discuss how harnessing local community intelligence from information centers; such as non-profits and social service providers, community vulnerabilities, planning gaps, and social strata, and leveraging organizational capacity will ensure that emergency plans remain living documents that are easily adaptable.
