Overview

Natural and man-made disasters and emergencies affect millions of people every year. Whether it is a typhoon threatening a coastal community, a terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, or a hazardous chemical spill at a local school, organizations and governments require efficient and immediate mobilization. Effective emergency response planning demands coordination of numerous entities, including governmental agencies, response organizations, and community support resources. This book outlines the essential roles of corporate and municipal managers and demonstrates the importance of their relationships with federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as public and private community sectors. Author Paul Erickson, one of the leading experts in the field, focuses on proactively planning for emergencies, particularly in the recognition and advance coordination of response to incidents instead of simply implementing emergency measures. EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLANNING encompasses all of the basic elements of comprehensive emergency planning that emergency planners and response personnel will find essential.
