DISASTER MANAGEMENT: PREPARING FOR THE WORST

In an era of unprecedented natural disasters and terrorist attacks, emergency preparedness has become of paramount concern for those people on the front lines at all national, state, county and local levels, both private and public.

The key to successful response and recovery is planning and preparedness in order to minimize loss of time, money and, most importantly, lives. Veronica T. White has been there.

As a New Orleans city official, Ms. White discovered firsthand how to cope with disaster in the aftermath of Katrina and how to navigate the Byzantine worlds of government agencies tasked with aiding in the recovery efforts-in particular, FEMA.

How to Maximize FEMA Funding After a Natural Disaster is critical for all those committed to emergency management: government employees, emergency workers, university educators, consultants, environmental recovery firms and students studying public health or environment management.

    DO NOT BUY

    This woman IS a disaster. She is totally incompetent in her position in New Orleans and couldn't help anyone find their way out of a paper bag. Please ask anyone in New Orleans what we think of her before you buy this book.
