All new collection of articles recently published in leading publications in the public safety and emergency management field fields; and nearly all were written by highly-respected first-responders (as opposed to academics). The new contributions reflect the changes, best practices, lessons learned, and future challenges in homeland security since the last edition. This collection addresses the four stages of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
Recent tragic events including school, workplace, and military episodes of violence, combined with significant public health fears surrounding new flu viruses, are just a few examples of why those charged with protecting our community need up-to-date resources and information to guide them. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security has recently made some changes under the new administration and new information as it pertains to local governments is included in this collection.
