Wildland firefighting, emergency and disaster management, and public safety networks are studied to uncover what each network form does well and not so well. Those networks are also used to provide a general management framework that other crisis management networks will find useful. The book's five principles identify "ingredients" necessary to form and maintain relationships of multiple organizations in pursuit of public health, safety, and security.
Public Crisis Management is useful for both the academic and practitioner communities as so many key business, government, and international decisions rest on the cooperation and coordination of more than one organization to resolve modern problems.
