How can you prevent or reduce the effects of such occurrences? By planning ahead.

From the Back Cover:

Natural and manmade 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. Emergency Response Planning 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 planing for emergencies instead of just implementing emergency measures.
