From the Back Cover:

An all-hazards, multidisciplinary approach to emergencymanagement

Most emergency management texts focus on the short-term responseto specific threats. This book suggests that it is time for adifferent approach, one that is supported by social science and bynew national standards for emergency management programs. Thisapproach is based on the concept that emergency management is adistributed process, one that must be collectively performed by thecommunity. Emergency management must be integrated with othercommunity goals and as such, must be perceived as adding value tothe community by helping the community manage overall risk.

This community-wide approach also holds implications for theemergency manager. Instead of a technical expert on emergencyoperations, the emergency manager becomes a program coordinatorwhose job is to facilitate the development of a community emergencymanagement strategy and oversee its implementation. This focus onstrategy allows all the various components of the emergencymanagement program to work together to achieve a common vision ofcommunity resilience.

The text begins with historical and social science perspectiveson emergency management, and then delves into the historical andevolving roles of the emergency manager. Following a broaddiscussion on establishing an effective emergency managementprogram, the text explores its individual components,including:

  • Assessing risk
  • Developing strategies
  • Planning concepts
  • Planning techniques and methods
  • Coordinating response
  • Managing crisis

Throughout the discussion, case studies are used to illustrateboth successful and unsuccessful applications of emergencymanagement principles.

The need for effective emergency management is clear. This bookprovides a comprehensive, coordinated approach that is essentialfor all emergency program managers and anyone tasked with thecritical assignment of emergency preparedness and response ineither the public or private sector.
