To keep emergency management, disaster response, and homeland security personnel fully current, Radvanovsky and McDougall have updated their essential reference.Keeping pace with the changes in laws and policies made by the Department of Homeland Security, Critical Infrastructure: Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, Second Edition reflects the development of the Incident Command System (ICS) and the total revision of the National Response Framework (NRF), implemented in 2008. The book expands sections on the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Homeland Security Presidential Directives, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisitions Systems (SCADA) security initiatives.

In addition to being a comprehensive source of highly useful reference material, this timely work also introduces the paradigm shift in thinking that is subtly moving us away from the Force Protection Doctrine toward an All-Hazards approach to CIP. To this end, it re-introduces the term called Critical Infrastructure Assurance (CIA). Keeping pace with this development, the authors demonstrate how emergency management and CIA go hand in hand.

This changing world of ours in which emergency preparedness is finding a permanent niche requires us to integrate and incorporate emergency management and homeland security concepts with infrastructure assurance options. Ultimately, to keep our society both prepare and psychologically healthy we must be able to assure that infrastructure services will continue operating no matter what disaster may befall us.
