Principles of Emergency Management: Hazard Specific Issues and Mitigation offers preparedness and mitigation recommendations for advanced emergency planning. Because disasters are so unpredictable, advance planning is needed to effectively respond to and mitigate against the potential effects of such events. Whether a disaster is natural or man-made, accidental or deliberate, the best way to protect the public is by implementing an integrated emergency management system incorporating all potential stakeholders through all phases of the event. As such, the book suggests best practices for drills, exercises, and pre-event team building and communication. More than a dozen contributors offer their professional expertise on a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Emergency operations center management
  • Continuity planning of vital services in the aftermath of a disaster
  • The role of the public health official
  • Developing public-private partnerships
  • Specific types of disasters, including terrorism, agroterrorism, pandemics, and active shooter incidents
  • Mass care, sheltering, and human services
  • The special needs of children in disasters
  • Traditional and social media and their impact on emergency management
The book is a valuable planning resource for those tasked with managing operations to prepare for, mitigate, and respond to disasters.
