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.

Recent events worldwide have made disaster preparedness and disaster communication to the public a crucial concern. September 11th, the Indian Ocean tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and other mega-disasters have highlighted not only a woeful lack of community awareness of vulnerability but also the absence of a clear protocol for what to do as events unfold. The first book dedicated solely to the topic of pre-disaster communication, Communicating Emergency Preparedness: Strategies for Creating a Disaster Resilient Public presents the best ways to inform communities about disaster risk factors, response plans, and emergency procedures without fomenting panic or paranoia. With an emphasis on protecting the community by raising public awareness, this volume: • Contains historical facts and figures about public awareness and preparedness campaigns and their influence on behavior • Examines and details deficiencies in current disaster preparedness public education efforts and offers real-world solutions • Provides step-by-step instructions on planning and conducting a public education effort • Includes a series of case studies which identify various public awareness campaigns that have been successfully conducted in communities Recognizing that knowledge is the best defense, this practical resource provides public administration officials, emergency managers, evacuation coordinators, and community leaders at the local and national level with the background and tools needed to plan, design, and carry out effective public disaster preparedness campaigns.

In the past, societies would learn from disasters and move the location of their urban development to safer areas, allowing naturally occurring ecosystems to maintain themselves and for societies to exist symbiotically with the environment. These days, however, it seems that society no longer takes cues from the environment but rather relies on technical advancement to attempt to control and overcome the environment, sometimes with wholly unsuccessful and even catastrophic results. Bringing together leading research from top academics and scholars, Community Disaster Recovery and Resiliency: Exploring Global Opportunities and Challenges Emphasizes non-traditional approaches to disaster recovery and rebuilding communities. It highlights the different ways various societies have experienced disasters, learned from them, and revised their thinking about building community preparedness and resiliency pre- and post-disaster. • Provides a clear, concise, and up-to-date understanding of best practices for rebuilding community institutions and community development after a disaster • Focuses on integrated solutions for ecological restoration and community development in disaster recovery planning and implementation • Compares and contrasts community rebuilding between different nations at different stages of development, economic power, and stability • Includes case studies that illustrate best practices, integrating the concept of community and community rebuilding for local, national, and international stakeholders All chapters offer diverse community examples that form a framework for comparing best practices. They focus on integrated solutions for ecological restoration and community development and explain how communities can reduce their vulnerability to disasters and reduce recovery time following a disaster. The book indentifies the opportunities and challenges communities are most likely to face on the road to recovery and supplies the interdisciplinary, social scientific understanding required to effectively address those challenges.

In the Foreword to this book, former FEMA Director James Lee Witt tells us: “The Hard reality is that mega-events, which we now call catastrophes, are too multi-dimensional, too confusing, and have such broad impacts that no single plan, organizational methodology, or agency type can effectively manage the myriad important tasks-nor, perhaps, even consider all that needs to be done-to minimize both immediate and downstream consequences.” Preparedness and Response for Catastrophic Disasters provides important insight into plans to mitigate and reduce the devastation caused by large-scale catastrophic events. Written by top disaster scholars and practitioners, this book defines what constitutes a catastrophic event, outlining both the factors that can lead to catastrophes and the unique logistical, planning, and response challenges posed by them. Distinct from general disasters, these events are termed "catastrophic" due to their large footprint, impacts to logistics and infrastructure, the devastating effects on large-scale populations, and the ripple effects on regional and global economies. Preparedness and Response for Catastrophic Disasters examines why catastrophes must be approached differently. If governments, public administrators, and emergency management professionals are to succeed in protecting our populations, there must be consensus, decisiveness, and leadership in both the coordination and response. In addition, there must be a fundamental recognition that catastrophic events compromise the very infrastructure—public utilities, delivery of goods and service, schools, business functions, and government—that supports communities and upon which modern society is based. As such, the book outlines the ways in which catastrophes can dramatically affect populations and, based on that information, addresses new, innovative, and fundamentally unique strategies we can institute to better prepare populations for catastrophic events and their aftermath.
