Emergency Management Handbook, 1st Edition
The Emergency Management Handbook (1st edition) provides a groundwork on which emergency services can build a strong foundation for disaster and emergency management and homeland security in the 21st century. Many relatively new requirements, standards, rules, policies, regulations, presidential directives, and laws exist. The main focus of the handbook is to address the requirements of NFPA® 1600, Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs (2007), as a minimum and build on them to provide even more information to the reader.The Emergency Management Handbook was written by emergency management planning professionals for emergency management practitioners, managers, professors, and students along with the news media and the general public. It addresses the issues, policies, questions, best practices, and lessons learned through recent years. Several appendices, a bibliography, and a glossary are included. A bonus CD-ROM disc containing additional reference documents completes this manual.
