The Changing Landscape of Natural Disaster Relief is an authoritative, insiders perspective on the strategic thinking behind leading an emergency management department or organization. Featuring directors of emergency management and response officials from across the country, this book provides a broad yet comprehensive overview of the challenges unique to planning for and recovering from a natural disaster. From determining emergency budgets for potential future events and developing a response plan to keeping citizens informed and coordinating partnerships with other agencies involved on the local, state, and federal levels, these leaders articulate the finer points of preparing for and managing events that are unpredictable and uncontrollable. The authors also discuss the laws that govern the emergency management system and the role and responsibilities of attorneys in situations that require legal assistance. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great minds in government today, as the experts explore the mechanisms in place to integrate disaster relief efforts across the country.
