Emergency Response and Disaster Recovery

Why This Is Important

The events of September 11, 2001, were a vivid reminder of the need for preparations for disasters and emergencies. Again in 2005 the events surrounding Hurricane Katrina also reminded us of the need for such preparations. When vulnerable people cannot take care of themselves, and need assistance even in ordinary situations, what the support personnel must do in the face of emergencies and disasters is even more critical.
