disasters have occurred. In general, any Emergency management is the continuous process by which all individuals, groups, and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid or ameliorate the impact of disasters resulting from the hazards. Actions taken depend in part on perceptions of risk of those exposed. 2 Effective emergency management relies on thorough integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government involvement.

What Is YOUR Small Business Prepared For?
I’m reacting to a lot of personal change this month:  the flood of the millennium, finalizing a divorce after 18 months of delay, moving, and a radically different summer schedule than I expected all contribute to feeling a bit overwhelmed (and being somewhat behind on blog posts).  I had some warnings that some of those things were likely to happen, but I didn’t realize they would all come together at one time.

Homeland Security Department Pushes for Emergency Preparedness ...
Security and emergency preparedness were important issues for facility executives long before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The U.S. government faced the same challenge on a national scale. The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission, was created in late 2002 to review how the attacks occurred, how to respond and to provide recommendations to thwart future attacks. A federal law ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Item: Get Out Alive
When we think of disasters, the last words that comes to mind are "calm," "simple" or "methodical." The image rises, straight out of a disaster movie or news account of the horrific earthquakes and floods that have plagued our planet of late, of a family frantically running away from explosions, collapses or rising tides. But the deputy coordinator of the township’s Emergency Management Council, Millburn Police Lt. Peter Eakley, advocates a more prosaic and cool-headed way of looking at it. Eakley advises us to take an "all-hazards" approach, making one plan for emergencies of all shapes ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
