The in basic terms publication to mix emergency administration rules with confirmed army suggestions

Any catastrophe plan infrequently survives the 1st rain bands of a storm or the 1st tremors of an earthquake. whereas constructing plans is vital, there needs to be structures in position to evolve those plans to the ever-changing operational atmosphere of a catastrophe. at the moment there's no set of normal catastrophe reaction ideas to lead a neighborhood.

There is simply too much information from too many sources to make good decisions without a system to sort and prioritize it. These priorities can change as time goes on and as incidents are taken care of over time, but in the first hours or even days these priorities can help focus the team on the most critical problems out of hundreds that will confront them. What do you need to do?

I moved on to the next problem. I returned to ESF #6 approximately half an hour later to see how things had gone and asked what he had found out. He had not done a thing. He had not called the county, even though the phone number was posted less than a foot in front of him on the wall. He had not contacted the person who had called. He had been frozen in place by a simple request. This was a respected middle manager in the city who was responsible for a large number of personnel and a budget. Yet he could not make a phone call.

The wrong first decisions will lead to a longer disruption for average citizens and their lives and businesses. This disruption of people's lives will be the real measure of the impact a disaster has on a community. 44 Chapter Three THE PHASES OF DISASTER RESPONSE A strict definition of disaster response does not include phases.
