Emergency Management

Print

Despite our best efforts, disasters like the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan, the terrorist attacks of September 11th, or the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico are going to occur. After years of research and learning from our strengths and weaknesses, we have not been able to prevent every disaster from transpiring.

Fortunately, we have been able to learn how to prepare, respond, mitigate and recover in order to reduce the loss of life and property.
