Federal Emergency Management: A Brief Introduction
Bruce R. Lindsay (ed)
The federal government plays a significant role in emergency management, which generally refers to activities associated with avoiding and responding to natural and human-caused hazards. Emergency management in the U.S. is highly decentralized and contextual in nature: activities often involve multiple jurisdictions as well as a vast number of agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and private sector entities. In addition, the number and type of actors involved in an incident will vary tremendously depending on the context and severity of the event. Similarly, the legal framework through which emergency management functions and activities are authorized is also decentralized and stems from multiple authorities. Congress annually appropriates funds for a wide range of activities and efforts related to emergency management. This report provides a general overview of principles and foundations of federal emergency management in the U.S. as well as the types of activities provided by various federal agencies. Table. This is a print on demand report.
