Description: The second edition of Disaster Response and Recovery updates the popular previous edition of this book keeping the material fresh and accessible and incorporates recent changes in policy as well as new research. Like the first edition, the second edition, provides an overview of: the various types of disasters that may occur, the myriad of actors that are involved in emergency management, and the diverse theoretical frameworks from which post-disaster activities may be approached. After addressing the most salient functions performed when disasters strike (e.g., warning, evacuation, search and rescue, debris removal, donations management, etc.), the book examines typical challenges to be expected during response efforts along with tools and techniques to enhance the ability to protect lives, reduce property damage and minimize disruption through multi-organizational preparedness, coordination and improvisation. Disaster Response and Recovery includes strategies to facilitate the revitalization of affected communities while also incorporating vital mitigation measures to reduce future vulnerability. It highlights recent lessons learned from incidents and catastrophes such as: Hurricane Katrina, Earthquake in Haiti, Parking lot collapse in Miami, West Texas industrial explosion, Train wreck in Spain, Aurora movie shooting, Times Square bombing, etc.
