Emergency Management

Emergency management (EM) is an up-and-coming field that really took off after the events of 9/11. It is important that each community be prepared for both man-made and natural disasters, should they happen either unannounced or with some warning. For this two-page essay, you are to research emergency management within your community. You need to compare and contrast the existence of the emergency management function before 9/11 and after this event. Some questions to answer should include the following: How is it different, and who is responsible for the management of this function? Is there a formal EM plan, and is the fire department part of that plan? Is it still as important in your community today as it was in the months following 9/11? Has this function been implemented in the past decade, and what were the outcomes? What is needed to improve the emergency management function within your community?
