Responding to Natural Disasters: The Emergency Management Process

Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, Indian Ocean Tsunami, flooding, blizzards: Natural disasters are often in the news. But is there any way to control the damage or loss of life? These posters will inform about the emergency management process--assessment, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery-- which can provide a method for effectively dealing with disasters and potential disasters. They will show examples of this process working at its best and also cases in which it failed to prevent tragedy. Additionally, the contrasting character and effectiveness of disaster management between rich and poor countries will be shown.
