State comprehensive emergency management : final report of the Emergency Preparedness Project, Center for Policy Research, National Governors' Association by National Governors' Association( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because governors have become increasingly concerned about the lack of a comprehensive national emergency policy, as well as the dispersion of federal responsibilities among numerous federal agencies which has hampered states' ability to manage disaster situations, they took concerted action in 1977. During the fall of that year, the National Governors' Association, which represents the mutual interests of the combined U.S. governors, took these actions: adopted a policy statement calling for a national policy, and consolidation of federal emergency preparedness and response services; set up a Subcommittee on Disaster Assistance; initiated a comprehensive one-year study to analyze the problems of all-risk management, and recommend federal-state-local assistance improvements; and began working with the Federal Emergency Preparedness and Response Study of the President's Reorganization Project (PRP/FEPR)

Comprehensive emergency management : a Governor's guide by National Governors' Association( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide highlights the findings of the National Governors' Association (NGA) Emergency Preparedness Project study, recommends an approach to comprehensive state emergency management, and offers pertinent management advice and tools based on hard-won experience in a variety of states. Case histories based on actual experience, as told by governors, their aides, and state emergency office directors, appear as insets throughout the text. These case histories both illustrate and augment the surrounding text. The outcomes of cases describing comprehensive emergency management are hypothetical, as this practice is not yet implemented in most states. Intended for governors and their staff aides, this guide is concerned with emergency management. It is one of a series of five companion publications of the NGA Center for Policy Research

Tornado protection : selecting and designing safe areas in buildings by James J Abernethy( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tornadoes and extreme winds cause heavy loss of life and property damage throughout the United States. Most buildings offer significant protection from this danger, and building administrators should know the areas where this protection is available. This booklet presents a review of three schools, all of which were struck by tornadoes on April 3, 1974. Damage to these buildings from the tornadoes was examined by teams of specially trained architectural and engineering faculty, the various building administrators, and representatives of the architectural firm that designed the buildings. From these studies, guidance has been developed on selecting best-available shelter from high winds in existing buildings. Information in the brochure can also be useful to architects and engineers in designing new buildings that would offer protection from high winds. (Author/MLF)
