State comprehensive emergency management : final report of the Emergency Preparedness Project, Center for Policy Research, National Governors' Association by National Governors' Association ( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 144 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 110 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

Public attitude findings are summarized under such topics as the international context, threat perception, general favorability, program support, salience, perceptions of local programs, perceptions of shelters as a survival resource, response to warning, and training and education impact. Findings are reviewed relevant to such special audiences as information seekers, youth, local governing bodies, community power structure, and voluntary organizations. Projections are made relative to the meaning of these findings for civil defense in the 1970's
