Abstract:

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.
