History of emergency management l.jpg
History of Emergency Management

  • Began as “Civil Defense” in the 1950’s

  • Evolved into “Emergency Management” in the early 1990’s



Preparedness l.jpg
Preparedness

  • Preparedness means to have plans or preparations already made for reacting promptly and effectively to save lives and help response-and-rescue operations, before an emergency. 


Response l.jpg
Response

  • Response begins as soon as a disaster is detected or threatens.  It involves mobilizing and positioning emergency equipment and getting people out of danger.  It also means providing needed food, water, shelter, medical services, and bringing damaged services and systems back on line.   Local responders, government agencies, and private organizations take action.


Recovery l.jpg
Recovery

  • Recovery is actions taken to return to a normal or even safer situation, following an emergency or disaster.  Recovery includes getting financial assistance to help pay for repairs.  

  • Recovery can be short-term and long-term.  Short term recovery is the restoration of vital services and facilities to minimum standards of operation and safety.
