FOUR PHASES OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

Mitigation – Taking sustained actions to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects.

Preparedness – Building the emergency management profession to effectively prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from any hazard by planning, training, and exercising.

Response – Conducting emergency operations to save lives and property by positioning emergency equipment and supplies; evaluating potential victims; providing food water, shelter, and medical care to those in need; and restoring critical services.

Recovery – Rebuilding communities so individuals, businesses, and governments can function on their own, return to normal life, and protect against future hazards.
