About This Book

Urban Emergency Management: Planning and Response for the 21st Century takes the concepts and practices of emergency management and places them in the context of the complex challenges faced by the contemporary city. Cities provide unique challenges to emergency managers. The concentrated population and often dense layering of infrastructure can be particularly susceptible to disasters—both natural and human-caused. The book provides guidance across all phases of emergency management, including prevention and all-hazards approaches.

  • Presents an all-hazards and all-phases approach to emergency management, including natural hazards and human-caused disasters
  • Covers the human capital and political and leadership qualities needed by urban emergency managers
  • Targets the needs of emergency management in urban settings
