What is Emergency Management?

Emergency management (disaster management) is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding risks, particularly those that have deleterious or catastrophic consequences for communities, regions, or entire countries.  Focus on mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Effective emergency management relies on integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government. Activities at each level (individual, group, community) affect other levels.
