IFSTA Emergency Management Handbook, 1st Edition
The IFSTA Emergency Management Handbook provides a groundwork on which emergency services can build a strong foundation for disaster and emergency management and homeland security in the 21st century. Building off the requirements of NFPA 1600 – 2007 Edition (Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity/Continuity of Operations Programs), the handbook addresses the issues, policies, questions, best practices, and lessons learned through recent years. Written by emergency management planning professionals, the handbook is a valuable resource for emergency management practitioners, managers, professors, and students as well as the news media and general public. The IFSTA Emergency Management Handbook supports the efforts of emergency responders and emergency managers around the world and assists them by providing usable information and resources.
This handbook includes several appendices, a bibliography, and a glossary. A bonus disc CD-ROM contains additional information and documents that are too large to include in the handbook but that are valuable reference materials. 1st Edition (2007). 729 pages.
