Summary
"Hurricane Katrina was the latest in a series of major disasters that were not well managed, but, without extensive reforms, it is not likely to be the last, posits James Miskel, a former official at FEMA. In Disaster Response and Homeland Security, Miskel identifies reforms that should be implemented to improve the nation's ability to respond to future emergencies, arguing that a successful emergency response program requires nothing less than a redesign of our entire disaster response system."--BOOK JACKET
