Emergency and Risk Management Case Studies Textbook

"Emergency management is most simply defined as the discipline dealing with risk and risk avoidance. Risk represents a broad range of issues and includes an equally diverse set of players. The range of situations and events that could potentially involve emergency management or the emergency management system is extensive. It is undeniable that emergency management is integral to the security of our daily lives, and as such it should be integrated into our daily decisions rather than being called upon only in response to major disasters." This free, online textbook contains eleven chapters concerning topics such as preparedness, mitigation, response, recovery, communication, etc.
