Personal, Community & Organizational Readiness

Disaster Response SMARTbook 3 – Disaster Preparedness, 2nd Ed. (Personal, Community & Organizational Readiness) is the updated 376-page second edition of this book. The material has been completely updated and refocused as a planning and preparation guide; topics include disaster fundamentals, personal preparedness, community preparedness, organizational preparedness, natural disasters (hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, floods & landslides, volcanoes, tsunamis, tornadoes, drought, famine & extreme heat, blizzards & ice storms, outbreaks, epidemics & pandemics), man-made disasters (hazardous material incidents, nuclear events, explosions & chemical spills, civil disturbances, terrorist incidents, active shooters, cyber threats), and recovering from a disaster.

Disaster can strike anytime, anywhere. It takes many forms—a hurricane, an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, a fire, a hazardous spill, or an act of terrorism. In the past decade alone, natural disasters of considerable severity resulted in 699 Presidential Disaster Declarations, an average of nearly six per month.

Disaster management (or emergency management) is the term used to designate the efforts of communities or businesses to plan for and coordinate all the personnel and materials required to either mitigate the effects of, or recover from, natural or man-made disasters, or acts of terrorism.

Individuals can make a difference in their own community but not everyone has bought into preparedness. Research on personal preparedness indicates that individuals who believe they are prepared for disasters often are not as prepared as they think. In addition, some admit they do not plan at all.

Our nation’s emergency managers, firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMT/paramedics, and other emergency responders do an incredible job of keeping us safe, but they cannot do it alone. We must all embrace our personal responsibility to be prepared -- in doing so, we contribute to the safety and security of our communities as well.

Planning and preparing can make a big difference in being safe and keeping an organization operational during and after a disaster. The ability to maintain or quickly reestablish operations or organization processes requires a focus on preparedness, advance planning, and relationships with external partners and community leaders.

Recovering from a disaster is usually a gradual process. Safety is a primary issue, as are mental and physical well-being. If assistance is available, knowing how to access it makes the process faster and less stressful.
