Description

This book discusses the fundamentals of emergency management. The four phases of emergency management are discussed in detail throughout the book. These phases are mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery with respect to floods, earthquakes, storms, and other man made as well as natural disasters. This book uses easy to understand examples that also include populations such as senior citizens and the disabled. There are numerous chapters that show the progression of emergency management equipment and how it was used through the last four centuries in the United States. There is also a section on the atomic age which explains radiation, fallout, and some warning systems that are in place to warn the public in case of nuclear accidents such as Three Mile Island. There are also some never seen photos of Nagasaki shortly after the blast in World War Two. We will also meet Uncle Bob who sometimes worked in the hot zone and was later electrocuted, injured his spine, and was in a coma for a while. We will also discuss some of the issues with electrical burns too. Later chapters include the topic of telemedicine and the technology used in telemedicine. Telemedicine becomes important to serve rural communities around the world where people may not have access to quality health care usually available in cities.
