ABSTRACT

U.S. Disaster Policy and Management in an Era of Homeland Security [Chapter 10]   [open pdf - 316KB]

From the Abstract: "Using the tools of policy analysis, presidency studies, and public management research, this study provides an overview of post 9/11 presidential homeland security directives, altered presidential disaster declaration powers, and revisions in the National Response Plan and the National Incident Management System. Since 9/11, the president, aided by a host of federal officials, has largely established and steered homeland security policy. Congress has provided disaster managers new authority, new responsibilities, and regular infusions of funding for purposes set forth in law and policy. Homeland security policy makers have engaged in massive government planning efforts aimed fundamentally at a broad pool of federal, state, and local disaster responders. This study maintains that changes in policy and management have been hugely consequential, both positively and negatively, for the nation's emergency management community."
