ABSTRACT

Emergency Management and Law [Chapter 19]   [open pdf - 254KB]

From the Abstract: "The following chapter relates the history of law and emergency management, discusses vulnerability and steps to be taken for its reduction, defines various concepts from a legal perspective, and examines gaps in knowledge between the two fields. The chapter also notes how law may improve emergency management and identifies considerations that are paramount to the future. The major argument to be presented is that law and emergency management are inherently intertwined and that legal norms in the disaster field are changing and having a significant impact on the profession."
