Disasters strike anytime and anywhere. It takes many forms – a tornado, flood, winter storm, fire, a hazardous spill or acts of terrorism. To prepare for these disasters, emergency management can be defined as the coordination and integration of all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from or mitigate against threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other manmade disasters.
