Ninety-nine percent of the time, the world spins like a top, the skies are clear, and your refrigerator is full of good food. But the world is a volatile place—storms rage, fires burn, and diseases spread. No one is ever completely safe. Humans live as part of a very complex ecosystem that is unpredictable and merciless. Could you protect your family in the case of an emergency—domestic or global? The Disaster Preparedness Handbook will help you to establish a practical disaster plan for your entire family (covering all fourteen basic human needs) in case the unpredictable happens. Additional information is also presented for those with special needs, including the elderly and disabled, children, pregnant women, and even pets. Well-researched by an army veteran and current NASA engineer, this is the essential guide every family should have, study, and keep handy, in case the unthinkable should occur.

Record breaking hurricane seasons, tornados, tsunamis, earthquakes, and intentional acts of mass-casualty violence, give lie to the delusion that disasters are the anomaly and not the norm. Disaster management is rooted in the fundamental belief that we can protect ourselves. Even if we cannot control all the causes, we can prepare and respond. We can craft constructive, workable policy that will contribute to the prevention of enormous financial impact, destruction of the environment, and needless loss of life. Integrating scholarly articles from international experts and first hand accounts from the practitioner community, Disaster Management Handbook presents an analytical critique of the interrelated, multidisciplinary issues of preparedness, response, and recovery in anticipating and rebuilding from disasters. Beginning with an introduction to the theoretical constructs and conceptual foundations of disaster management, the book reviews the relationship of modern development to disaster vulnerability, the politics of disaster management, leadership, and the role of agency coordination. The second and third sections examine case studies and lessons learned through natural disasters in North America and around the world. They compare and contrast the efficacy of different management strategies from national, provincial, and local governments, as well as non-governmental agencies. Taking a narrower scope, the fourth section focuses on emergency personnel and the methods and issues faced in on-the-scene response and preparation. It also considers the special needs of hospitals and the effective use of the media. Contributions in the final two sections present strategies for limiting and ameliorating the psychological impact of disaster on victims and personnel, and look forward to how we can be better prepared in the future and rebuild stronger, more resilient communities.

We live in a world where disaster incidents are on the rise. From natural disasters to war and conflict to infectious diseases, being prepared for such events takes tremendous preparation and practice. Nurses are on the frontlines of disaster relief and care, but too few are trained in disaster prep, response, and recovery. Further, too few nurse faculty have personal, real-world experience in responding to natural and man-made disasters. So, where to start? How do nurse faculty members fit one more thing into a course or curriculum? And how do nurses stay on top of their game when it comes to disaster and emergency preparedness? Designing and Implementing a Disaster Preparedness Curriculum: Readying Nurses for the Worst presents a curriculum blueprint for nurse educators that provides readers with the best practices for implementation while avoiding pitfalls and mistakes. Disaster preparation experts Sharon Stanley and Thola Wolanski help ensure that nursing students are as prepared as possible to respond to disasters, whether in their own neighborhoods or around the world, by giving nurse educators strategies and solutions for incorporating disaster preparedness into their curriculum.
