The goal of emergency management, a risk management activity, is to create safe, secure and disaster-resilient communities through the implementation and maintenance of comprehensive risk-based emergency management programs and plans.
Core Elements of Emergency Management
Emergency management starts with individuals being responsible for their own safety, and the well-being of their families, and progresses through the levels of community as the magnitude of emergencies (and the resources required to deal with them) expands.
