A not happy post about the state of homeland security and emergency management. Also a peek into the balance between locals and federal response funding and priority.
A document you might find interesting. The toolkit "provides quantitative post-disaster assessment procedures that can identify the health status and basic needs such as food, water, and shelter of the affected population."
Very interesting post on including the disability community in preparedness planning. I especially like the paragraph on how truly inclusive preparedness needs to happen at the local and state level (this seems to be something I've been harping on lately). And the deaf CERT team? Brilliant!
