Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery is often unplanned for in the emergency management life cycle. Yet recovery is the key stage where funds, programs, professional expertise, and volunteer efforts are applied to affected cities, states, and regions to get them up and running again. Providing a unique perspective on a highly focused area, Disaster Recovery is the first core text that tackles the myriad recovery issues faced by federal, state, and local emergency managers, public officials, and voluntary organizations in a long-term disaster recovery situation. The book takes a holistic approach, integrating the various challenges of recovery such as housing, the infrastructure, and workplaces. Disaster Recovery emphasizes three key themes by integrating vulnerable populations into each chapter, stressing the importance of tying mitigation measures into every aspect of recovery, and encouraging rebuilding in environmentally sustainable ways. Coverage includes topics such as recovery planning, housing, debris management, business and private sector recovery, public/governmental recovery and operations, historical and cultural preservation, environmental recovery, social and psychological recovery and services, voluntary non-governmental organizations (NGOs), federal assistance programs, grant-writing, and donations management. Pedagogical tools to clarify concepts Each chapter features pedagogy to encourage comprehension and retention, including key terms, learning objectives, highlighted practical applications, review questions, a summary, and references. Numerous classic and recent case studies ensure concepts are fully explained and illustrated. In addition, PowerPoint® slides are also available for adopters. Designed for professional and classroom use, this volume thoroughly covers the disaster recovery process, offering vital insight into the evolving field of emergency management.

Consumer Vulnerability

Consumer vulnerability is of growing importance as a research topic for those exploring wellbeing. This book provides space to critically engage with the conditions, contexts and characteristics of consumer vulnerability, which affect how people experience and respond to the marketplace and vice versa. Focussing on substantive, ethical, social and methodological issues, this book brings together key researchers in the field and practitioners who work with vulnerability on a daily basis. Organised into 4 sections, it considers consumer vulnerability and key life stages, health and wellbeing, poverty, and exclusion. Methodologically the chapters draw on qualitative research, employing a variety of methods from interview, to the use of poetry, film and other cultural artefacts. This book will be of interest to marketing and consumer research scholars and students and also to researchers in other disciplines including sociology, public policy and anthropology, and practitioners, policy makers and charitable organisations working with vulnerable groups.

People  Fire and Forests

Years of drought and decades of aggressive fire exclusion have left North American forests at high risk for future catastrophic fires. Forest settings are a magnet for recreational opportunities and for rapidly growing residential development--putting an increasing number of citizens and their property into the path of wildfires. Recordsetting wildfires initiated the twentyfirst century and motivated the rise to prominence of wildfire on the political agenda, prompting important and farreaching new public policy initiatives. To be effective, these policies must be informed by science--but that requires more than just improved knowledge about the physical and biological dynamics of fire and forest ecosystems. Social values, socioeconomic factors, demographic trends, institutional arrangements, and human behavior must also be taken into consideration by the agencies and individuals responsible for wildland fire decision making. The first book to integrate the social science literature on the human dimensions of wildfire, People, Fire, and Forests reviews current studies from this broad, interdisciplinary field and synthesizes them into a rich body of knowledge with practical management implications. Chapters in the book highlight principal findings and common threads in the existing research and identify strengths and gaps. They cover such topics as public perception of wildfire risk, acceptability of fire management policies, and community impacts of wildfire. Designed to make relevant social science information more available and useful to wildfire risk managers and policy makers, People, Fire, and Forests is also intended to encourage and guide further research into wildfire. By exploring the theoretical and methodological issues surrounding human interactions with wildfire and describing the practical implications of this research, this volume provides an essential resource for students, scholars, and professionals.

Homeland Security for the Private Sector

Homeland Security for the Private Sector

The field of homeland security is only a few years old, and is changing rapidly as new practices emerge to safeguard America's cities, towns, and citizens from future terrorist attacks. Private sector companies are also developing new practices in this emerging discipline to protect their operations, employees, and customers. Executives and consultants have devised measures to protect private buildings, ensure that citizens are properly evacuated if a crisis occurs, and online databases from compromise. This volume collects the best homeland security practices from the private sector for the use of business persons and citizens throughout the nation. It includes a wide range of essays published since September of 2001. Also included is a regional resource directory, a national resource directory, a bibliography, and an index.
