In this new book, Bill Kramer examines the complexities of disaster planning and control, covering the concepts of disaster management, development of disaster and emergency operation plans, and much more. Through examples and case studies, the book is designed to allow the fire officer to study how the fire service has been involved with responding to various disasters and, by learning from the past and understanding the concepts presented, make a difference in the overall outcome of future events.

Disaster Planning and Control will be an invaluable resource for anyone involved in disaster response--from the frontline worker to the highest elected official. This book is written to the FESHE model curriculum for the Disaster Planning and Recovery course.
