California may have the most robust emergency preparedness system in the nation, but the State¿s preparedness needs have changed dramatically since that system developed, especially since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the anthrax attacks of 2001 and the risk of an avian flu pandemic, and Hurricane Katrina. This report maintains that without immediate action by the State of California, millions of Californians are at risk for injury, death or property damage in a catastrophic disaster. Contents: Introduction; Emergency Management in California; Preparing for Catastrophic Events; Integrating Emergency Services; Ensure Sufficient and Reliable Funding to Meet Needs; Promote Continuous Improvement and Accountability; Conclusion.
