Abstract:

The symposium participants discussed emergencies ranging from heavy snowfall to nuclear war. The attendees ranged from professionals in research and academic institutions to operational organizations from local to national government officials and from emergency specialists to planners of large-scale civil defense preparations. The focus in practical areas was on police, fire and medical activities as demonstrations of emergency services. Civil defense was a frequent topic in discussions. The interaction of researchers with practitioners responsible for local administration and operation was of value because theoretical concepts could be measured against practical experience and actual occurrences.
