Abstract:

A team from the Disaster Research Center at Ohio State University studied the organizational response to an explosion in an apartment house complex in Montreal, Canada on March 1, 1965. A major purpose of the study was to examine how the emergency responses in this disaster were similar andor different from those observed in the 1963 Coliseum explosion in Indianapolis, Indiana. In general, organizations in both disasters had somewhat the same kinds of difficulties in coordinating with other organizations and had similar convergence and communication problems.
