Abstract:

Local government officials are key decision-makers in the implementation of civil defense programs on the local level. As local officials are given new tasks in civil defense, they understand their roles to varying degrees. The report focuses on 1 the extent to which local officials understand their own civil defense roles, 2 the extent to which they understand the civil defense roles of other local officials, 3 the local officials evaluations of their own civil defense role performances, and 4 their evaluations of the civil defense role performances of other local officials. Findings are stated. Implications are drawn from the findings for change agents.
