Abstract:

This report presents the results of the second year of a five-year program to improve and augment a self-help program in disaster preparedness for industry. Under this program, industrial protection guidelines have been developed to enable U.S. industry to reduce its vulnerability. Follow-on work addressed the vulnerability to the complete gamut of emergencies - from day-to-day emergencies industrys main concern to nuclear attack - as a strategy to induce industry to adopt an integrated all-hazards preparedness program. Most important has been the problem of how to influence industry to apply the countermeasures developed the specific method applied has been strong contractor participation in a local mutual aid group consisting of industrial and governmental agencies concerned with developing more effective response to community emergencies. This approach has been extremely successful in improving information exchange and in developing preparedness concepts that fit the FEMA strategy of an integrated emergency management system approach. The report summarizes the present status of these efforts. Author
