Abstract:

This paper considers whether the U.S. has 1 an appropriate Federal organization for effectively managing the common functions of emergency management and for responding to the varied events that fall within these functions and 2 a sufficiently defined strategic doctrine including laws, regulations, policies, and priorities for emergency management. Federal emergency management, as discussed in this paper, includes, a full range of actions needed for domestic response to emergency events, but does not include the use of the military in war scenarios or relations with other countries.
