September is National Preparedness Month in the United States, sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) within the Department of Homeland Security. National Preparedness Month encourages people to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, schools, and communities.
In observance of this event, IGI Global and Skillsoft Books24x7 would like to draw attention to a few premier reference sources in their vast collection of research.
Emergency Management and Disaster Response Utilizing Public-Private Partnerships bridges the gap between the theoretical and the practical components of crisis management and response. By discussing and presenting research on the benefits and challenges of such partnerships, this publication is an essential resource for academicians, practitioners, and researchers interested in understanding the complexities of crisis management and relief through public and private partnerships.
Another timely resource, Managing Crises and Disasters with Emerging Technologies: Advancements offers the most vital, up-to-date research within the field of disaster management technologies. Since the first disaster information network was set up nearly fifteen years ago, information technologies have advanced at an exponential rate, allowing those managing emergencies, crises, and disasters to effectively manage and utilize data in a safe, efficient way. This collection includes research and updates from authors from around the world, with a variety of perspectives and insights into the most cutting edge technology the field has to offer.
