Disasters and Emergencies: Managing the Response

Bill Tucker served as a member of the British Fire Service for over 29 years. His interest in disaster management and subsequent academic award of an MSc degree stemmed from his involvement with the Lockerbie Air Disaster in 1988, when he led the firefighting and recovery operations in the early stages of the incident. Most of us will never experience disaster but, because disasters are rare events does not mean that they can be ignored. In this book, Bill Tucker competently and comprehensively shows how the desire to be ready can be planned and personnel enabled to respond effectively. This overview of disaster management is aimed at those involved in disaster preparedness, the emergency services and the voluntary support agencies who need to be prepared to think about dealing with the unthinkable.
