Rate this:
Effective response to mass emergencies is a critical role of every level of government. It is a role that requires an unusual level of planning, coordination, and dispatch among governments' diverse units.     The Committee began this investigation of the preparations for and response to Hurricane Katrina within two weeks of the hurricane's landfall on the Gulf Coast.   The Committee's report sets out seven recommendations together with a series of supporting tactical recommendations, all designed to make the nation's emergency-preparedness and response system strong, agile, effective, and robust.
