Minnesota Disaster Management Handbook (PDF)
Minnesota Department of Public Safety, 2010
The four phases of emergency management – mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery – are ongoing, interdependent, and to some degree, overlapping. To ignore the actions required by any one of the four phases jeopardizes the jurisdiction’s overall ability to “manage” disasters and emergencies. The purpose of this handbook is to provide a variety of tools to help emergency managers mitigate hazards, prepare for emergencies, and enhance the response and recovery phases of any emergency situation.
