Emergency Management is plans through which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters. Emergency Management does not always avert or eliminate the threats, instead it focuses on creating plans to decrease the impact of disasters. Failure to create a plan could lead to damage to assets, human mortality, and lost revenue. Events covered by Emergency Management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, enviromental hazards, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, search and rescue, and communication failures.
