Given the frequency of natural and man-made disasters and the degree to which ordinary citizens find themselves as first responders, this book offers some well-researched answers to the following and frequently asked questions:
What motivates ordinary citizens to (or to want to) assist others in danger even when their own lives might be at stake?
To what extent do human emotions influence public policy and administrative decisions on how to mitigate, prepare for, and respond to catastrophic events?
How can governments better prepare for emergencies knowing these facts?
The book goes further to suggest a number of strategies for policy makers, communities, and individuals to protect human lives and property. Tool kit URLs for preparing to different types of emergencies are included.
