A true professional, Mike Fagel arrived at FDNY WTC Incident Command Post on Duane Street, a short distance from Ground Zero, as chaos was still not contained. He organized, directed, and cajoled until order again appeared in our health and safety efforts for the thousands of personnel struggling at rescuing and recovering the victims of 9/11. Many of the Ground Zero workers have their health still intact because of Mike’s courage and efforts. The Fire Department was well served by his knowledge and expertise.
―Charles R. Blaich, Deputy Chief FDNY, & Logistics Chief, WTC ICP

This book covers a range of topics: from the importance of developing a planning team, as well as an an emergency operations plan and exercise program, to assessing vulnerabilities, disaster preparedness and the law (a chapter worth a book on its own), continuity of operations planning, business continuity management, EOC management/operations and how it interfaces with the Incident Command System, and responder health and safety/stress management. Also included are three appendices regarding homeland security and emergency management, managing spontaneous volunteers and emergency management and the media.
Given the breadth and technicality of these subjects, it'd be easy to get lost in complex jargon and explanations but the experts Dr. Fagel assembled for this book do an exceptional job of striking a balance between detail and readability. There's a lot of useful information and experience packed into these pages. The chapters also include example forms and checklists which would serve as a solid base for anyone to get started with.
This book would be an excellent resource, not only for those in already in emergency management, but for anyone who has an interest in the subject and want a solid grounding of what should come with the territory.
