Fundamentals of Disaster Management (FDM)

Packed with easy-to-read flowcharts, tables, and informational graphics, this publication follows an all-hazards approach to disaster management that was developed by a consortium of academic, state, and federal centers under federal appropriation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
