Homeland Security and Emergency Management..

You are an emergency manager in a medium-sized city. Your city manager is new to the position, from a human resource background, and is therefore unfamiliar with the risks posed by natural and technological hazards. Therefore, the city manager would like you to provide him with some introductory information related to risks and hazards, including appropriate response strategies to help him understand the challenges faced by your community and the nation overall.

At this point, your city manager is asking for the big picture and states that he will require additional specific details related to emergency management at a future date.
