It may seems sometimes that disasters and emergencies only befall our country – that is a media portrayal, but we know better. The entire planet is disaster prone, some places more than others.

We also consider intentional acts, some of which can rise to the level of terrorism…

Oklahoma City Bombing
Paris Terrorist Attack
Pretty frightening stuff! In Emergency Management, no matter what happens, we still have to respond. When it seems like too much or too emotional – what should we do?
