A global catastrophic risk is a hypothetical future event which could damage human well-being on a global scale, even endangering or destroying modern civilization

A global catastrophic risk is a hypothetical future event which could damage human well-being on a global scale, even endangering or destroying modern civilization. An event that could cause human extinction or permanently and drastically curtail humanity's potential is known as an existential risk. Potential global catastrophic risks include anthropogenic risks, caused by humans (technology, governance, climate change), and non-anthropogenic or external risks. In his 2006 book, Acts of God: The Unnatural History of Natural Disaster in America, he chronicles a pro-vocative history of natural disasters in the United States. In this publication, Clifford Oliver fills in the gaps in emergency management education and compares the necessity for larger-scale catastrophe plans vs. plans for smaller-scale emergencies. Other topics include: historical catastrophic.

Presenting cutting-edge domestic and international approaches, Catastrophic Disaster Planning and Response explains how to effectively plan for and manage the consequences of a catastrophe.

Written by a recognized expert in emergency management, this volume is a thorough study of the planning process and response procedures for catastrophic disasters. Topics discussed include:

The history of catastrophic events, both in and outside the United States How catastrophes differ from disasters and emergencies and how they are all part of the emergency management continuum The varying definitions of catastrophes and their political and societal implications The main ethical and value dilemmas that one will likely face before, during, and after a catastrophe The legal framework associated with government response to catastrophes The post-catastrophic environment that an emergency manager might experience, with a focus on logistics, critical infrastructure, mass care, and mass evacuation Planning strategies and skills an emergency manager can employ to mitigate the effects of such an event The use of crisis leadership skills and how to lead and influence others in a catastrophic situation

Recent major events provide valuable lessons that demonstrate the characteristics of a catastrophic disaster, the special issues of response and recovery, and the necessary preparation on international, national, and local levels. Offering best practices using recent real-world case studies, the book provides a foundation for continued study and critical reflection.

Catastrophic Disaster Planning and Response is one of only two books utilized by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) in their elite 2010 Flag Office/SES Executive Change Leadership Program (ECL) curriculum. The ECL program develops the executive leadership skills of USCG Admiral-selects awaiting Senate confirmation, as well as members of the Department of Homeland Security's federal Senior Executive Service (SES), which in 2010 included representatives from the U.S. Secret Service, the Transportation Security Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Border Patrol, Citizenship and Immigration Services, and FEMA.

Readily adaptable for classroom use, this cutting-edge professional reference provides qualifying instructors with access to teaching materials and a test bank.

I have had the privelege of hearing the author speak at several events. I require this book for my students taking courses in this and related topics. I found it to be a complete and through reference tool. Mr. Oliver speaks from the position of having attended every major disaster during his 20 years at FEMA. He brings his vast experiences to the text and helps the reader understand the planning and responses required for events of this magnitude.

Mr. Oliver also helps the reader (student) understand the social and economic issues which precede and accompany all disasters. The book is the best of its class and I encourage other instructors to consider using for their courses.

I had to use this book for one of my classes in emergency management. This book rarely gets to the point. It has an unlimited amount of information about things that have happened in the past, but it doesn't really give good examples of what emergency management personnel can do to improve on particular things. For instance, Hurricane Katrina is mentioned throughout this entire book, but the book doesn't talk about how we can improve so as not to make the same mistakes again. It rarely gives examples of anything. I hate this book. I don't feel it is written well at all and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
