Disaster and Emergency Management Systems

Tony Moore

This new book is the guide to the key benchmark standard for implementing a business continuity management (BCM) system.

Disaster and Emergency Management Systems (DEMS), provides a strategic overview of the key steps that organizations should take to ensure that the risks of catastrophic failure are proactively minimized.

This book examines how to design a disaster and emergency management system for any organization, including hospitals, the police force and airline companies.

It is written as a guide for anyone responsible for disaster and emergency management within their organization.

The systems described in this book are applicable to any organization, whether it is a hospital managing the outbreak of C Difficile, a bank managing a run on its credit, or a chemical company managing an incident that could seriously affect its reputation.
