Disaster Planning and Response Activity for CBOs:

CAA Disaster Planning and Relief Efforts

 By Jim Masters and Teresa Wickstrom

In November of 1993, a total of 108 participants in disaster planning, response, and relief efforts were interviewed about their community action agencies' activities during disasters. The Disaster Planning and Relief Efforts Summary includes 90 case studies from the survey, charts and graphs of the compiled data, and a summary of all responses to the questionnaire. The Summary has eight chapters, one for each type of disaster studied: Earthquake, Fire, Flood, Hurricane, Storms, Tornadoes, and Other. This Summary will assist your agency in disaster preparedness and planning.

CAA Experiences in Disaster Planning, Response, Relief, and Mitigation:  59 Lessons Learned

OCS hired us to look at how CAAs had been involved in several disasters that took place from the 1960s to 1994.  We interviewed 108 CAAs that had been involved in Hurricanes like Hugo, Iniki and Andrew, or that had helped on fires, floods, tornados and other calamities. There have been a LOT of disasters over the years that resulted in an official Presidential Declaration. The findings were shaped into 59 "lessons learned."  Download the free report by clicking here.
