Future Challenges for Emergency Management

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has stated that “The World is changing in ways that can have major effects on the emergency management community.” Our environment is evolving at a rapid pace and the emergencies that we are encountering are evolving just as quickly in terms of scope and complexity.
