  • Large-scale, complex disasters occur infrequently, but they present challenges that are different from smaller events and most emergency managers haven't experienced resource requirements and priority management on that scale. The need to synchronize intergovernmental and interagency efforts, intense media and political scrutiny, and the level of destruction and human suffering create a very different paradigms than smaller, locally managed disasters and as a result, many local leaders won't be prepared to coordinate complex events. This panel will discuss the issues senior leaders will face when a truly "big one" strikes.
