Phases of Emergency Management:

  • Mitigation: Are activities that either prevent the occurrence of an emergency or reduce the community's vulnerability in ways that minimize the adverse impact of a disaster or other emergency.
  • Preparedness: The activities, programs and systems that exist prior to an emergency and are used to support and enhance response to an emergency or disaster. Planning, training and exercising are among the activities conducted.
  • Response: Involves those activities and programs designed to address the immediate and short-term effects, at the onset, of an emergency or disaster. It helps reduce casualties and damage and speeds recovery. These activities include direction and control, warning, evacuation and other similar operations.
  • Recovery: Are those activities that involve restoring systems to normal. Short-term actions are taken to access damage and return vital life support systems to minimum operating standards; long-term actions may continue for many years.
