Disaster Time Line:
Claire B. Rubin
EIIP Moderator: Amy Sebring
The new Disaster Time Line provides a unique, graphic depiction of major disasters, both natural and technological, that have affected emergency management policies in the US. The focus is on the national level. Using colorful computer graphics, the Disaster Time Line (roughly 18" x 38") provides a snapshot of major disaster events that are considered major milestones; and it shows outcomes in terms of legislative, regulatory, and organizational changes.Future revisions and enhancements are planned. This chart can be used as a teaching or briefing tool, and will ship during September, 1999.
