Synopsis

Case Studies in Disaster Response focuses on the key functions to be performed in the emergency response to a disaster, how these functions are coordinated, and the typical challenges and issues that emerge. Cases address both hazard- and response-generated needs. Also explored are the needs generated by emergent threats (e.g., Ebola crisis), emergent technologies (e.g., social media), and emergent groups (e.g., social innovation teams) that set the stage for innovation and adaption.

Dr. Steven Jensen has expertise in emergency services leadership and the emerging patterns of globalized disaster risk management. He brings a field experience from a 30+ year career comprising a variety of international and U.S. disaster risk management settings. The intersection of leadership, hazards and globalization is a focus of his scholarly work and gives him a unique perspective for advancing disaster risk management processes. Dr. Jensen earned his Doctoral degree in Public Policy from the University of Southern California. His MS in Emergency Management was received from California State University, and BS in International Studies from Whitworth University. Additionally, he serves as a science advisor to the American Red Cross in disaster risk management. David Johnston is the Professor of Disaster Management and Director of the Joint Centre for Disaster Research, in the School of Psychology at Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. His research has developed as part of multi-disciplinary theoretical and applied research programme, involving the collaboration of physical and social scientists from several organisations and countries. His areas of interest focus on human responses to volcano, tsunami, earthquake and weather warnings, crisis decision-making and the role of public education and participation in building community resilience and recovery.
