Synopsis

This text brings together the entire spectrum of responses that should be required. In-depth topics range from an explanation of how the profile of disasters has changed over time; through the planning of actions to take in the event of an accident and the training of personnel, to an examination of the role of the media in disaster situations, and finally the responses from various parties to a major incident and ways in which these problems can be addressed. Many myths surround peoples' behaviour during major incidents and this book aims to challenge those myths - not just of the professional responders but also the behaviour of the survivors and "passers-by" rescuers. Questions are asked that should help the incident planner re-evaluate the measures they have in place and the book should also help organizations and individuals to pay attention to those measures that subsequent inquiries may be critical of. It also proivdes evidence from the latest findings such as the Ladbroke Grove Rail Inquiry.
