Abstract

Our discussion of past efforts to develop and implement hazard mitigation and preparedness policies leads to fundamental questions about the appropriate modes of shared governance and the need for a federal agency like FEMA. Addressing these questions at the broadest level requires a basic reconsideration of the mandates for federal involvement in the disaster policy arena. A narrower focus to these questions requires a rethinking of the question of how mandates become translated into programs and operations.
