Abstract:

Government organizations at all levels are facing intense pressure to establish and measure readiness: the ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from crises and natural disasters. Readiness as a concept is easy to grasp in principle, yet exceedingly difficult to implement due to the fragmentation of processes within the public safety sector and a fundamental failure to understand the difference between capacity and capability building to achieve Readiness. A strategy is required that will enable heterogeneous public safety communities to achieve operational agility before, during and after a crisis while optimizing their allocation of funding to arrive at a balanced readiness posture.
