A Federal Plan for Natural Disaster Warning and Preparedness, Federal Committee for Meteorological Services and Supporting Research.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (DOC), Rockville, MD.
This plan to mitigate the impact of potential geophysical natural disasters, including those caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes, integrates and coordinates the multiagency functions in warning services and community preparedness related to many of these disasters. The plan is divided into five sections. The first two sections establish the background for a plan and identify the authority and source of needs to which the plan is addressed. Section 3 discusses the functions of environmental monitoring, warning preparation and warning dissemination. Section 4 discusses community preparedness and Section 5 is a detailed description of needs versus programmed actions, costs and benefits. (Author/BB)
