Introduction Emergency management has its roots in ancient history. Early hieroglyphics depict cave dwellers trying to deal with disasters. The Bible speaks of the many disasters that befell civilizations. In fact, the account of Moses parting the Red Sea could be interpreted as the first attempt at flood control. As long as there have been disasters, individuals and communities have tried to find ways to fix them, but organized attempts at disaster recovery did not occur until much later in modern history.

The exception was the Emergency Management Institute (EMI). Although the EMI training function was always considered part of preparedness, the senior-level, FEMA officials argued that its courses supported response and recovery. A new, FEMA office was to focus exclusively on response and recovery. Under the initial DHS organization (Figure 1-2), the Emergency Preparedness and Response directorate contained most of the pre-DHS, FEMA functions and staff. Under the Chertoff reorganization, EP&R was eliminated, and the director of, FEMA, who was formerly the undersecretary for EP&R, would become an office director.

Almost every community had a civil defense director, and most states had someone who represented civil defense in their state government hierarchy. By profession, these individuals were usually retired military personnel, and their operations received little political or financial support from their state or local governments. Equally often, their civil defense responsibilities were in addition to other duties. Federal support for these activities was vested in the Federal Civil Defense Administration (FCDA), an organization with little staff or financial resources whose main role was to provide technical assistance.
