    Default The emergency management in USA

    The Civil defense in Saudi Arabia is the one of the governmental bodies that is intended to provide rapidly assistances to citizens in emergency cases. However, these efforts need convenient coordination and cooperation between many of governmental bodies to fulfill their goals, which are divided into specific tasks for each one of these bodies to do. My question is, which is the govermental body in USA that is responsible of emergancy management?

    Emergency management is done at the local, county, state and federal levels.

    FEMA, AKA Federal Emergency Management Agency is our federal level.

    States have their EMA offices, as well as counties, towns, etc

    When most state Emergency Operations Centers are activated, they include reps from all state agencies, as well as external groups.

    Yeah, he might have to go look on FEMA's web page to get the same information.....

    Really?

    I have to think that if he really were up to no good he would have,

    a. A better source than here.

    b. Sense enough not to claim to be from another country.

    c. Pick a country that is not an ally.

    I certainly understand that there are many other sources for him to find information from, but why make it easy?? Besides, if he was dumb enough to come on here and ask a question that any Junior Probationary Explorer Terrorist would already know the answer too, there's no telling what he might ask. Just sayin'

    Because to anyone not an active member of this forum, it may appear that its an actual source of information.

    Thank you for your rapid answer and for your attention.
    I understand from your answers, that a commander, who work in American fire services, focuses his interests on one task and there are other commanders have tasks to supervise in emergency cases. Whereas, Saudi Civil Defense Officers have two tasks in the same time because they deal with regular fire incidents and prepare contingencies plans for disaster cases!!!

    While buff jumped the gun, I think your assumption is just as incorrect.

    Seriously? First of all we have no idea what the origins are. Secondly, if it's really SA, they'r our ally. Lastly, even if they're not, it's not as if we're talking about any national secrets here...

    I understand what you're saying Buff, but, really, you should have left it in your head, and not put it to the keyboard.

    Too late. As part of the canuckistani resistance front, I've already funneled all the information in this forum to our secret operatives in Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Iceland, Finland, and Norway.

    Expect a really disorganized, partially frostbitten uprising to occur in at least 37 of the continental United States anytime now!

    Hey, can someone post the plans for the death star?

    My apologies. There was this little thing that happened in NYC on September 11, 2001 (among other incidents worldwide) that kind of makes me suspicious of anyone from the middle east. Perhaps I am paranoid, but that's better than dead.

    I know the feeling. An incident in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995 has made me deeply wary of white Americans.

    I understand also. An incident back in 1981 has made me deeply wary of women. (Still love most of them though)
