National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS)

What is Emergency Management?
Emergency Management is the process of preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from an emergency. Emergency Management is a dynamic process. Planning, though critical, is not the only component. Training, conducting drills, testing equipment and coordinating activities with the community are other important functions.
