This chapter is concerned with the response to disaster. It takes a wide, forward-looking view, recognising that an effective response will depend not only on actions immediately prior to, during and in the aftermath of a disaster but also - importantly - on pre-existing plans, structures and arrangements for bringing together the efforts of government and voluntary and private agencies in a comprehensive and co-ordinated way. Since a whole spectrum of emergency needs is involved, such efforts necessarily go well beyond those required to cope with routine emergencies.
