Case Study: Hurricane Katrina

No single disaster is more indicative of the need for emergency planning than when Hurricane Katrina struck the city of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast of the United States in 2005.

    3. What training and exercises were conducted to prepare for a hurricane prior to Katrina?
    4. Did the populace know what the emergency plan was prior to the arrival of Hurricane Katrina?
  3. Analyze Emergency Planning Lessons Learned from Katrina
    1. What were the major emergency planning failures that were uncovered by Hurricane Katrina?
