This book examines the role of the private sector and its intersection with government, government agencies, and the public sectors in all phases of emergency management. With a particular focus on the areas in which government regulation and guidelines promote or encourage private sector involvement, the book also looks at best practices for public-private partnerships and some of the common pitfalls of the contracting model.
