Standards for local civil defense and disaster preparedness

*Department of US*

Defense Civil Preparedness Agency


These Standards for Civil Defense and Disaster Preparedness have been developed jointly by local, State, and Federal civil defense professionals. They are provided as an aid in implementing the major new emphasis of civil defense and disaster preparedness for the 1970’s.
This new emphasis aims at improving the ability of local governments toact swiftly and effectively to save life and preserve property if the community is threatened or hit by any kind of emergency or disaster — whether a peacetime emergency or enemy attack upon the United States. This requires making effective, coordinated use of all assets available to the community, from the executive talents of its top officials; to  its police, fire and other forces; to its ambulances, hospitals, and medical professionals; to shelters to protect its citizens.
