Disaster and Emergency Services (D.E.S.) or Emergency Management is an integrated effort to prevent - or minimize the seriousness of - emergencies and disasters and to plan and coordinate the community's response to them should they occur. It requires establishing partnerships among professional emergency management personnel to prevent, respond to, and recover from disasters. Coordination is a key factor in establishing an emergency management program, and continual improvement saves lives and reduces losses from disasters.
