Abstract

The need for disaster preparedness planning in Iowa has been demonstrated by a history of natural disasters, particularly tornadoes and flooding. Although the state has an existing state emergency plan, contingency plans for specific hazards and county and departmental plans, past disaster experiences, along with the provisions of PL 93-288, make it a must to improve these plans to insure they are operational and effective. The lack of planning in several areas of PL 93-288 alone makes it impossible for state and local government to provide all disaster services available under the law.
