Emergency Management Manual

The Lake Washington Institute of Technology's multi-hazard Emergency Management Manual provides a realistic approach to problems likely to be encountered during an emergency. The Manual provides a comprehensive look at various emergencies and how LWTech plans to deal with them. It must be understood that the Manual is not all inclusive in its Emergency Management approach; rather, it outlines basic concepts for managing not only the specified emergencies, but allows for the flexibility and adaptation to encompass emergency response for much of what can happen. This manual is an evolving document that will change with the times to reflect new emergencies and how to manage emergencies, new or old.
