Abstract : This paper explores problems related to emergency management in the United States since the creation of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), particularly concerning relationships between FEMA and state governments. A questionnaire concerning various facets of these relationships was forwarded to all state emergency managers. Thirty-six responses were received and evaluated, with the author then providing his conclusions and recommendations concerning the subjects covered in the questionnaire. The author then discusses the larger policy problems in emergency management, and provides his personnel broad recommendations for the future of emergency management as a profession. (Author)
