County Emergency Management Protocols
- Never Assume.
- All Disasters are Personal.
- All Disasters are Local - and keep the response that way as long as possible.
- Expect the Worst; It has already happened - you just haven't discovered it yet.
- Bad Things never happen when you expect them.
- Never concentrate on a specific disaster; a different one will sneak up and bite you.
- A Good Emergency Manager is a little paraniod and a little pessimistic.
- Things are never as easy as you think they are going to be.
- If you don't like the answer you expect to hear, don't ask the question.
- If I knew what I was doing, I probably wouldn't.
