The Role of Homeland Security Information Bulletins within Emergency Management Organizations

Abstract: 

Homeland security information bulletins from governmental, commercial, and non-governmental providers are an important source of threat information within local emergency management organizations. However, systematic assessment of how these bulletins are received and used by one emergency management organization reveals that process changes may enhance the contributions that homeland security information bulletins can make to emergency preparedness.
