    Emergency managers focus on preparation for potential emergencies, disasters, and catastrophic events and coordinating the responses to those events. Emergency managers are the experts in the field of emergency management, and as experts, they are often called upon to provided information and advice to policy makers such as city managers, city councils, police chiefs and their staffs, fire chiefs and their staffs, and private-sector stakeholders.

    You are an emergency manager in a medium-sized city, and you have been asked by your city manager to provide the city council with some important information that will better facilitate its decision making on seeking and accepting state and federal grants, many of which have matching funds.
