ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's perspective regarding the significance of using traditional and non- traditional methods in communicating vital information within the community in a day-to-day basis and in times of an emergency. He emphasizes that the people should be aware of their surroundings and the constant threat of natural and man-made incidents that could occur anytime of the day. He also cites several events like the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Virginia Tech shootings in 2007. Further, he also discusses the disaster management of several Illinois agencies including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
