ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Fixing the fatal flaw in emergency planning," by Roz D. Lasker, which appeared at www.cmaj.ca. The author reflects on the emergency response plans in the U.S. He notes that it is a fundamental flaw to develop plans without integrating the knowledge of people who must be protected. Accordingly, the author suggests the use of "Redefining Readiness" process, which offers a guidance to involve community residents in preparedness planning.
