3) The need to assess as quickly as possible whether there are enough resources or not to cope with an event. During hurricane Katrina, many people were faced with the impossibility of evacuation prior to the hurricane due to the lack of public transportation during the incident. The weakness in assessing the impacts of the event in terms of needs to evacuate people forced the government to use more costly means (evacuation by helicopters or boats) to carry out the evacuation. In this context, it is important for government agencies at all levels to assess as quickly as possible the impact of an event, and from such an impact the foreseen needs in terms of resources to respond to the event efficiently and timely.

Have proposed an integrated risk governance mode (Figs. 12; Shi 1991, 2003, 2005; Shi et al. 2005a, b, 2006a, b). This mode clarifies the responsibility among the central, departmental and local governments and promotes an integrated governance system to deal with disasters. In this system, governments of all levels cooperate to realize the ‘‘vertical to the end and horizontal to the margin’’ integration. From the perspective of the disaster process, the integrated mode elaborates the overall planning before, during and after a disaster to realize the integration of disaster preparedness, emergency, recovery and reconstruction.
