Description

EP 870-1-70. Situation Desperate begins with the first federal disaster assistance, which was aid given in 1812 to Venezuela after an earthquake. It traces the evolution of the mission through several more early emergencies until the  U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' first official disaster mission in 1882 during a Mississippi River flood.

The book then chronicles the Corps' disaster response until 1950 when Congress passed the Disaster Relief Act. It is illustrated with dozens of dramatic action photos dating to the earliest days of photography, many never before published.

Members of the military, specifically the Engineers Corps, as well as first responders such as law enforcement, firefighters, and EMTs, would find this book interesting.
