This has been attributed to the disaster myth that panic is a likely response and that panic following a call for evacuation might cause more deaths and injuries than would the disaster itself. Principles of disaster planning (chapter 7) o Disaster planning should focus on a local response with federal and state support. Planners should establish relationships with a variety of stake holders who can contribute to the plan by understanding their agency’s assets, capabilities, and limitations and their familiarity with the needs of the community.
