ABSTRACT
The author argues that coping with hurricanes such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005 is not just about having an appropriate emergency response and that it requires the cooperation between the public sector and the private sector. Instead of just focusing on the management of emergency response and evacuations on an ever-increasing scale, the scope of the emergency actions required should be minimized.
