Another segment, “Government Links” will connect you to Government and Government Recommended Sites”, provides advice and links to disaster and business planning sites plus other government resources including:
This segment also includes information on sites recommended as a resource by government agencies. For example, the Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response Association (DERA) http://www.disasters.org/dera/dera.htm , is a membership organization founded in 1962 as a nonprofit association linking professionals, volunteers and organizations active in all phases of disaster preparedness and emergency management. DERA is a worldwide association and membership information is available at http://www.disasters.org/dera/member.htm
