The widespread impact of a catastrophe makes it one of the most important topics in emergency management today. A catastrophic incident is defined by a sudden event, which results in tens of thousands of casualties and tens of thousands of evacuees; response capabilities and resources of the state and local jurisdictions will be overwhelmed; characteristics of the precipitating event will severely aggravate the response strategy and further tax the capabilities and resources available to the area; life saving support from outside the area will be required, and time is of the essence; likely to have long-term impacts within the Incident area as well as, to a lesser extent, on the Nation.
