Abstract (Summary)

This research examines the collaboration that took place between the American Red Cross and the City of New York in the development and dissemination prior to Hurricane Sandy, and looks at how that plan was implemented during the storm. It examines how the responsibility of government to care for its people influences response plans and how the government collaborates with non-profit agencies to care for those citizens in planning for and responding to disasters. The data for this research was collected through an online survey tool that was distributed to employees and volunteers of the American Red Cross, then compiled and analyzed. The results from the survey were utilized to understand how the disaster response plan was utilized and make recommendations for future responses.
