Experience from history has demonstrated the value of contingency planning to meet the exigencies of disasters. Although no abstract plans are ever likely to match specific circumstances that suddenly confront disaster managers, such plans provide a vital starting point. Without them, panic and paralysis may set in, if disaster strikes. In such a situation, the first stage in the management of a disaster – that of giving outline direction and guidance within a tight time frame can easily be slowed down. Meanwhile, the crisis escalates and may become increasingly difficult and expensive, in terms of lives and money to resolve.
