11/20 Emergency management is part of the social safety net across all phases from response to recovery.
As such, first responders do not rescue people who can evacuate themselves, they only rescue people
who need help. Recovery programs, however, seem to do just that. They provide an additional boost to
wealthy homeowners and others with less need, while lower-income individuals and others sink further
into poverty after disasters. In 2045, emergency management is equitable across the full spectrum,
including preparedness, recovery, and mitigation, with resources going to those who need them.
