The goal of this project was to set standard criteria for evaluating the execution of a disaster response at the local, State, and Federal Government levels. This evaluation, which was based on the disaster responses to Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav, focused on improvements in decision making. This project's procedure consisted of developing a model of decisions made and analyzing them. It was determined that there is a need for competent leadership, conducting rehearsals, and more initiative at all government levels.
