ERRI recommendations concerning Katrina aftermath
CHICAGO, IL: ERRI spokesman and former emergency services chief, Clark Staten, today issued a recommendation concerning providing law enforcement, evacuation, and emergency medical services to the stricken neighborhoods of New Orleans. Staten said that the idea is one that worked in Los Angeles during the Rodney King Unrest, and during disturbances in Chicago following several Chicago Bulls victories. Staten said it might prove useful in New Orleans.
Staten said that the idea involves the use of "joint response task forces" which include a:
-  security element (law enforcement/military),
 EMS (medical) element, and a
 firefighting and rescue element.
