Below are links to websites, or in many instances, direct downloadable files for some of the source information used in creating Disaster Government.

But I'll warn you, it can take a lot of reading to find the really shocking information...or sometimes just the first page.

For all Presidential Executive Orders, I highly recommend the University of California-Santa Barbara's The American Presidency Project. It is virtually complete and searchable.

It's also worth your time to rummage through the Government Attic. They possess government files on virtual any subject one can imagine, including Continuity of Government related info.

The National Response Framework (NRF). This is the document the federal government (FEMA/DHS) uses as a guideline when responding to a disaster. Read it and try to make sense of it.

Tied to the NRF, this is the Basic Guidance for Public Information Officers when dealing with the media during an emergency/disaster

The Department of Homeland Security's "Preparing Makes Sense. Get Ready Now." public handbook

Link to FEMA's "Are You Ready? An In-depth Guide to Citizen Preparedness."

This document became available after the publication of Disaster Government and discusses the DoD's (limited) role under Posse Comitatus. It's the DoD's Defense Support of Civil Authorities
