There is  a lot of discussion about most of these points in the Search 
and Rescue  world.
There are many Internet sites - start with the FEMA site, and follow  links.
May I send your letter to my SAR contacts? - The answer may be  delayed 
for a couple of weeks because I am about to start packing for my  trip to 
chamonix etc.

I agree that those who support the TOP DOWN management style have these  
comments in their documents, but that does not help the LOCAL person who has  
never heard of them.    It is NOT the outside search and rescue  persons, nor the 
FEMA persons who make or break the local management of a  disaster situation.  
  I now have gotten up close and personal  with the role of each agency and 
each person in a major disaster, rescue,  relocation, etc.     It is NOT the 
outside persons who are  the most helpful and often not even needed.   Disaster 
management is  LOCAL via an ICN (Integrated Collaborative Network)
