This article examines the importance of communication among agencies which play a part in emergencies and of interagency coordination in today’s turbulent environment. Human beings have still been experiencing many natural and biological disasters in the world. These disasters gave many tough lessons to public managers and they experienced many difficulties in coordinating disaster response efforts. Extensive communication must be performed efficiently by organizations which take decisions during emergencies. Even if, hierarchical networks do efficiently in routine conditions, they function inadequately in dynamic settings of emergencies. In short time, it’s survival for the network to keep its interoperability as not obtaining any failure. Therefore, mutual collaboration and understanding for the future needs of disaster response efforts must be expanded by public health and law enforcement institutions as illustrated with the USA case in the article.
