A lesson in disaster management

Within minutes of the Jet plunging into Hudson, rescue operation was in full swing reports NYT:

 Soon, a small armada of police boats, fireboats, tugboats and Coast Guard craft converged on the scene, and some of them snubbed up to keep the jetliner afloat. Helicopters brought wet-suited police divers, who dropped into the water to help with the rescues.

This is commendable and I hope we in India can learn how to be respond quickly to disasters.
