Running head: EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS DRILL PART I Emergency Preparedness Drill Part I Mx Roxie Jordan Fabian Serrano Paul Villagran Erica Murrilo Hector Magdaleno University of Phoenix February 6, 2019 Center this properly. 1 EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS DRILL PART I 2 Incident Management Establishment Initial Response for Flood • Initiate flood alerts prior to flood. This will give the residents a chance to prepare for the flood. • Initiate flood warning to residents. The flood warning serves to notify residents to protect themselves and property from the flood. • Prepare evacuation of residents. The evacuation of residents is vital to sustain life. Incident Management Recent heavy rain has caused the North River to flood parts of the City of Mertzville. The Mayor has requested our team to set up a response to this disaster. Our incident management would establish a committee that would consist of: • Incident Commander to oversee as well as delegate tasks. • A HazMat officer since the river runs through downtown where dangerous chemicals are housed. • A public information officer to keep the public informed. • Safety officer to keep everyone safe. • A liaison officer to ensure every agency is on the same page. As well as the following sub-sections: • Operations section • Planning section • Logistics section • Finance and administration section EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS DRILL PART I 3 Demobilization of Resources The first teams to respond were the search and rescue, along with the police department. In this writing, a plan on how the demobilization of resources was done and the strategies used are discussed. In case of a severe flood, the response team needs to relocate routes for everyone to evacuate in a safely manner. Every response team has a leader. The leader is usually the head of all the activities in the group. He allocates duties to his team accordingly. This promotes efficiency during the rescue operation. Before handling any emergency, the response team must come up with a plan (Buhl, S, 2002). The plan will give all the details on how to evacuate the city, and rescue methods. The main aim in the plan is time; the team should approximate the time needed to rescue those who got stuck during the flood (MS, and Buhl, S, 2002). The plan should also indicate the challenges and how they would go about them. In this case, there has been heavy rains, and the main road to the downtown riverbed has been closed off, and citizens got stuck on the roof of buildings. The plan should assure the safety of the team including those being rescued from the downtown riverfront area. In this case, the team must evaluate the level of destruction from the flood, in order to know where to start first. This prepares the team on what to expect and what approach is to be used and the necessary level of professionalism. The plan should also ensure efficiency. This detail’s how fast, and with a lot of ease, those involved could be saved. A plan also provides controlled activity in all fields. In resource demobilization during emergencies, strategies are a crucial factor (Voigt, H. J, 2007). In this case of the North River overflow, it displaced all businesses and residences that are in one block radius of the river. The team should develop detailed tactics on how they could access the area. This is followed by assigning of resources. This entails: The level of expertise EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS DRILL PART I 4 required and the necessary supplies such as search and rescue, helicopters, swat teams, boats, etc. With an appropriate strategy, the team should be able to evaluate the possible outcome. Flood Recovery Approach Damage assessment • Identify Hazards caused by flooding i.e. chemicals, other toxics • Identify damage infrastructure, o Damage roads o Hospitals o Public Services i.e. electric, gas, water sewage • Housing Damage • Private companies and Business Restoration / Clean-up • Cleaning crew to drain and decontaminate affected areas • Clear roads and restore vital services e.g. electricity, gas, water and sewage • Restore operation Hospital and emergency centers Long Term Reconstruction • Create a long-term recovery plan • Secure government and private resources and funding • Reconstruction of infrastructure upgrade roads, bridges other. • New resilient commercial buildings and commercial revitalization • New Housing development EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS DRILL PART I 5 Evacuation Plan Though the flooding has devastated downtown and industrial parts of the town in which some warehouses contain hazardous chemicals. Because of the later, evacuating civilians quickly is paramount before the chemicals spread into more populated areas downriver and cause medical first responders to become overwhelmed. After declaring an emergency, the city can bring in first responders from neighboring jurisdictions. This would most definitely include hazmat teams, helicopters and watercraft. Watercraft may not be able to reach the more aggressive waters in the river but can be used in the flooded areas far enough from the strong currents. Medical Plan We must consider the hospitals proximity to the flooded area and weather it is at risk of losing power or other utilities. If the hospital is deemed at risk, then critical patients will be moved to hospitals safe from the flood waters. Patients that can be released will be released and no non-emergency patients will be admitted. Within the hospital, supplies will be moved upstairs if possible, to avoid rising flood waters, room will be made for anticipated patients brought from first responders.

How do you notify citizens or give better response and evacuation instructions? How do you deal with internal communications of those working in the explosive environment and may not be able to utilize radios/communication equipment? What are your plans for documenting the event for future training and response approaches? How can training be improved for better response to future emergency preparedness and incidents? You have the flexibility to improvise or realistically create information or details not included in the emergency management materials. Critical elements of this assignment focus on your team’s ability to understand differing ways and means to apply the emergency management process and approach to safely manage critical incidents.
