Question Description

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 7 in your textbook.

Read through the emergency disasters below and select one to address for this discussion:

Imagine you are the director of FEMA using NIMS when this disaster occurs. Complete the following steps using the scenario you selected:

  • Develop a video, using the instructions below, delivering a public announcement that informs the population of what will be done to resolve the issue. Your video should be at minimum 4 minutes in length. Address these elements in your video:
    • Describe the nature of the situation.
    • Explain what FEMA and others are doing to mitigate the situation.
    • Explain what people need to do to stay safe or to get help in order to reduce panic.
  • Use an appropriate vocal tone to reduce panic and provide a solid explanation of the above elements. Review the Writing Center’s Presentation Tips (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to maximize your results. Preparing and delivering a clear message, like you would for a PowerPoint presentation, is also important in video presentations.

Instructions to record video:

In order to complete this discussion, you may use the native video tool in your classroom. Please review the Canvas Video Submission Instructions (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in order to get started. This guide will familiarize you with the tool and review how to record your video to the classroom.

As an alternative, you may use an external platform called Screencast-O-Matic (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Please review the instructions provided by the Screencast-O-Matic Quick-Start Guide (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in order to get started. This guide will familiarize you with the tool and review how to upload your video to the classroom. You do not need to develop a PowerPoint presentation. This discussion is meant to assess your communication abilities; therefore, the audio portion of the video or screencast is essential. If you elect to use the screencast option, you may simply use a picture of yourself reporting the above information in lieu of a PowerPoint. If you choose to use another video recording tool for your submission, please follow the guide instructions to upload an MP4 video file into your classroom using the same steps.

All submissions require an upload of the video to the classroom. Submission of a link to a video does not fulfill the submission requirements.

Think about the following questions while formulating your response to the public:

  • What are the issues you will address first?
  • Which organization is responsible for what? Where will you allocate your resources?
  • What public health concerns are the results of each of these events?
  • Which populations might be most at risk?
  • What are some of the long-term health effects of these events?
  • What other health concerns may arise from these events?
  • What will you say to the people, who are desperately awaiting your direction?

Scenario Response Due by Day 7: Imagine that you are the recipient of the public announcement made by your classmates. In responding to at least two classmates who used a different scenario than you, explain how you would respond and react to your classmates’ public announcement. Address these questions specifically:

  • Explain how you felt your needs were or were not taken care of based on the FEMA director’s statement.
  • Examine a few elements that you would add or remove from the announcement.

Week 2 Scenerio is what I would like to dsicuss.

HCA 415: Community and Public Health Online Scenario No. 2: “Vaccine Gone Awry Emergency Response” The potential of handling situations that seem like Science Fiction is more likely today than ever before. In this particular scenario, we manufacture a different reality that could occur. Although this exercise has never occurred in nature, the principles of this week’s teachings still apply. Students still will have to apply their knowledge of emergency response and preparedness and the interactions and coordination between various organizations. The Scenario: It is December 15th and one of the nation’s largest research facilities, which coordinate efforts to tackle the annual influenza virus, just discovered that a vaccine released in September had mutated into a deadly injection. Half of the doses of the synthetic vaccine have been found to mutate when contacted with the body’s T-cells within 30 days of injection, causing severe acute issues that start off with vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, and headache. Within 3-5 days after these initial symptoms, the mutated vaccine then attacks the nervous system, causing paralysis and/or death. Paralysis was seen in 256,987 cases spread over several states between days 3 and 5 of initial symptoms; Death was seen in 54,267 cases on either day 5 or 6 after initial symptoms. Not all who were paralyzed died, but remain in a paralyzed and/or comatose state. The discovery was made after thousands of reports were made to the CDC of this mystery disease, which (through epidemiology) was then traced to the mutated vaccine batch. This particular facility manufactured and distributed the vaccine to states within the northeast and mid-west regions of the nation. Basically, the vaccine was distributed to 21 states: Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, North Dakota and South Dakota. Case Details: Distribution to 21 states Only the second half of the vaccine batch was contaminated, but the vials were mixed when packaged, therefore, there is no means of knowing which vials contain the infected vaccine. Initial illnesses discovered in 9 states: Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, Kansas, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Indiana, Iowa (45.9 million people in these 9 states) As of December 15 – Total sicknesses reported = 2,435,627 million people across 5 states (Ohio, Maine, Minnesota, Iowa and Indiana (5% of the total population of the 9 states total) HCA 415: Community and Public Health Online As of December 15 - Paralysis patients = 256,987 cases (1% of the total population of those 9 states; 11% of those who were reported sick within the aforementioned 5 states) As of December 15 – Deaths from those paralysis patients = 54,267 cases (21% of those who succumbed to paralysis) The vaccine was not available to the public until October but had been given out from October 1 through December 15, at the time they discovered the mutation. As of December 15, 75% of the vaccine was given to individuals in the population; the remaining 25% is on its way back to the CDC for analysis and eventual destruction There is no counteractive drug available yet, but the CDC is diligently working on it. They will have more details when the remaining vaccines arrive the next day (Dec. 16) Bioterrorism was not yet ruled out in this case Your Review: What do you tell your public? Factor out the issues and follow protocol to formulate your response to the discussion question and public service announcement. ...
