Research some current
events related to the course topics covered in Units 1–4 and post
at least two of these events to the Discussion Board. Within your
posting, describe how your chosen items tie to the course so far. You
may use the Kaplan Library or any other outside resource for your
research. My class is based on emergency mangerment unit 1
topic was Introduction and Planning Fundamentals unit 2 is Planning
Considerations and Mitigation unit 3 is Case Studies unit 4 is The
Planning Process and Preparedness
As outlined in the
Readings, communicating the need for preparedness can be a very
daunting task. During hurricane Katrina the local news channels
showed thousands of residents stranded at the Superdome. Some
theorists argued that the local, state, and federal governments
should have played a larger role in the evacuation process, while
others argued that the individual residents should have taken proper
precautions. Explore these arguments further in the Discussion. How
much of a responsibility for preparedness rests with the individual?
With the community? With the local, state, and/or federal government?
It is a recognized
principle that a plan involving the coordinated efforts of multiple
resources will produce the best results. The private sector is
emerging as an increasingly important component as a sector partner.
As an emergency coordinator, how would you recruit and involve
community and business sector partners in preparedness and response
programs and activities?
