Description

Must have this book to complete discussion on the required reading:

The Historical Context of Emergency Management in the Haddow, Bullock, and Coppola text, “Introduction to Emergency Management”

Read Chapter 2: Natural and Technological Hazards and Risk Assessment.

In the “Conclusion” to Chapter 2 of the textbook, the authors state, “… a community needs to know and understand their risks if they are to effectively manage them” (p.68).

This is a two-part assignment. For Part 1, describe a natural hazard AND a technological hazard that you face today in your daily life or job. Provide a specific example of each to support your response.

For Part 2, research the Internet and find a graduate-level article or short video (20 minutes or less) that agrees or disagrees with the authors’ statement. Explain your position.

If you use an article for your research piece, provide at least one properly, APA-styled “in text reference citation,” including page number(s), in your response that identifies where you found support for your agreement or disagreement with the authors’ statement. You should also include a Reference List with a properly APA-styled source entry.

If you researched a video, the URL web address will suffice as long as you include a short statement as to how the video agrees or disagrees with the authors’ statement AND the approximate time it appears in the video.

Remember, there is a two-page maximum for this assignment. The first page should focus on Part 1 of the question. The second page should deal with Part 2 of the assignment. If you fail to provide an article or video to this assignment there will be an automatic fifty percent (2.5 point) reduction in your grade.

Natural and Technological Hazard Management
PART ONE
Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of natural and
technological hazards. While natural disasters occur as a result of a naturally occurring
phenomena's technological disasters are events which are caused by human activities. Recently,
there has been a rapid onset of extreme temperatures, which is one of the major natural disasters
that I experience (Haddow, Bullock, & Coppola, 2017). Of late there have not only been
incidences of heatwaves over summer but also cold waves during winter which have affected my
work life. The occurrence of heat waves has been characterized by extremely high temperatures,
