As stated by Pope on page 44, knowing the key stages of response protocol, or "Stages of Disasters," is vital to the implementation of disaster plans. Lives could be compromised without the proper knowledge of the disaster stages.
Please respond to the following prompts:
Review the stages of a disaster on page 44 of the text and explain each stage, including how each stage relates to a catastrophic event.
What are the key protocols of each stage?
What agencies are involved in each stage?
Please have in text citations as well as a reference page if needed. Thanks
