Question Description

I need an explanation for this Environmental Science question to help me study.

You are the emergency manager in a medium-sized city, and your city manager has directed you to provide a 2-hour lecture to a combined meeting of the Citizen’s Police Academy and the Citizen’s Fire Academy.
