Question Description

Incident Command System (ICS)

On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew, a category-four hurricane, slammed into Dade County in South Florida. In the first few weeks after Andrew, it became evident the federal and local management of the disaster was uncoordinated, confused, and inadequate. In fact, Hurricane Andrew is often used as an example of what not to do regarding the holistic management of a natural disaster.

.

Prepare an 8–10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that reviews the shortcomings of the Hurricane Andrew response. Include in your assessment the five major management systems within the ICS process. Conclude by showing how you would incorporate the ICS process in your city if it were facing a natural disaster.

Submit your presentation in an 8–10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint
