Azard & Vulnerability Analysis and Mitigation & Prevention

Hazard & Vulnerability Analysis

and Mitigation & Prevention

Introduction

The primary learning objective for this case is for the student to develop a sense or judgment as to the importance of the mitigation phase in emergency and disaster management.

Case M4:

You have been assigned the responsibility for developing the mitigation phase of the communitys Emergence Management Plan. Your supervisor gives you specific instructions that the Mitigation Phase should not overlap any of the other phases of the plan. You believe that your mitigation phase plan will fail and will not be accepted by responsible agencies unless it is better integrated throughout the other phases of the Plan.

1. Present an argument to your supervisor to convince him/her of the importance of integrating mitigation measures in the other phases of the EMP rather than just the mitigation phase? (A discussion related to the Hazard & Vulnerability Analysis and the mitigation and prevention of loss of property and personal injuries/death should be presented)
