Lobal Terrorism Emergency Plan Part I
Identify four areas where reactionary planning is necessary and four areas where resiliency planning is appropriate, and describe the risks associated with each area.
Part I of the Emergency Plan is part of the final course project that requires students to identify four specific areas where resiliency planning is an appropriate action and four specific areas where reactionary planning is an appropriate action. Students will begin by reviewing the demographic information provided for the example city (Metropolis, FL) to gain an understanding of the city for which they will be creating an Emergency plan.
Next, students will search for sample emergency plans already created by other cities and jurisdictions that are specifically designed to address potential terrorist attacks. Students are encouraged to conduct and Internet search using the phrase, ai??i??Terrorism Emergency Plans. It is recommended that students review a minimum of three different emergency plans to gain a wider perspective of the types of issues that government agencies consider when planning for terrorist attacks. Students should also review information related to Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (HIRA) provided by the Department of Homeland Security. A link to this website is provided below.
Using the information found in the sample emergency plans created by other agencies, the Department of Homeland Security HIRA information, and any other relevant information related to this topic, students must create Part I of the emergency plan that identifies four types of resiliency planning and four types of reactionary planning that would be appropriate to consider when creating an emergency plan for Metropolis, FL. For each identified area, students must (1) identify the potential risk area or concern that the planning will address, (2) explain why this potential risk area or concern is important and relevant to Metropolis, FL based upon its demographics, and (3) decide whether the component will focus upon a resiliency or reactionary planning approach.
Students must use references to other existing plans, information provided by the Department of Homeland Security or other relevant agencies, or any other reputable information available to support why the eight selected areas should be part of an emergency plan.
Only scholarly resources should be used. Sites such as Wikipedia, blogs, or other resources where information has not been peer reviewed must not be used.
