EMP that addresses emergency communications, ICS locations, and use of GIS in disaster preparedness and response

a? What role do you anticipate that Geographical Information Systems (GIS) will play in your EMP? Should GIS be an important component of your EMP? Justify your position. (See )
a? What are the first steps that you would take to ensure that emergency messages be relayed to the appropriate personnel or agencies?
a? If communications fail how will you management resource management?
a? What exercises would you use to train personnel to relay messages?
