Unit 2 Assignment
For this Assignment, you are the EOC Director in your own community. The city council has asked that you make a presentation to them on the readiness of the community’s emergency agencies to respond to a major hurricane (Category 3 or greater). The city council wants to know the processes you will follow to enlist other cities, counties, the state, or the federal government if needed during this type of emergency.
In your presentation identify, the resources that are available within your own community; assets available throughout neighboring cities, the county, state, and the federal governments; and infrastructure organizations such as, public utilities, hospitals, public health, etc. Identify three or more private sector resources that might be required during the emergency. Use the internet to research the resources available in your city, state, and in the federal government.
Then distinguish the roles of all of the organizations identified, and break down the specific needs that each organization will fulfill based on an emergency involving a hurricane (Category 3 or greater). Discuss how each organization identified will respond to the hurricane both independently and in collaboration with the other organizations you have identified.
Your presentation should be 15 slides in length (excluding title slide and references slide).
