Disaster Response


Public health officials can play a huge part in disaster planning and emergency preparedness.
Analyze disaster response and emergency preparedness:
• Identify nursing roles and responsibilities during each phase of disaster management. Consider:
o Planning
o Preparedness
o Response
o Recovery
• Evaluate your community or state’s plan for preparedness and disaster management:
o Does it include provisions for each phase of preparedness and disaster planning?
o Does it clearly account for community needs?
o Does the plan include evidence of thought beyond the written report?
o Is there evidence of a record keeping system for resources, treatment, and identification of victims?
o Are there redundancies built into the plan should one option fail? Are backup plans in place?
• Analyze the plan for addressing mass casualty situations.
Include at least one peer-reviewed and one evidence-based reference, and an APA-formatted reference page.
