Activity Description
In this course, you examined a variety of threats and actions necessary to prepare for and respond to different types of disasters. Managers
always have to prioritize activities because resources are usually limited. That prioritization can have negative consequences if the event, with
a low likelihood of occurrence and a low priority for preparation, then occurs. In this assignment, consider that you are the city emergency
manager for your home town. Prepare a memorandum for the mayor that critiques the prioritization of resources to be applied in preparation
for various types of emergencies that might occur. Include outside research based on your local area if available to you. Address the following
points as a minimum:
Expected emergencies
Resources on hand
Resources needed from neighboring communities
Resources needed from outside the local area at higher levels of government
Support your memorandum with at least two (2) scholarly or professional resources. In addition to these specified resources, other
appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Length: 5-7 pages not including title and reference pages
Your memo should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new
thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where
appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
