principal challenges facing disaster preparedness officials
Project description
Scenario: For the purposes of this question, you are an independent contractor who specializes in helping municipalities quantify and prioritize loss potential on large governmental structures when faced with the potential for a severe weather event, such as a flood, hurricane, or tornado. In this case, youve been asked by your local City Manager to evaluate the security of your largest structure or complex and to provide security recommendations based on your analysis. It may be a stadium, a water plant, an open reservoir, or even an emergency operations center. You pick the facility in your area and you pick the weather event for your area.
Question:
Using the Decision Matrix in Chapter 4 in the text (Broder, J. F., & Tucker, E. (2012). Risk analysis and the security survey (4th ed.). Waltham, MA: Butterworth-Heinemann. ISBN: 978-0-12-382233-8) , provide a brief descriptive summary of the principal challenges facing disaster preparedness officials in your area, in trying to effectively predict and measure the relative risk of potential damage from whatever weather event you have chosen. Make certain you adequately describe the environment (urban, rural, suburban, etc.) and that you include the specific risk in the real day-to-day environment. (Note the examples given on pages 31 and 32 in your text.)
