HSM 315 Week 5 Final Paper
Understanding the intricacies and challenges of emergency planning is not possible without actually undertaking the preparation of an emergency plan. During this assignment, students will develop a comprehensive plan for a town or city of their choice using the FEMA Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101. Develop your plan using:
- Real attributes, such as critical infrastructure within the town or city when developing the plan.
- Various special needs populations (i.e., hospitals, schools, retirement facilities, populations requiring
- Natural hazards (i.e., hurricane, tornado, flooding, or wild fire) when developing the plan.
The plan for your jurisdiction will contain a basic plan and a minimum of five annexes to include:
- Functional annexes
- Supporting annexes
- Hazard/threat/incident specific annexes
You must use at least eight sources in addition to the course textbook when developing your research and analysis. Some of these are:
Continuity of Government & Continuity of Operations. (2003). Emergency planning guidance for a consolidated approach [PDF file].
U. S. Department of Homeland Security. State and local government continuity of operations planning: Training, tests, and exercises [PDF file].
