Unit 1 – Introduction and Overview of Disaster Exercises and Drills 2. Unit 2 – Comprehensive Exercise Program 3. Unit 3 – The Exercise Process Finally, two very short but important documents. The PKEMRA discussion can be found in the attached file and PPD-8 is found at the separate link titled PPD-8. Capstone Document is found in the attached file – Provides guidelines to getting started. FOCUS POINTS These first IS 139 chapters set the stage for everything we will do this semester. Focus on these basics of exercises and drills. Get confortable with the terminology. Get a sense of what it takes to go from one step (or buiding block) to the next. PKEMRA is the document that came out of Katrina. Many, many hours went into producing this “lessons learned” document. Finally, PPD-8 is a critically important document in emergency management. Read it over with an eye towards why the president wrote it and why we spend so much time studying it – The assignment of this week is to answer questions, as follows: Alpha Group – Questions 1,3 and 4. Bravo Group – Questions 2,3 and 4. 1. FEMA lists 15 functions in its Emergency Management Exercise Reporting System. FEMA defines a function as “an action or operation required in emergency response or recovery.” Any or all of those may be the primary or secondary focus of an exercise. Here’s where we get to have some fun. Choose one function and notify the class (and me) via email of your choice. Once selected, no one else may choose this function. Describe how your function would be used in a response. Again, feel free to draw from personal experience if you would like. Here is the list: ESF #1 Transportation ESF #2 Communications ESF #3 Public Works and Engineering ESF #4 Firefighting ESF #5 Emergency Management ESF #6 Mass Care, Emergency Assistance, Housing, and Human Services ESF #7 Logistics Management and Resource Support ESF #8 Public Health and Medical Services ESF #9 Search and Rescue ESF #10 Oil and Hazardous Materials Response ESF #11 Agriculture and Natural Resources ESF #12 Energy ESF #13 Public Safety and Security ESF #14 Long-Term Community Recovery ESF #15 External Affairs 2. An exercise program needs to be a comprehensive and progressive exercise. Discuss the elements of the exercise that define “comprehensive” and “progressive.” Hint – Think about the building block concept in exercise development. 3. Envision an imaginary emergency operations plan for a small rural hospital “Anywhere General.” As the new disaster planner for AG, you have been asked to review that plan and make recommendations for change. Using the knowledge you gained during Principles and Planning, write a brief (250-500 words) summary of that fictional plan. That summary – which you should address to AG’s Board of Directors and CEO – should include parts of the plan you think are adequate and areas you think should be modified. 4. Tell the class the topic you plan to use for your capstone and post the document Dr. Bail requires for capstone submission. (The document link is posted under Readings). 0 0 0 I will upload the CV, which is the 7th file, to do biography as we discussed before AND I will put the number of pages as one page because I don”t know how many pages we need but please cover the assignment regardless of number of pages. NOTE: I also put the number of references 3, BUT please use the appropriate number you need to do it and concentrate on the reading assignments of this week to be used. Best regards!
