HSE 303 WK 8 Responses

After you have created your new discussion topic, you are required to read and respond to a  minimum of two (2) of your classmates discussion topics.  Think of your responses in terms of a contribution to a dialogue, not a writing exercise or a chat room.  Elaborate a single idea and keep your post short but concise as if you were holding a conversation with your classmate(s).   Incorporate what you have learned from the weekly reading material and from your own real-world experiences.  Don’t forget to use proper APA citations and references whenever necessary.

Ariel: Scenario 2: You are an emergency manager in Kansas. Spring is right around the corner, and the possibility of severe weather will be increasing. What can you do to promote preparedness in your community?

Answer : I would community event on how to prepare for severe weather conditions. I would have local emergency preparedness fair where local emergency responses such as firefighters, EMT, new reporter, and other agencies like American red cross have free food, games and drinks. Provide weather alert systems for all residents to sign up from their mobile devices or tablet to be alerted of any local activities as technology has advanced and most individual aren't watching TV as often as we should. As always provide home emergency kits for free and during the events explain what essential items should be packed such as first aid kits, Important document, canned food, and medication such as Tylenol.

Tomesha: You are an Emergency Manager in Kansas. Spring is right around the corner, and the possibility of severe weather is increasing. What can you do to promote preparedness in your community? 

The first thing I would do would be create a plan for Kansas City residents as well the Emergency staff. Everyone would have their job title, duties, all contacts and important information needed to carry out their position. I would bring awareness through all social media platforms. The news, local and state. I will make sure the surrounding counties are on standby just in case of a storm. I would make sure all residents are all signed up to receive text alerts or some kind of communication notifications whether via text or emails. I would also make sure there is an evacuation plan is in place. Communication is very important. Everyone would have to have precise communication in order for all duties to be performed accurately as well as the evacuation process to be carried out.
