Emergency Planning CT #1
Option 1: Assessing Past Disaster Response
Chapter 3 identifies three major focusing events that occurred between 1927-1950; the Great Mississippi Flood, Dust Bowl, and the Texas City explosions. Identify the inadequacies of response to one disaster and discuss how improved planning and policy could mitigate or improve emergency response efforts for a future disaster. Write a 2-3 page paper, well-written and in conformity with the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. In addition to the textbook, cite at least three scholarly sources.
Note: The Endnotes at the end of each textbook chapter are excellent resources. The CSU Librarian can assist you in obtaining these articles.
