Choose one of the 3 scenarios listed below and write briefly describes the incident.You may select one of the topics for your paper:
1- A community of approximately 10,000 has been expose d to an unknown virus. It appears to be spre ad by contact. At present, only a small portion of the population is affect ed. Government leaders and health officials are contemplating community containment.
Firstly, Discuss how you, as the logistic chief, would supply and support emergency operations, what agencies would you seek support from, and establish points of distribution.
2- Severe storms have ravaged your rural community of 10,000. Fortunately, there are few deaths but many are displace d. Being rural, access to the community is limit ed and made worse by the storms.
Firstly, Discuss your immediate actions post-incident, and present a plan for short term sustainment of operations and support to population. Also, If a logistics pre-plan would be beneficial, include that in your discussion.
3- Your rural community of 10,000 main employer. A large agricultural chemical processing plant is struck by a large fire.
Due to the nature of the chemicals, the fire may last for days.
Further, Emergency Management has decided to tell citizens to shelter in place versus to evacuate.
The incident has drawn responders from a large area, and most arrive ill equipped for a sustained operation.
Further complicating the issue is water runoff from fire suppression into the town’s only source of water.
Finally, Discuss how you would support both the citizens and the providers while being aware of sheltering, along with limited movement because of the fire.
Lastly, Do not be concerned about the potential exposure- focus on the logistic support.
