The military has been activated on several occasions to assist with the public health response in disaster relief efforts. After reviewing the background readings, answer the following questions. Who requests the deployment of troops in a domestic disaster? (Hint – this can happen at the state or federal level.) What laws allow for domestic deployment? Specify who can use these laws to deploy troops. Who is in command of the military in a domestic emergency (keeping in mind the difference between the National Guard and active duty military)? What are some challenges that exist for emergency management and public health entities with the deployment of troops for a domestic emergency and what are some solutions to these?
