You are the director of the Office of Emergency Management in Pleasantville City U.S. and the mayor has requested that you present the latest Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) at the next council meeting. City officials are concerned about being able to respond to a major earthquake because the neighboring city of Blissville was recently hit by an earthquake and they were not prepared.
This is a critical presentation because you have asked for a significant increase in your EOC budget. For your presentation, outline an EOP for an earthquake that includes the following information.
- Executive Summary
- Introduction and Overview of the Environment
- Emergency Management Elements
- Community Plan
- Response Plan
- Communications Plan
- Support Documents
- Emergency Call Lists
- Resource Lists
In the presentation, analyze the potential magnitude that an earthquake can have on a city, and the resources required to meet the response demands, including federal, state, and local first responders, secondary responders, as well as three (3) or more community resources. Also identify vulnerable populations within your community such as, nursing homes, schools, etc.
Evaluate the potential response to the incident, assessing the effectiveness of federal, state, and local first responders, secondary responders, as well as three (3) or more community resources required to meet the response demands.
The presentation should be 15–20 slides (excluding title slide and references slide).
