The writer of this paper presents a report as the hypothetical Director of Emergency Services for New York City. The supposed aim of the report is for it to be presented to the legislature, supporting a request for funding to upgrade the local emergency plan. The paper begins with an outline of the function of an emergency planning office, within the context of the emergency operations during 9/11. It then looks at the purpose of an emergency plan for the future. It explains the directives and guidelines contained in the proposed plan and elucidates its three-step implementation program. The paper concludes with important considerations for the proposed plan's success.
From the Paper:"Before one can fully understand the need for a new emergency management plan one must have a grasp on what an emergency planning office does. An emergency planning office is charged with the responsibility of preparing for emergencies as well as acting once they occur. Emergencies can be caused by many factors including natural disasters, chemical spills and other emergencies that arise(Federal Emergency Management Association http://www.fema.gov/)."
