This paper discusses emergency management and its importance. It carefully defines the terms emergency and disaster. The author explains how the purpose of an awareness campaign is to look at natural disasters that can strike a community. It gives the fictional community of Los Gotto Feliz as an example. It?s a community in Central California, tucked in a valley, populated by fifty thousand people with a small service manufacturing industry (large machinery vehicles) and farmland (avocado ranching and nut farms). The community of Los Gotto Feliz is most commonly endangered by earthquakes and wildfires, which originate from nearby mountains and national forest. The author provides a step-by-step list of things to do in order to accomplish the goal of preparing a community for disaster.
From the Paper:"Since earthquakes and fires are the primary dangers to the Los Gotto Feliz community, it is our role to provide the means for individuals to protect themselves, their family, their home, business, and to give aid to others in their community. We know that the "nature of the community that is struck by a disaster many influence what happens during the warnings, impact, and aftermath stages". [and] qualities of communities may "include patterns of, and access to, communications; the view and trust of authorities' cultural and ethnic issues; how dependent and independent, rural or urban the community is" (Raphael, 22). The awareness campaign will promote disaster preparedness curriculum materials for classroom use; outreach to local community leaders through national partners; seminars for neighborhood associations; materials for school presentations; special seasonal disaster preparedness campaigns; special preparedness seminars for employees of business, industry, and other organizations. The City of Los Gotto Feliz Disaster Preparedness Program will include the beginning stages of developing a plan for providing appropriate public education for disaster response and recovery; and, implement training, guidance, organization, and structured information for communities to care for themselves, for a significant period of time, with very little assistance from local governmental emergency response services.
