What are the issues you will address first?

Question Description
I’m studying for my Health & Medical class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 7 in your textbook.

Read through the emergency disasters below and select one to address for this discussion:

Scenario No. 1: “Dragon/Volcano Emergency Response”
Scenario No. 2: “Vaccine Gone Awry Emergency Response”
Scenario No. 3: “Hurricane Hunter”
Scenario No. 4: “Snowmageddon”
Scenario No. 5: “Zombie Apocalypse”
Imagine you are the director of FEMA using NIMS when this disaster occurs. Complete the following steps using the scenario you selected:

Develop a video, using the instructions below, delivering a public announcement that informs the population of what will be done to resolve the issue. Your video should be at minimum 4 minutes in length. Address these elements in your video:
Describe the nature of the situation.
Explain what FEMA and others are doing to mitigate the situation.
Explain what people need to do to stay safe or to get help in order to reduce panic.
Use an appropriate vocal tone to reduce panic and provide a solid explanation of the above elements. Review the Writing Center’s Presentation Tips (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to maximize your results. Preparing and delivering a clear message, like you would for a PowerPoint presentation, is also important in video presentations.
Instructions to record video:

In order to complete this discussion, you may use the native video tool in your classroom. Please review the Canvas Video Submission Instructions (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in order to get started. This guide will familiarize you with the tool and review how to record your video to the classroom.

As an alternative, you may use an external platform called Screencast-O-Matic (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Please review the instructions provided by the Screencast-O-Matic Quick-Start Guide (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in order to get started. This guide will familiarize you with the tool and review how to upload your video to the classroom. You do not need to develop a PowerPoint presentation. This discussion is meant to assess your communication abilities; therefore, the audio portion of the video or screencast is essential. If you elect to use the screencast option, you may simply use a picture of yourself reporting the above information in lieu of a PowerPoint. If you choose to use another video recording tool for your submission, please follow the guide instructions to upload an MP4 video file into your classroom using the same steps.

All submissions require an upload of the video to the classroom. Submission of a link to a video does not fulfill the submission requirements.

Think about the following questions while formulating your response to the public:

What are the issues you will address first?
Which organization is responsible for what? Where will you allocate your resources?
What public health concerns are the results of each of these events?
Which populations might be most at risk?
What are some of the long-term health effects of these events?
What other health concerns may arise from these events?
What will you say to the people, who are desperately awaiting your direction?
Scenario Response Due by Day 7: Imagine that you are the recipient of the public announcement made by your classmates. In responding to at least two classmates who used a different scenario than you, explain how you would respond and react to your classmates’ public announcement. Address these questions specifically:

Explain how you felt your needs were or were not taken care of based on the FEMA director’s statement.
Examine a few elements that you would add or remove from the announcement.
Week 2 Scenerio is what I would like to dsicuss.

Emergency Disasters Assignment

Emergency Disasters Assignment

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
