Devise a realistic hazard scenario

Devise a realistic hazard scenario

Business Law and Ethics
The actual document you prepare should be thought of as the one you would use if conducting a high-level executive briefing of either military and/or civilian emergency response executives.

You may want to consider reporting information that is both research/historically oriented and practical situation oriented in that it provides a venue for making recommendations to senior decision-makers (the people you are briefing).

During the presentation of an actual executive briefing, you may be asked to provide both an historical aspect, also known as background profile, and then also a recommendation for action. For the purposes of the Research Paper consider the expectation that you are expected to make recommendations for action. After all, recommendations are needed when future planning is to be effectively developed.

To tie together the sequential steps required to effectively pinpoint and gauge the potential effects of hazard, each student will, beginning as early in the course as possible, produce an Executive Risk

Assessment and PowerPoint Presentation (ERAP) of sufficient quality that it could be used as the basis for developing subsequent risk mitigation plans and programs.

Drawing on available hazard descriptions (FEMA and other sources), you are to first:

1. Devise a realistic hazard scenario (including geographical location), and then

2. Gather data necessary to develop likelihood-of- occurrence estimates, vulnerability assessments, and projections of losses.

These efforts will be used to produce a risk assessment briefing paper and PowerPoint, due to be posted in DRAFT form no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 7. (This Dropbox Basket is linked to Turnitin.com). The totality of this presentation should summarize significant findings and clearly identify the affected communities (and/or areas, regions).

Briefing materials should also specify the EADP (emergency actions and disaster preparedness) agencies to which the information is to be forwarded for further action (including incorporation into contingency and disaster response plans, the employment of risk mitigation measures such as amendments to building codes, zoning ordinances, etc.).
