Explain the disaster declaration process and role of the federal government in times of disaster.
Disaster declaration process and role of the federal government in times of disaster
In this unit, we explore the roles of the Stafford Act, National Response Framework (NRF) and National Incident Management System (NIMS) during times of emergencies. Together, their scope is broad, yet following any major disaster there is usually public outcry that not enough assistance is being provided by the federal government or that there is too much red tape in the assistance process.
If you or your home were to be impacted by a disaster, do you feel there is overlap or gaps in the federal assistance strategies and resources that would be available to you or your state? Explain your concern, and give an example of how it might personally affect you.
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.
Unit IV Blog
After reviewing this unit’s video, Module Two the Stafford Act, you will create a blog post that addresses the following. (Week IV Study Guide)
• Explain the disaster declaration process and role of the federal government in times of disaster.
• Identify the individual programs available to disaster victims through the Stafford Act.
• Give your opinion regarding whether individual and public assistance programs provided through FEMA help fulfill the federal government’s role and responsibilities during times of emergencies.
• Make at least one recommendation for change, and give an example of the anticipated effect.
There are two essentials to good blogging. First, remember that a blog should be conversational and be an extension of your own thoughts and opinions, not merely a list of facts. Your post should have a topic, have a purpose of presenting a point of view, and indicate an openness to dialogue by inviting comments. Since this class is your audience, you can assume a basic understanding of homeland security terms, phrases, and acronyms.
Be creative, while still meeting the requirements of the blog’s content listed above. You can add include text, images, links, multimedia, mash-ups, and attachments to your blog entry.
Your blog post should be a minimum of 1,400 words. While the format of your post is not required to be in APA style, keep in mind that you must provide strong evidence and/or references to support your opinions. References should appear at the bottom of your post.
Week IV study guide is attached for guidance.
