Go to Disaster in Franklin County: A Public Health Simulation. Refer back to Module 1 Home for directions.
Do the simulation. In this simulation, the learner will assume the perspective of various public health professionals responding to a natural disaster. They will make decisions on behalf of a county public health director, a public health nurse, an environmental health specialist, and other public health professionals. By approaching the emerging public health issues from these perspectives, the players gain a deeper understanding of the issues at hand, the decisions that colleagues in other disciplines face, and how those decisions impact his or her area of expertise.

Identify what mission area(s) of DHS this simulation applies to. Refer to the DHS Mission websites listed on the Home page.
Describe the DHS mission area “Ensure resilience to disasters.”
Explain how this simulation fits the mission area: “Ensure resilience to disasters.”
Assignment should be 3-5 full pages double-spaced, not counting the cover or reference page. Paper format: (a) Cover page, (b) Header, (c) Body. Submit your assignment by the last day of this module.
Relevance—All content is connected to the question.
Precision—Specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate.
Depth of discussion—Present and integrate points that lead to deeper issues.
Breadth—Multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues/factors considered.
Evidence—Points are well-supported with facts, statistics, and references.
Logic—Presented discussion makes sense; conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information.

Use strong credible sources—peer-reviewed references, government documents, and subject matter expert materials—to support your answer. Your paper will not exceed 5 pages (excluding cover sheet and reference page(s).
SIMULATION EXPERIENCE AND REVIEW – DISASTER
Throughout this Capstone course, the student will first be assessing and then improving the simulation. In the Cases, each paper will discuss the extension of a different mission area. In the SLPs, a presentation will be developed from the viewpoint of a key leader (<link is hidden> Incident Commander, Operations Chief, Logistics Chief).
Based on the Module 1 Case paper on the DHS mission area, “Ensure resilience to disasters”, prepare a presentation from the viewpoint of a key leader (<link is hidden> EOC Commander, Incident Commander, Operations Chief, Logistics Chief) to extend the disaster simulation. (Hint: Base the presentation from the simulation EOC briefing.)
Focus on expanding content of key leadership roles from the Case 1 simulation.
Include references to recent disaster examples and the impact upon the people, community, or region. The presentation can expand a briefing in the Case 1 simulation or be based on an additional leadership role.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Your PowerPoint presentation should include the following:
Sufficient length—about 8-10 slides.
A good overview.
Main issues covered (key leader presentation supporting the simulation extension).
A good mix of text and graphics.
Your presentation will be reviewed for:
Quality of content.
Adherence to a chosen format (<link is hidden> APA).
Grammar and punctuation.
