Visit the Red Cross website (www.redcross.org (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.) and explore the resources for emergency preparedness. Choose one of the emergency preparedness topics (i.e., hurricane, tornado, flood, earthquake, or fire) and one area of need for preparedness (i.e., home and family, school and students, or workplace and employees) and then present a plan for preparedness that describes how one might prepare for one of these types of emergencies in one of the areas. For example, how would one prepare for a flood in the workplace or for an earthquake at a school?
Your paper should address each of the following:
- Identify the emergency preparedness topic you have chosen (i.e., hurricane, tornado, flood, earthquake, or fire) and the area of need (i.e., home and family, school and students, or workplace and employees) and briefly describe the surrounding circumstances.
- Apply the emergency preparedness topic to one area of need, presenting a detailed plan that could be given to the human services managers who will respond to the type of emergency and area of need you have specified.
Discuss and cite at least two of the assigned readings for Module 3 and at least one additional credible or scholarly source to support your analysis and positions.
