Should a contingency plan not be created, catastrophic results may occur. It’s evident that every day will not be the same and the likelihood of unforeseen events are typical to take place. Risk identification is a major step in the production of the plans. There may be a history of an issue that needs to be looked at. You may need to create a potential issue and work through the consequences of this happening. There may even be known problems that you are expected to face. It’s important to look at all scenarios and be ready for the worst.
Based upon the research of two different emergency management strategies, we will compare and contrast these two plans in order to understand the developmental process and how these play out during different scenarios. The first plan we look at will be the DMA 2000 Multi-Jurisdiction, Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan for Nevada County. This particular plan incorporates the jurisdiction of Grass Valley, Nevada City, Truckee, California Department of Forestry, U.S. Forest Service, and various special districts

Emergency Operations Plan Roland Brown University of Phoenix Critical Incident Management CJA/560 Ian Moffett November 22, 2010 Emergency Operations Plan Emergency planning has changed very much since the 9/11 attacks. Law enforcement agencies focus more on prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. With planning and efforts made by law enforcement agencies, the law enforcement community can provide a comprehensive emergency management and security program (EMHSD/MSP, 2009).
This includes development of written plans and procedures to ensure critical operations are maintained. Preparedness includes identification of essential supplies and actions, critical positions, specific roles, responsibilities, orders of succession and delegation of specific authorities, and communication. The most important aspect of emergency planning is for the safety of the staff during an emergency. One or more secure location should be identified for staff during an emergency. Communication methods must be identified and tested between locations. Mutual aid agreements and emergency aspects of vendor contracts should also be reviewed as part of this process. It is also very important to exercise all sections of your plan (PublicRescourceOrg,

This plan, which is updated every five years, provides County officials and emergency responders with a framework for preparing for, responding to, and recovering from major emergencies and disasters. When the plan is activated, emergency response agencies are integrated into a common emergency management organization.
The first step in the emergency process as stated in the introduction is to form a collaborative planning team that will take the emergency situation head on. The team must understand emergency planning as well as the ability to collaborate on an intellectual level with other team members. Each member must have the same goal as well as objective. These objectives include providing safety for people, property as well as facilities. The members must be comprehensive, which includes provisions to assess the severity of potential hazard. The team will then move on to take steps to eliminating the disaster or problem. In conclusion, the collaborative planning team must understand the four fundamental theories of disasters. This serves to develop the most effective plan or process for disaster relief. The four fundamental theories of disasters include acts of fate or God, acts of nature or natural disasters, joint effects of nature and society and social constructions.
Disasters of varying degree, natural or manmade, can happen at any time in any area. It is imperative that the necessary emergency preparedness plans are in place and responders are properly trained. While disasters can take on a variety of forms, the plan should be inclusive of all possible threats in the surrounding areas. Public safety and healthcare providers must work together to ensure that they have a cohesive plan of action. They must plan how resources will be delegated as soon as an emergency is announced. Disasters are inevitable but planning reduces panic and confusion, which allows response personnel to react accordingly.
In this module, I have learned thus far that it takes multiple units from Emergency Management divisions and also public service divisions to fully handle a disaster. In this writing assignment, I will be discussing about Journalism and how it is can effect the outcome of a major event, such as a disaster. Journalism in today's society is crucial for the public and also for the teams that are activated to handle such terrible events or disasters. It has come a long way today with the invention of I-phone's, internet, social media and also news media. Without media coverage and new advanced technology about hurricanes, disasters, or event events that may harm our nation would be indescribable to innocent people in our nation. Take September 11th 2001 for an example. The media coverage
