Assignment 1

Along with your photo, include the following information: photo will be uploaded in the drop box.

A discussion of the items in your home go bag – what is present and what is missing.

A brief explanation of the demographic considerations and potential disaster hazards in your area and why you included certain items.

Your family, pets, and living situation considerations and why you included certain items.

Are you prepared to help others in your community in the event of a disaster?

Assignment 2

For this paper you must cite and reference 2 sources. The paper should be 2–3 pages and written using current APA format. Your paper should address the following:

a. How would you prepare for the following situation?  (provide realistic examples and details for safety and survival)

(Scenario)

At this moment, you are sitting at home working on your WCU class. Suddenly, the National Weather Bureau sends an alert across your cell phone—a tornado is headed your way. You have 15 minutes before touchdown in your neighborhood.

What is your plan? This is a ‘shelter in place’ scenario, you cannot outrun the tornado. Identify a safe place in your home to take shelter.

You must include research. Cite and reference two sources and explain the recommended safety measures in a tornado emergency and how you would apply them to your specific living arrangements.

b. How prepared are you in the event of a disaster? Describe your level of disaster preparedness using specific examples and references to your “go-bag” and preparedness checklist assignments.

Example: “I am more prepared for a water-related disaster than a fire-related disaster even though I live in a highly secluded, forested area. I have a boat as transportation in the event of flooding, but I do not have rain barrels or fire barrier supplies on hand.”

Example:  “There were many missing items on my preparedness checklist. I realized that I do not own a flashlight. If I had to use my phone as a light it would drain the battery very quickly.

c. Reflect on how prepared you were before this class and compare it with how prepared you are now.

Have you acquired any new emergency items?

Do you plan to take any additional trainings or certification courses?

Have you shared your knowledge with friends and family?
