An essential element to any Emergency Plan is the completion of a risk and hazard assessment based upon the characteristics of the jurisdiction that plan is being created for. Every student will complete a risk and hazard assessment for the jurisdiction they selected using the assessment tool provided to them. This assessment must contain not only numerical values but also written explanations for the various assessment entries, as outlined below.
Review the emergency plan, as well as the appendices to the plan, to determine the primary vulnerabilities and hazards to your particular jurisdiction.
You should elaborate on these particular vulnerabilities/hazards in a 3-page narrative form paper. The BBBB of the assessment tool below used to rate the severity of the vulnerability/hazard, shown below is optional.
This assignment submission should be three pages in length double spaced. In-text citations and a reference list should be included in this assignment. A minimum of three source citations is required.
Use paragraph, or narrative style writing, and make use of in-text citations to support your main statements, or most essential statements made, be sure that your in-text citations and your reference list (at the end of the paper) are both in alignment with proper APA 6th edition citation form and style.
