Topic of your paper: Homeland Security/Emergency Manahemnet
You likely have some questions about the papers. First, I will tell you that the three are organized to accomplish several goals. Relay to me that you understand the basic concepts of Homeland Security/Emergency Management. You will not be able to cover everything, I guarantee it – and I am not expecting that. What I do expect is you to articulate thoughtfully the area you chose to present (not limited to and likely NOT your topics…the history of EM in the US, chain of command aspects, integration of various groups and functions through emergency support functions, legal aspects like legislation not law enforcement). As there are five pages, you should have at least five unique sources. You may use Hogan or any articles I have sent as well as information from your FEMA courses.
The Foundations Paper (15%) consists of an at least five page paper reviewing the basic principles of dis-aster management, with specific emphasis on public health and medical roles length [does not include the works cited page(s) that will be completed in MLA format]. This paper should show a comprehensive re-flection of the principles on the part of the student, while simultaneously using appropriate reference material for concept definitions. This paper in no way should mention the scenario of the second assignment as it will not be selected at this stage; it is intended for the student to demonstrate grasp of fundamental concepts of homeland security, emergency management, and public health interactions, while composing a solid technically grammatically accurate as well as format appropriate paper.
Papers must be typed on a computer and printed on standard white paper 8.5 inches by 11 inches, portrait.2. The text of the paper must be double-spaced using 12 point only.
