Unit 1 discussion

Part I: Introduce yourself to your classmates with your name, location, current employment, and future goals.

Do you think the United States is vulnerable to a flu pandemic today? Why, or why not? What has changed since the Great Flu Pandemic of 1918–19 that affects your answer? Give specific examples to support your perspective.

Unit 2 discussion

In Chapter 3 of the course textbook, David Butler considers whether the Texas City Explosion meets the description of a human-caused disaster resulting from the failure of complex systems.

Unit 3 discussion

According to the textbook, the Federal Disaster Assistance Act of 1950 (P.L. 81-875) defined the roles and responsibilities during natural disasters. Once the president issued a disaster declaration, federal relief resources could flow to the affected areas for response and recovery. The president would then delegate administrative control of relief efforts to the Housing and Home Finance Administration. This law also instituted the federal role in natural disasters as a supportive role, while instituting primary responsibility for disaster response and recovery with local and state governments. How had this changed by 1978? Why did it change? Do you agree with the change? Why, or why not?

The textbook describes Presidential Disaster Declarations and states that to some degree, they constitute a chronological record of the pain and suffering caused by the major focusing events that have occurred in the United States history. Consider the Presidential Disaster Declarations. Which two declarations seems to be the most important in a disaster situation? Explain your reasoning.

Unit 5 discussion

In this lesson, we learned that major catastrophes like Katrina require a disaster response and recovery capability that is both disciplined and agile. Recently, Hurricane Harvey, also a major Category 4 storm, impacted the Gulf Coast, not too far from where Hurricane Katrina made landfall.

In your opinion, how was the outcome of this hurricane response and recovery effort different from the outcome of Katrina? What differences did you see in organization (policy, structure, procedures) and agility (creativity, improvisation, and adaption) that contributed to this difference in outcome?

Unit 6 discussion

The media is often a considerable factor in how the public views the relative success or failure of the disaster response to major catastrophes like Hurricane Katrina. Do you think the media provides a good service to the public, or do you think the media is detrimental to the disaster response and recovery efforts? In your discussion, give an example to support your position.

Interview those in your commUnity to determine lessons learned and improvements that have come from major disasters that have occurred specifically since Hurricane Katrina. Has emergency management been affected based on any events? How?

What changes have there been in mitigation? Preparedness? Has your commUnity been involved in any major disasters? Describe the progression towards federal government involvement in disaster response and recovery during this period. Describe the stakeholders, emergency services participants, and how disasters were managed over the last 50 years. Be sure to cite your sources.

Unit IV Scholarly Activity


Look at the events from 1979–2001 in your textbook on pages 132–133. During this period, there were a multitude of events such as hurricanes, flooding, and earthquakes that required a Presidential Declaration for assistance in that particular state.

Create a table similar to that on pages 132–133 that includes events from 2002–current year. The table should include the following information:

You may use Word or Excel to create your table. Include at least five events in your table. You may find these websites helpful in your research:

Next, write a summary that coordinates with the five events in the table. In your summary for each disaster, you should cover the following information.

Correlate each disaster listed in the table to the implementation of disaster-focused improvement for that event. In other words, what did we learn as a nation when the event occurred?

Was the United States prepared for this event?

Did our disaster response meet the needs of the commUnities impacted by the event?

Were special programs, resources, or monies created to better prepare for another event similar to this one?

Describe how the stand up of FEMA changed emergency management and disaster response.

Your document should be at least three pages in length (including the table you have created). If you created the table in Excel, be sure to place that chart in your Word document. You may do this by using the Snip It Tool or taking a snap shot of the chart. You must include at least three sources in your research, and the information should be cited and referenced in APA format.

Final Exam


Why does it seem that disaster response and recovery mistakes continue to repeat themselves, often in the same locations? Describe how the tragic response to Hurricane Katrina reflected similar failures in the past. What can be done to stop this repetition?

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


Pick one of the following key focusing events, and describe the events that led to the disaster, key lessons learned, corrective actions, and any significant impacts to politics, emergency management practices, laws, policy or regulations that occurred as a result: Mississippi Flood of 1927, Great Dust Bowl of 1930's, Texas City Explosion of 1947, or the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918.

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


The textbook discussed one important aspect of major focusing events and the political issues that can affect response and recovery efforts. In major catastrophes, such as Hurricane Katrina or the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, political controversies and agendas may cause independent actions by lawmakers that detract from disaster response and recovery efforts. Discuss the dynamic that causes this phenomenon, and describe what actions can be taken to reduce the likelihood of this occurring or would minimize the impact.

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


Describe the formation of DHS. What changes to DHS and FEMA were made following Hurricane Katrina? Why?

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


Describe the communications confusion problems that inhibited effective response and recovery from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. What caused these problems and what actions would you recommend to prevent similar communications confusion in future major focusing events.

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


Describe the crisis management difficulties in response to the BP Deepwater Horizon. What were the competing directives that could be considered governing for this disaster? What problems did this cause in execution of response and recovery actions? In your view, which directive should have been invoked, and why? Has this competing directive gap been rectified?

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.
