1) Initial response
2) Incident management/establishment including ICS Org. Chart
3) Demobilization of resources
5) Recovery approach to the Winter Storm emergency management scenario
Create a 15-20 slide PowerPoint presentation detailing your learning teams’ initial emergency response, incident management (ICS) establishment, and overall approach to the emergency management scenario. Your presentation must include the following:
· An overview of the emergency management incident
· Initial response, roles, and assignment of first responders (patrol officers, fire, ems)
· The full range of Incident Command System (ICS) including:

Answer the following questions at the end of your presentation:
· Should there be national standards for emergency management operations plans at large-scale sporting events?
· How do you notify citizens or give better response and evacuation instructions?
· How do you deal with internal communications of those working in the explosive environment and may not be able to utilize radios/communication equipment?
· What are your plans for documenting the event for future training and response approaches?
How can training be improved for better response to future emergency preparedness and incidents?
You have the flexibility to improvise or realistically create information or details not included in the emergency management materials. Critical elements of this assignment focus on your team’s ability to understand differing ways and means to apply the emergency management process and approach to safely manage critical incidents. These incidents often involve tough decisions including assignments, personnel, equipment, training, and other factors affecting employees.
