For this assignment, you will evaluate the efforts undertaken by your community to identify hazards and risks. Conduct an Internet search for the local hazard mitigation plan, emergency operations plan, or even the general development plan that identifies hazards that your community faces. Your evaluation will be at the local government level—either municipal or county. Do not evaluate state-level efforts.
After you have completed your research, write a paper that addresses the components listed below.
- Discuss the completeness of the plan in identifying hazards in your community.
- Discuss how the hazard mitigation activities of various sectors support the whole community approach.
- Evaluate the commitment of the community to keep the plan up-to-date.
- Share what improvements you believe can be made to the plan and the roles that the government and private sectors may play in risk management.
If the plan is not available online, retrieve a copy from the person at the local government agency that is responsible for this requirement. You will cite this information in your paper.
Your paper must be at least two pages in length, not counting the title or reference pages. Your paper must adhere to APA format.
