pritorizing and evaluating

  • Prioritizing and Evaluating

    Competencies Addressed in This Discussion

    • Competency 1: Apply emergency planning procedure to critical incidents
    • Competency 3: Specify evaluation techniques for emergency management response effectiveness.
    • Competency 4: Correlate appropriate emergency management response to hazards and threats

    Introduction

    For this discussion you will review the four phases of emergency planning. With all the details and issues you have learned and presented over the past few weeks, this week we are asking you to zero in on a top priority for each phase and describe how you would evaluate them. Planning is necessary, but to ensure that planning is moving in the most effective direction, critical assessment and evaluation of your own and others’ ideas is required if your planning is to be successful. As you watched the video in this unit’s studies, Principles of Emergency Management: Planning and Coordination, you may have noticed that all the comments were filtered through the individual’s needs and point of view. An emergency manager has a big job with many relationships to manage!
