First, select a newer scholarly journal article (no older than 2015) relevant to

First, select a newer scholarly journal article (no older than 2015) relevant to the course regarding the US national response to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or the psychological impact of an WMD attack on the population. Then conduct an article review of that article. It must be related to the course or course materials. The intent is for students to do some external research away from the provided references and find an Article in the AMU/APUS Library. Students should search the library’s online databases, such as ProQuest, EbscoHost, and others, to find scholarly or peer-reviewed articles. Additionally, the review of the journal article is an evaluation of the article’s strengths, weaknesses, and validity. It is used to inform of the article’s value through your explanation, interpretation, and analysis. As you do this, ask the major questions that are central to the review process: 1. What is the purpose of this article? 2. Why is it important to investigate or examine the subject of the article? 3. How are the authors carrying out the task? Are their methods and comments appropriate and adequate to the task? 4. What do they claim to have found out? Are the findings clearly stated? 5. How does this advance knowledge in the field? Hint: These would make really good section titles for your paper. Your work should consist of: Introduction (this will have a well-defined purpose statement in your intro paragraph that provides guidance to the reader about what you are going to cover in your paper) Body (feel free to use sub-headings if necessary) Conclusion (this wraps up the key points of your work and brings your paper to a logical conclusion) Technical Requirements Your paper must be at a minimum of 5 pages (the Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit). Scholarly and credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content. Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space. Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework. Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc. All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.

For this assignment, you will research and examine an actual emergency situation

For this assignment, you will research and examine an actual emergency situation of your choosing (either a man-made or natural disaster) occurring within the last 8 years that required interaction among the local, state, and national levels. The research and examination should be reported in a paper written from the position of a local emergency management employee assigned to draft a report to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This assignment will require research into the authority, responsibility, and technological capabilities of FEMA. Within the past 8 years, there have been many catastrophes, not necessarily involving terrorist acts but requiring crisis management resources. Examples include Hurricane Katrina; the 2010 oil well explosion and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; the broken natural gas pipeline and resulting explosion in San Bruno, California; and major wildfires in California, Colorado, and other states, to name a few. Assignment Guidelines Address the following in a report of 750–1,000 words: Briefly describe and summarize the event. When did the event occur, and what happened? Were there any casualties or injuries? Was there any environmental damage? If so, explain What was the primary cause of the event? Explain. What intergovernmental jurisdictions were involved? How were they coordinated? Explain. What types of technology were used during the response and recovery phases? Summarize them. What tools, equipment, or technology could have significantly improved relief efforts? How? Were any special technologies or scientific developments used to restore the situation back to normal? If so, explain. Who should be responsible for funding and providing the tools, equipment, and technology—federal, state, or local governments? Why? Were there any coordination problems, such as interagency communication or conflict? Why or why not? What types of forecasting technologies could have been or were used in the event you selected? Explain. Were they effective? Why or why not? What conclusions and recommendations could you make? Explain. Compile your responses in the final report, and submit the file to your instructor. Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.
