Emergency Management Simulation:

Decision Making

Directions:

The following simulation is a notional exercise broken into 4 defined time periods in which you will be evaluated on your use of all skills and knowledge that has been presented in this mod

There are 4 operating periods. Each operating period will begin with a debrief and require an action to be completed by you. Upon completing each action you may be asked to complete or answer situational tasks in order to define your knowledge and grasp of the concepts taught in the Mod. In each slide you will see a red arrow, every time you see this you will need to perform an action

Additional actionable items will be titled “INJECT” and have a lightening bolt next to it.

All reference materials are available. You may even use ones not talked about in class, just ensure they are of a professional or academic resource grade. (NO Wikipedia!)

Always ensure you report where you obtained your information from for any decision made. If its not verifiable it will not be considered correct!

 

Directions Continued

Simply click through the slides and watch the presentation. Read carefully – all of the information is there to complete your tasks!

Grades will be based on participation and use of the references and skills learned in the past 7 weeks – the more detailed you are… the better your grade!

At a minimum your response will include one full Incident Action Plan for the 4 incident periods (Forms 201 and 202) and a 1-2 page explanation for each decision inject.

Make sure you view all the presentations in order to make an informed decision.

You will find links to the necessary ICS documents and incident related information in your course on Blackboard (Week 8)

Contact your instructor with simulation operation questions.

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND INCIDENT SCENARIO

 

South Hamden Township is a rural area at the southernmost end of Landis County, New Columbia. The township includes the village of Hope Springs, which is surrounded by a golf course, schools, farmland, and the newer residential communities of Lilly, Misty Acres, and Sugar Mountain. A map of the area is provided on the following page. The township also has several significant businesses including a butter processing plant. Hope Springs was so named because of its location atop the third largest natural aquifer in the country.

Rainbow River is fed by 34 springs, which produce more than 24 million gallons of water each day. The water is used for drinking in Hope Springs and the northeastern end of the township. The geological underlay in and around Hope Springs is primarily limestone. Because of high subsurface water levels and because the limestone base is continually eroded by water movement, the entire area is subject to sink holes.

It is 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 2. The temperature is a mild 68 degrees, and the wind is from the south-southwest at 5 miles per hour, both of which are unusual for this time of year. Many of the residents are outside enjoying the nice weather. Children at the Frantz Elementary School are enjoying outdoor recess time.
