Imagine you are the director of FEMA using NIMS when this disaster occurs.

    • Describe the nature of the situation.

  • Which organization is responsible for what? Where will you allocate your resources?
  • What public health concerns are the results of each of these events?
  • Which populations might be most at risk?

  • What other health concerns may arise from these events?
  • What will you say to the people, who are desperately awaiting your direction?
