Continue your research for your Final Research Paper. It is recommended you start your research by conducting topical searches in the Ashford University Library. Many of the approved topics have Research Starters for your topic. The Research Starter should address the common issues for the topic. The bibliography is a good place to identify additional resources for your paper, and this should set you up for success.
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read your course text and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (2017) Critical Infrastructure Sector. web page. Over the years, there have been some good responses to various disasters, and there have also been some terrible responses. Responses to hazards generally always begin at the local level and then, depending on the hazard, can escalate to the national level. Some of this stems from a variety of leadership challenges and how well we are prepared for the event. For this assignment, select a natural disaster that has affected you in some way such as a hurricane, tornado, blizzard, or wildfire, and look at the National Incident Management Systems (NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF), both of which are addressed. Address how the NRF and NIMS were used to bring the disaster under control. Explain your role or how you or someone you know was affected by the disaster (i.e., psychologically and/or physically).
In your paper,
- Explain why changes were necessary in the existing response structure which lead to the NRF in use today.
- Explain, based on the disaster you identified, how the response dictated the NRF and NIMS response would be used if the disaster occurred today.
- Justify whether or not you think states should take a more active role in emergency management at the local level and if implementation of the NRF usurps state responsibility and jurisdiction when responding to a disaster.
The National Response Framework paper
Must be two to three double-spaced pages in length (excluding the title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center's APA Style.
