Identification of the incident and succinct summary of the event
Throughout this course you will conduct in-depth research and analysis on an emergency situation and write your own AAR that should result in recommendations for improved practice within your own jurisdiction. Your first step is to select a relatively recent emergency event (approximately within the last 10 years), either natural or human-caused, to investigate.
Choose an event that was significant enough to cause widespread impact, involving multiple levels of government and the surrounding community; however, avoid selecting major disasters, including 911 and Hurricane Katrina, for which multiple reports are widely available. Do preliminary research to select the emergency event that you will research for your AAR. Submit a 250-word description of your selection for approval with the following components:
- Identification of the incident and succinct summary of the event.
- Justification for selection that explains why you think this event could lead to improved practice in the field.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
