PBHE413 Week 8

1.Discuss the differences in clinical presentation
between a person who is a victim of a chemical vs. a biological event.
2.During Week 6, we learned about
natural disasters and some lessons learned (e.g., Hurricane Katrina). How do
these lessons from a natural disaster compare to those learned from the other
incidents about which you have read in this course?
3.There continues to be an increasing need for
emergency management, especially with the increasing number of mass casualty
events. Using the course material or other resources, what do you think are the
Top 3 things necessary for emergency preparedness and response? Please explain
your selections.
4.How
do you think the psychological effects of a terrorist-generated disaster impact
the response? Give reasons for your response.
5.Emergency
preparedness and disaster response have significantly improved post 11
September 2001. One major improvement has been the increased use of the
Incident Command System. How has the Incident Command System improved the
emergency response to large-scale emergencies and mass casualties?
