Communication with the public is a key element of disaster response. In this assignment, imagine you are a new member of a public safety team in the municipal government and you’ve been tasked with preparing a briefing presentation to introduce emergency management to the community.
Create a 5-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation introducing community members to emergency management. Include information and examples that address the following questions:
- How is emergency management defined?
- What are the major theories of emergency management?
- What is the history of emergency management?
- Why is emergency management important for the community?
Include speaker notes, a cover slide, an introduction slide that highlights the presentation’s major points, a conclusion slide that recaps the main points, and a reference slide.
Cite at least 2 sources within the presentation and format your citations according to APA guidelines.
