Emergency Planning and Methodology: An Introduction

Partnerships and the Emergency Response Plan

The Session Long Project for this course is to examine partnerships of five essential sectors to an effective Emergency Response Plan (ERP)—using the National Response Framework (NRF) as a guide.

These partnerships are:

  • Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and volunteer partnerships
  • Military partnerships: humanitarian/support role
  • Local, state, and federal partnerships
  • Private sector partnerships
  • Local fire department/law enforcement partnerships

We will now consider the first partnership: nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and volunteer partnerships.

Respond to the following:

The NRF contains guidelines for NGO and volunteer involvement in the aftermath of a disaster. An effective ERP should have language addressing their involvement locally.

  1. Locate in the NRF guidelines NGO and volunteer management. Cite your sources: title, location, page number.
  2. Locate the appropriate NRF Annex for the American Red Cross. Choose two functions and relate them to an effective ERP. In other words, how and what would be the functions of the Red Cross according to an ideal Emergency Response Plan? Cite your sources by location, title, and page number.
  3. Which NGOs and/or volunteer organizations would you include in this plan, and why? Be specific.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Length: The SLP assignment should be at least 2-3 pages long.

References: At least two references should be included from academic sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included. The references should be cited within the text and also listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (preferably in APA format).

Quoted material should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it must be enclosed in quotes.

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper.

Format: APA format is recommended (but not required) for this assignment. See Syllabus page for more information on APA format.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

  • Relevance - All content is connected to the question.
  • Precision - Specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate.
  • Depth of discussion - Points that lead to deeper issues are presented and integrated.
  • Breadth - Multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues/factors considered.
  • Evidence - Points are well-supported with facts, statistics, and references.
  • Logic - Presented discussion makes sense; conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information.
  • Clarity - Writing is concise, understandable, and contains sufficient detail or examples.
  • Objectivity - Paper avoids use of first person and subjective bias.
