integrating the knowledge gained in Module 1 to understand the trends and impact of emergency management, including the lessons learned from the events of September 11, 2001 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. the viewing of Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the PBS Frontline program “The Storm” about Hurricane Katrina.

Integrating the knowledge you have gained during this week: (individual paragraph answers on a page are acceptable for this assignment)
1- After reviewing all the content in Module 1, how do you think it all relates to trends you see in emergency management?
2- For example, more people are increasingly affected by natural disasters. While it’s true that more construction now occurs in hazardous places (e.g. picturesque cliffs, mountain slopes, floodplains, coastal areas, along seismic faults, etc.), how does that fit into the bigger picture of emergency management policy and practice?
3- How are the things that you do every day and take for granted involved in emergency management processes?
4- What do you think were some lessons learned from the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 ?
5- What do you think were some lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina in 2005?
6- What might some emergency management plans now include because of such events? source 1 Canton, Lucien G. 2020.

– The Impact of September 11, 2001

The events of
9/11 prompted widespread reform in approaches to emergency management in
the United States. You’ve read about them in the textbook, but now take a look
at the original 9/11 Commission Report – but you don’t have to read it all!
Read the “Preface” of the 9/11 Commission Report to get a
better grasp of the thinking and intentions behind it.

on the link then scroll until you come to the “Preface” of The 9/11 Commission Report.Links to an external site.
After reading the
Preface of the report, review this more recent report that documents progress
made in implementing the 9/11 Commission Report’s recommendations. While you
read, think about how the implementation of these recommendations have affected
your own life and the lives of people close to you (i.e. family and
friends).

One of
the contested aspects of the 9/11 report is the existence of the
“secret 28 pages” as they are sometimes called. Read the
following New York Times article and decide for yourself: should these
pages remain classified? What is your opinion of how issues of national
security and classified/unclassified information have changed since 9/11?
