Communities and Disaster Preparedness
Week 7 Discussion: Communities and Disaster Preparedness
The purpose of this discussion is for learners to identify ways their community is helping members be prepared for potential disasters including the importance of collaboration.
This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcome:
Think about disasters your community has or could potentially face. Now, think about how your community is helping its members prepare.
Explore your community and find an advertisement that represents helping community members be prepared for a disaster.
Examples could be a billboard, poster at a bus stop, marquee sign, flyer, yard sign and more. Example: Sign advertising ‘free’ flu vaccinations at a local pharmacy.
