After reviewing this units video, Module Two the Stafford Act, you will create a blog post that addresses the following.
Explain the disaster declaration process and role of the federal government in times of disaster.
Identify the individual programs available to disaster victims through the Stafford Act.
Give your opinion regarding whether individual and public assistance programs provided through FEMA help fulfill the
federal governments role and responsibilities during times of emergencies.
Make at least one recommendation for change, and give an example of the anticipated effect.
There are two essentials to good blogging. First, remember that a blog should be conversational and be an extension of
your own thoughts and opinions, not merely a list of facts. Your post should have a topic, have a purpose of presenting a
point of view, and indicate an openness to dialogue by inviting comments. Since this class is your audience, you can
assume a basic understanding of homeland security terms, phrases, and acronyms.
Be creative, while still meeting the requirements of the blogs content listed above. The Blackboard Blog Tool will allow you
to include text, images, links, multimedia, mash-ups, and attachments to your blog entry.
