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 5-7 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. Use bullet statements in the body of content slides and rely on the speaker’s notes for supporting details.
Cite at least 2 sources within the presentation and format your citations according to APA guidelines.
