The Town of South Amboy was devastated, after it was struck by super storm Sandy on October 29, 2012. The town of South Amboy lost basic services and first responders were working to their full capacity in order to meet the town’s need. There is a Senior assisted living facility in the town of South Amboy near the shore area, the facility housed approximately fifty residents. The view is beautiful from there; however, due to the proximity to the ocean, it’s also a dangerous place due to flooding. The magnitude of super storm Sandy obligated everyone in the facility to evacuate in order to stay alive. Some of the residents of the assisted living facility required special equipment such as wheelchairs, oxygen and special medication in order to be evacuated safely, and due to the severity of the high winds and flooding, the residents or staff members couldn’t drive out of the area. Emergency managers should conduct an assessment of their community in order to identify the individuals with special needs …show more content…

Task 5 According to the utility theory, consumers would change their spending pattern if the satisfaction they gain from the products or the price of products alter.

You take great pride in your passion for physical fitness, you work out daily, and you consistently score above a 90% on your annual Air Force Fitness Examination. Your fitness in an example to everyone in your work center and I would recommend you seek that opportunity to become the primary Unit Fitness Program Monitor (UFPM) in the Squadron. In accordance with (IAW) Air Force Instruction (AFI) AFI10-248, a UFPM is responsible for oversight and administration of the unit’s fitness program. Your responsibilities would include, scheduling Squadron members for their fitness assessments, administering the fitness questionnaire, and when applicable, entering Squadron member fitness exemptions into the base fitness management system. Also, per our Squadron Commanders fitness policy, as the UFPM you would be responsible for assisting Airmen who score lower that a 79% on their fitness assessment and are enrolled in the Commanders “FIT” program with personal workout routines at least three times a week.
The training would include a walk-through of an evacuation with a review of responsibilities at the offsite relocation site. This has never been performed with the staff and it seems unreasonable to believe that the plan could be implemented effectively if not practiced. Also, the safety plan would be updated to reflect an emergency communication plan. Communication in the time of crisis is essential and the tools exist to have an effective way to send messages to all staff during emergencies. The software application Remind would be used.

The novel Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink gives an inside view of what happened at Memorial Hospital during Hurricane Katrina (2005); a disaster inside of a disaster. The lack of preparedness or ethical decision making is quite disappointing, considering Memorial hospital is located in New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans is well below sea level, and experiences frequent hurricanes and flooding. Memorial hospital itself had little to no plan for evacuating patients once the storm hit. Without power, many of the patients, especially those who were ventilator dependent, became at risk of death.

However, this should be a learning experience that hospitals have to be more prepared for situations like this to happen. A number of factors like how the Memorial Medical Center was built was a huge problem, the power sources were vulnerable to the hurricane and were damaged. The wall 's structure of the hospitals was too weak and were able to get destroyed before help arrived. The faculty of the hospital were also in need of preparation on how to deal with the situation. We have to keep this in mind and remember that health care professionals will always have the best interest for us for our health and
Loss is ubiquitous in the shelter and individual resources for therapy and coping can be limited. Several months ago the director of WHRC asked us if we’d also be willing to put together a monthly workshop for residents who were on the verge of being housed because the transition from the shelter to housing was proving difficult for some. It seems that somewhere in their frenetic momentum to leave the shelter, many people had neglected to consider that this next step might be hard. Change and transition, no matter how positive, has the tendency to evoke memories, anxieties, and emotions. Not the mention the fact that, without realizing it, many people had laid roots in the shelter’s community.
