Project

  The scenario information can be located at the hyperlinks below. Groups have been assigned a city to use in their project. Note on the project scenario: The goal of this project is not for students to become experts on the technical details of nuclear detonation within the United States. The scenario was chosen because of the complexity and requirement for coordination between Federal, state and local responders. The goal of the project is for students to gain an understanding of the complexity of a large scale incident response and the roles and responsibilities of the various responders that would deploy in support of the response / recovery effort. I encourage highly students to ask questions. Additional readings during Weeks One and Two will provide additional context to the incident. http://www.atomicarchive.com/Example/index.shtml National Planning Scenarios: Executive Summaries. (2005, April). Retrieved March 11, 2019, from https://www.ajg.com/media/1699367/national-planning-scenarios-executive-summaries.pdf. You are assigned the EMS organization    Simulation Task #1:  1) (Group Task) Make list of at least four SMART incident objectives for your assigned response discipline.  These should represent the significant actions that need to be taken by your response discipline to deal with the first six-hours of the incident.  2) (Individual) Based on the scenario, describe the role of your assigned department and overall discipline (law enforcement, fire, EMS, Public Works) in the response.  Based on the description of resources in the assigned scenario materials, is this something your Department has the resources to handle on its own? (3) (Group) Consult the National Response Framework – Terrorism Incident Annex (https://www.fema.gov/media-library-data/20130726-1825-25045-5502/terrorism_incident_law_enforcement___investigation_annex_2004.pdf ). What agencies will you and your Department need to work with directly and indirectly at the local, State, federal levels?  Cite specific details from the appropriate documents.   Simulation Task #2:  1)    (Group Task)  The final product is a single list of SMART objectives that cover the first six hours of the incident.  This should be labeled as FINAL INCIDENT OBJECTIVES and posted in the Group Area. It should be virtually signed by all incident commanders by responding to the post that they agree with the objectives.       2)   (Group Task)   List these objectives and complete the other items on the ICS-202 Form as information allows.  The ICS 202 is a group effort and should be submitted as a group.  Consider and complete a safety message that is appropriate for the circumstances (This would be completed by the Safety Officer after assessing risks to personnel).   Simulation Task #3:  1)  (Group Task) Complete the ICS 203 Form with the information discussed as a group.  The Operations Section should be designed with a branch for each discipline (Fire, Law Enforcement, EMS, Public Works).  The organizational structure below the branch level will be handled as individual task in the next step below. Complete the ICS-203 form yourself and upload to the assignments folder.    2) (Individual Task) Detail the Operations Section design for your response discipline.  This should describe everything below the Branch down to the Unit level (see example below).  The example only shows one group and two units.  The completed version should show all groups and units.  The operations section should be organized in a manner that both meets the incident objectives agreed upon in Task #2 and any specific responsibilities that may be described in the National Response Framework. Explain the structure of your operations section in a 1-2 page description. Detail how this relates to the achievement of incident objectives and response policy. (cite them).  (Upload to the student assignments folder)  3) (Individual) Complete Incident Communication Plan ICS-205.  (Assume that the assigned cityand the affected incident areas) have an interoperable communications system with 15 available channels numbered 1-15)   Simulation Task #4:  1) (Group Task) Complete the ICS 215 form (this is a worksheet and does not become part of the Incident Action Plan) to determine the resource needs for your discipline to accomplish incident objectives.  Make sure that your allocations are realistic and could be obtained with the initial short time period of the incident.  Use the Washington DC scenario documents to specifically identify resources available in the vicinity. Upload ICS-215 to the Assignments Folder (5 points)  2) (Group Task) Use the incident map to specifically describe where you will stage and assign requested resources.  (Ex. – If you are making a perimeter make sure you show how your resources will secure a perimeter – 1 Washington DC Police Officer at the corner of 1st Street and Third Avenue).  You will need to write a 2-3 page narrative, but can also support it with a map if you have the technology available to manipulate the map.  Using a map is not required, but you must specifically describe how the resources will be assigned and the function they will perform.  (Remember if you going to have 100 firefighters you need to explain to me where they came from)  Upload description to the Assignment Folder (15 points).  3) (Group Task) Complete ICS Form ICS-213  to order your resources. Upload to Assignment Folder (2 points).  4) (Group Task)For one of the groups you created in the operations section in task #3 complete an ICS-204 form that details the personnel and the control operations to be completed by the group.  Be specific in location and action.  (Just as in completing the ICS-215 consider what it would take to complete ICS 204s for each element in your discipline and across all of the response disciplines) Upload to assignments folder (2 points).  Simulation Task #5:  1) (Group Task) Develop the specific message that would be released through the media and announced by the PIO.  (Consider what does the public need to know? and what do you need them to do?) (Make sure you use course resources on message mapping and that detail information about warning messages.)  (5 points)  2)  (Group Task) Write a 1-2 page explanation of the warning message you constructed.  Cite course materials from the syllabus concerning the development of warning messages. (10 Points)  Simulation Task #6:  1) (Group Task) 1-2 page description of the benefits and AAR process from the syllabus readings. Cite appropriate sources. (5 points)  2) (Group Task) Since we don’t have the incident results to critique.  Provide a brief critique of your experience as a student in this simulation (Positive or negative review will not impact your grade). Describe what you have learned and what you think your strengths and weaknesses would be in managing an incident of this type. (5 points)
