Unit 4 Discussion 1

As the director of emergency services for the community located on the South Carolina coast, you have been preparing for a hurricane for the past several days. When the hurricane finally comes ashore, it does so as a category 4. Discuss how you will respond to this disaster. What resources would you call upon locally, at the state level, and at the federal level? Discuss at what point will you call for state and federal aid and under what legal authority would you be able to call for the federal aid to meet your response needs?
