The Transportation and Transshipment Framework

Assignment of Emergency Preparedness Responsibilities (Executive Order (EO) 12656)

Session Long Projects 1 through 4 are focused on a specific hurricane or tsunami-like scenario that you select. Each modules SLP builds upon the other.

Exercise

Research a specific hurricane, tsunami, or earthquake that occurred within the past 10 years, other than Hurricane Katrina. Pay particular attention to the logistics and transportation issues in the response and recovery activities of the affected area. Make certain that there is enough coverage of the event to ensure that you can analyze the logistics and transportation issues.

You will use this event as the basis for each Modules SLP assignment for the rest of the course.

Consider displaced citizens, infrastructure destruction, sanitation challenges, the safety and protection of citizens, and the actual and potential dangers of cascading disasters such as exposure to downed electrical wires, poles, impassable roads and highways, possible ruptured gas lines, nuclear incidents, and overwhelmed law enforcement systems. Assume that a State of Emergency has been declared and granted, for federal assistance.

You are the Incident Commander. While waiting for the federal response, what are your current logistics priorities and transportation support concerns? Why? Support your answers with quotations.
How would you compare the logistics and transportation response between your selected event to those that occurred in Hurricane Sandy? On What basis would you make the comparisons? Justify your position with facts, statistics, examples, quotations, etc., and use proper citations and references.
