Throughout this Capstone course, the student will first be assessing and then improving the simulation. In the Cases, each paper will discuss the extension of a different mission area. In the SLPs, a presentation will be developed from the viewpoint of a key leader (i.e., Incident Commander, Operations Chief, Logistics Chief).
Based on the Module 1 Case paper on the DHS mission area, “Ensure resilience to disasters”, prepare a presentation from the viewpoint of a key leader (i.e., EOC Commander, Incident Commander, Operations Chief, Logistics Chief) to extend the disaster simulation. (Hint: Base the presentation from the simulation EOC briefing.)
Focus on expanding content of key leadership roles from the Case 1 simulation.
Include references to recent disaster examples and the impact upon the people, community, or region. The presentation can expand a briefing in the Case 1 simulation or be based on an additional leadership role.
