Local and Federal Disaster Resources
Visit your local city’s web page (e.g., New York City’s web page is www.nyc.gov and the city of Miami’s web page is www.miamigov.com), state’s web page (e.g., www.texas.gov or www.ca.gov), and FEMA | Federal Emergency Management Agency.
In a minimum of five pages (not including title and reference pages) address the following:
- Identify two resources offered by your city and two resources offered by FEMA to aid victims recovering from a terrorist attack or natural disaster, and analyze how these resources work and how victims can utilize and find these resources.
- Evaluate how local, state, and federal agencies could better advertise and be more organized to provide meaningful mental health and trauma support to victims of disasters.
The paper must be five pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least three scholarly resources other than the textbook to support your claims and sub claims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
