In this assignment, you will prepare a well-organized and thoughtful summary/narrative consisting of two sections.
In the first section, you will prepare a one-to-two page well-organized and thoughtful narrative for ending the IAP that will be an overall summary of the plan. This narrative should expand on what you have learned during the different phases so you can
understand issues that exist within the emergency services and emergency management field.
Ending the IAP is the final phase of the operational period when there are no other operational periods and the response actions have ended. Include the following items in your narrative:
– the ending process,
– no remaining threats, recovery is in place, and demobilization is in progress with continuity of operations.
The FEMA Incident Action Planning (IAP) Guide, p. 42 will guide you in completing the final plan. You may want to reference Appendices A – E, pp. 43-59, to re-check all your forms.
Any information not provided in the background information such as agency organization representatives can be your organizations personnel or another organization.
The second section will consist of one page in which you discuss the following:
The impact and influence the future will have on emergency services and emergency management, and the responsibility of emergency management administrators to continually strive to improve service to the public now and in the future.
To supplement your discussion and support your writing, you may use information from reputable, reliable journal articles, case studies, scholarly papers, and other sources that you feel are pertinent. All sources used, including the textbooks, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in proper APA style.
