This is my scenario:A community of approximately 10,000 has been exposed to an unknown
virus. It appears to be spread by contact. At present, only a small portion of
the population is affected. Government leaders and health officials are
contemplating community containment. Discuss how you, as the logistic
chief, would supply and support emergency operations, what agencies
would you seek support from, and establish points of distribution.
The scenario listed above. Write a 3000-word paper (plus or minus 10%) that briefly
describes the incident.
The paper should utilize APA format.
The final paper will be your opportunity to present a
plan and objectives for providing logistic support to a
fictional disaster situation. Although every situation
encountered has its own unique requirements in order to
successfully support the operation, there are basic actions
taken pre-, intra- and post that should be followed.
Incorporate what you have learned in policy, practice and
possibly personal experience and develop an operational
(tactical) plan- focused on logistics support- to ensure that
disaster operations go smoothly. The goal of your paper
should not to create the “perfect solution”; more it should
be an examination/analysis of the situation at hand, and
your role as a disaster logistician to assist the Incident
Commander in supporting emergency operations.
