Compare and contrast the responses to Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy (also called Superstorm Sandy)..
From our Week 8 readings, we see that the Incident Command System and NIMS have changed drastically over the years. The NIC has been developed in order to make sure that our incident management systems are as efficient and effective as possible. Going forward, there will inevitably be changes that will positively impact our emergency response and disaster planning organizations.
Write a post to achieve the following:
- Compare and contrast the responses to Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy (also called Superstorm Sandy).
Report on two areas where improvements were made in the response and incident management between Katrina in 2005 and Sandy in 2012 and write a paragraph on each.
Address how you think ICS and NIMS will change in order to meet future challenges.
Please APA cite and reference your sources in your post.
Your initial post must be a minimum of 350 words.
