Introduction – Family Disaster Plan Scenario
A. You must include research on the dangers and explain the recommended safety measures in a tornado emergency.
How would you prepare for the following situation?
(Scenario) At this moment, you are sitting at home working on your WCU class. Suddenly, the National Weather Bureau sends an alert across your cell phone—a tornado is headed your way. You have 15 minutes before touchdown in your neighborhood.
A. What is your plan? This is a ‘shelter in place’ scenario, you cannot outrun the tornado. Identify a safe place in your home (residence) to take shelter.
B. Provide realistic examples and explain how you would apply the safety and survival measures you learned in your research of a tornado emergency to your specific living arrangements.
Example: “I will turn off my utilities before I shelter in place to mitigate damage to my residence.”
Example: “I will take by “go-bags” with me to my shelter in place.
How prepared are you in the event of a disaster?
A. Describe your level of disaster preparedness using specific examples and references to:
1. Potential disasters in your area.
2. Your 72 hour “go-bag” assignment.
3. Family Disaster Plan Checklist.
Example: “I am more prepared for a water-related disaster than a fire-related disaster even though I live in a highly secluded, forested area. I have a boat as transportation in the event of flooding, but I do not have rain barrels or fire barrier supplies on hand.”
Example: “There were many missing items on my preparedness checklist. I realized that I do not own a flashlight. If I had to use my phone as a light it would drain the battery very quickly.
A. Reflect on how prepared you were before this class and compare it with how prepared you are now.
· Have you acquired any new emergency items?
· Do you plan to take any additional training or certification courses?
· Have you shared your knowledge with friends and family?
B. How does what you have learned in this course impact you as a future nurse?
