Section 1: The Disaster, Man-Made or Natural
What disasters may strike your community and why? For example, do
you live in “Tornado Alley,” or has climate change resulted in unusual
cold weather snaps or blizzards in your community? Are you located in a
flood plain? Include possible diseases that may result from a natural
disaster, such as tetanus or cholera.
Section 2: The Nursing Response
Formulate responses to the disaster, considering systems and community levels of intervention.
Review websites where a disaster plan may be available for the
public, or if one is not currently available, call public health
department to see if a disaster plan exists for your community and what
the plan contains.
In addition to reviewing websites for information about your
local disaster plan, you will need to locate best
practice/evidence-based practice guidelines in professional literature
to determine whether your community’s disaster plan is as sound as it
might be or if there is room for improvement.
Section 3: Is My Community Prepared for a Disaster?
What conclusions can you draw about your community’s preparedness plan from having completed this evaluation?
