The Saber City Disaster Preparedness (DP) team wanted to coordinate a mock terrorist attack to study the effectiveness of their disaster management plan. The goal of the mock attack was to promote confidence, develop skills, coordinate activities, and coordinate participants of the disaster management team. The plan was to have a bus carrying important politicians ‘explode’ outside the federal courthouse in downtown Saber. All participating organizations (including the health department, hospital, police department, and fire department) were notified of the date of the mock attack. Volunteers were found to play the victims at the scene. Describe the stage of disaster management that the city of Saber has reached. What is the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)? What other agencies assist FEMA in emergency management, and how do they help? What interventions do you feel need to be implemented?
