  In lieu of a term paper, for this class you will visit an emergency management professional and conduct a site visit to an emergency operations center or equivalent. You will have until the end of Week 7 to complete this in order to accommodate scheduling difficulties you may encounter in arranging your visit – however, don’t procrastinate. YOU MAY NOT SUBSTITUTE INTERNET RESEARCH, PHONE CALLS, EMAILS, etc. for the interview. You must visit an EOC and talk with an emergency manager.
It is best to select a county, state, or military base emergency manager to interview. Select someone who has more breadth of responsibility than a police or fire chief, and more technical knowledge of emergency management than a mayor or city councilman. Make an appointment to interview him or her in person, and request a visit to the emergency operations center.
Interview topics to consider would include the mission, the structure of emergency operations, the communication system, the budget, etc. Ask for an overview of the last time the system was exercised, either real-world or simulation. Allow the interview to range freely until you have a full understanding of the operation and can explain it in detail.
For the site visit, observe the structure and communication infrastructure of the operations center. Is it protected? Is there a backup? Is the equipment current technology? What are the apparent shortcomings?  Write a minimum 10-page paper relating your interview and site visit results. Ensure there is a summary of what you have learned, how it relates to the class material, and that it contains a strong recommendation section with recommendations that would improve operational effectiveness. Be sure to provide this and all papers in proper APA format. Paper due 7/17
