In the Jurisdictional Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) Short Essay, students will begin the process of deconstructing the jurisdictional CEMP that they have retrieved online, earlier in this course. In this process of deconstruction, students will begin to really uncover the underlying components of the jurisdictional CEMP that they have selected. In this process of uncovering their plan’s components, students should begin looking for areas where the existing plan could use improvement. For example, does the existing plan that you are reviewing make any mentioning of Electromagnetic Pulse Attack (EMP Attack)? Does the existing plan mention solar flares or other solar events? Does the plan that you are reviewing adequately address the most socially vulnerable populations in our society such as the homeless and very poor? Those are just examples of where most CEMPs can be improved. There are many others.
Topic: the exclusive federal jurisdiction
Students should write a two-page short essay white paper briefing providing some constructive criticism of the plan that they have selected to review. Is the student finding any glaring deficiencies? Or, is the student merely seeing where the plan has room for improvement? Either way, the student should provide a two-page briefing on these deficiencies, or areas of plan improvement, to be submitted to the professor of this course. Please make an effort to demonstrate thoughtfulness and creativity in your written assignment submissions that are unmistakably indicative of high-level critical thinking skills.
Please include both in-text citations and a reference list. Both should be in alignment with APA 6th edition citation form and style.
