Disaster and Emergency Management Discussion

Help me study for my Health & Medical class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.


I have a question that need to answer for disscruion and I attached the chapters so you can read


Join your classmates in a critical analysis Group Dialogue regarding. the aspect of culture in organizations and basic motivations, as they apply to teamwork in Disaster and Emergency Management?

  • Your initial response should be 300-500 words in length, reflecting on the prompt above.
  • Remember to apply a Critical Analysis approach: I am most interested in the HOW, the WHY, and the WHAT IF; the who, what, when, where is background information, the narrative. Proficient students will provide Evaluation: So What (how does this apply to Disaster and Emergency Management) and What’s Next (what you plan to do to explore the application of this material to your current situation).

Also I will post three different answers that my classmates posted so you can look at them and get an idea how it works

Bhaduri succinctly outlines the nature of our academic pursuit: random lousy stuff happens, leaving us little room for critical thinking or time to act (2019). The situation contains the possibility of proper management, but the responding group must overcome internal and external challenges to the organization (Bhaduri, 2019). I see obvious parallels between the disaster cycle and the five stages of a crisis put forth by Pearson and Mitroff (1993).

Knowing what signs you are looking for in signal detection permits you to mitigate what you discover (Pearson & Mitroff, 1993). Maintaining a state of preparedness in anticipation of crisis is just that, preparedness (Pearson & Mitroff, 1993). Response to a disaster aims to reduce the impact of the problem, containing the damage (Pearson & Mitroff, 1993). Recovery efforts work to bring the business, group, or community back to a sense of normalcy (Pearson & Mitroff, 1993). I view the scholarly endeavors of the disaster management community as a channel to learn from our mistakes and improve our plans for the next event (Pearson & Mitroff, 1993).

I have some difficulty reliably defining the culture of emergency management. Part of this is our relatively newer profession in the emergency response community—some of us remembering hearses as ambulances (maybe even worked on one?). The emergency department is host to multiple work cultures, each with a detailed backstory. Having worked extensively as a Charge Nurse, I see our emergency roles filled by persons who are highly reliable and work well under duress, similar to flight deck controllers and nuclear power plant operators (Blake, 2013). My view towards good leadership is knowing when to leave the group work independently, when to step in for course corrections, and recognizing when you are being asked to help.
