In your main post, continuing with a focus on preparedness and moving on toward mitigation, complete the following:
- Create a short scenario (no more than two paragraphs) of a critical incident that might take place in your region.
- Describe your preparedness planning, referencing the scenario.
- Explain your early thoughts on mitigation should such an incident occur in your region.
Continuing with the same scenario you created for the Tabletop Exercise discussion in this unit, your emphasis in this discussion is on how you will plan to successfully implement a vertical evacuation.
In your main post:
- Provide a rationale for why the location you have chosen is appropriate. For example, is the structure strong enough for the envisioned use?

- Suggest a way to provide informed “shelter supervisors” for your chosen site.
- Explain why it is important to estimate the length of time protection will be necessary.
- Summarize ways to implement an orderly movement of appropriate numbers of people from threatened areas to the chosen location.
