    • Competency 3: Specify evaluation techniques for emergency management response effectiveness.

    Introduction

    Managing a response to disaster has many moving parts. Examine the Response Management Desk media piece to see articles, government guidelines, Web resources and photos of an actual disaster, a flood in Fargo, ND.Public service announcements play an enormous role in preventing death and damages to property during disasters. Perry and Lindell (2007) point out that the goal of an announcement is to, “convince as many people as possible that they need to protect themselves from the disaster impact. To create the most persuasive message possible, you have to understand the traits of warning recipients and the traits of people in your community” (p.329).
