Search for a local governmental Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) online for a jurisdiction of your choice. Download the CEMP PDF and review the document for issues regarding risk and mitigation. In this process of uncovering their plan’s components, look for areas wherein the existing plan could use improvement. For example, does the existing plan that you are reviewing mention Electromagnetic Pulse (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.
Instructions to Students:
Write a two (2) page short essay white paper briefing providing constructive criticism of the plan that you selected to review.

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.
