Part 1: Emergency Response Plan
Using the Internet, locate and read the Emergency Response Plan for your local community. Evaluate whether the plan seems to be sufficient as an emergency planning tool. Why or why not? Does it place undue burden on business? Does it place undue burden on individual members of society? Does it satisfy the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act’s requirements? Regardless of whether you believe the plan is sufficient or not, provide two suggestions for improving it. (If you cannot locate your local Emergency Response Plan, choose any city’s plan to evaluate instead.)
