2 An Evaluation of Arizona’s Emergency PlansEvidence that Arizona Has a Concrete All HazardsPlan Arizona with all its beauty is the sixth largest state in the United States. The state has 114,006 square miles consisting of six terrestrial ecoregions. By recognizing the spatial differences in the capacities and potentials of ecosystems, ecoregions stratify the environment by its probable response to disturbance. (Griffith, 2014) Therefore, the more ecoregions the more likely Arizona is prone to different types of hazards in the desert, valley’s, forests, mountains, cities canyon land infrastructure, and river alluvial floodplains in our region. Evidence that Arizona has a concrete all hazards plan will be considered by these ecoregions and the state of Arizona’s mitigation, preparedness response and recovery. Then by highlighting how effectively Arizona is prepared in planning for all hazards to react to emergencies. This evaluation will tell us what are the common and uncommon hazards Arizona planned for and the ones they left out of their all hazards plan, as well as address a whole community approach to hazards. An all hazards plan in Arizona covers relevant components to my field of study in the healthcare settingand it will show how planning, mitigation, response and recovery are related to the Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) that addresses all hazards in Arizona. Plus, how healthcare is impacted bythe state’s emergency plans. The evidence that Arizona uses an all hazards approach in the states EOP is because, Arizona recognizes the consequences of disasters and the critical need to reduce the impacts of natural and human-caused hazards. (dema.az.gov) This Plan has is in compliance with Section
3 An Evaluation of Arizona’s Emergency Plans322 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act or the Act), the Plan identifies all hazards measures intended to eliminate or reduce the effects of futuredisasters throughout the state. (dema.az.gov) Arizona’s most eminent threats are drought, extreme heat, wildfires, Hazardous Materials Incidents, infectious diseases and terrorism.
