QUIZ #2 REVIEW 3 Key Steps to Assessing Risk (chapter 5). o Identifying hazardous sites and transport routes o Identifying potential incident scenarios and their exposure pathways o Identifying vulnerable populations, facilities, and environments o Estimating the health impact of potential incidents and the requirements for health care facilities and public health intervention. What are MSDS. (chapter 5) o Material Safety Data Sheets, provide a standardized method if communicating relevant information about each material, including its toxicity, flammability, and known acute and chronic health effects. Be able to discuss the situation in which individuals are less willing to accept risk, and situations in which they are more willing to accept risk. (Chapter 6) o Individuals are less willing to accept risks they perceive as imposed on them or controlled by others, having little or no benefit, unevenly distributed among different groups, created by humans, catastrophic or exotic in occurrence, generated by an untrusted source, and mostly affecting children. o Individuals are more willing to accept risks perceived as voluntary and under an individual’s control, having clear benefits, fairly distributed or of natural causation, generated by a trusted source, mostly affecting adults, and whose occurrence is a statistical probability. 3 Critical Actions for Communicating During an Emergency (chapter 6) o Advance planning o Collaboration o Updating the message as needed The "disaster myth" of panic (chapter 6) o Some officials withhold warnings until the last possible moment, sometimes until it is too late to take effective protective action. This has been attributed to the disaster myth that panic is a likely response and that panic following a call for evacuation might cause more deaths and injuries than would the disaster itself. Principles of disaster planning (chapter 7) o Disaster planning should focus on a local response with federal and state support. Planners should establish relationships with a variety of stake holders who can contribute to the plan by understanding their agency’s assets, capabilities, and limitations and their familiarity with the needs of the community.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
