been pretty self-contained and we have been able to overcome the obstacles and rebuild without the help of outside resources.

of a disaster or an emergency/hazard. An Emergency Manager (EM), I must be able to manage my communities resource prior to an emergency, during and after as well. I have to be able to have a complete inventory of my personnel and my material that will, is and has been used and be able to coordinate the help of outside agencies without becoming flustered. We need to make sure there is a solid plan in place for every type of natural disaster or emergency event that we are likely to incur and need to have the resources readily available or on standby in the event that we need to call on them. We need to identify the potential impacts that could affect Erwin NC and need to be diligent on conducting assessments to review the possible threats and risks to the community so that we can either eliminate the threat, or in the instance we cannot eliminate, we can prepare to overcome it if that threat becomes a reality. We also must be able to coordinate with outside agencies and include them in a possible Emergency Plan so that in the event of an emergency or a disaster, everyone knows the succession of order and knows where they need to be at all times and who they are in charge of. Community Partners Not only do I need to be involved as the EM establishing an Emergency Plan, but other partners in the community should be involved as well. Community Partners and the support of those in Erwin are imperative to successfully overcoming an emergency, disaster or hazard. The community partners that need to be apart of establishing an Emergency Plan are simple. Local Fire/Ems, Local Police, Harnett County Government, Local government and the County Manager are important. Erwin Fire, EMS & Police are our local EMS and law enforcement situated within the city limits of Erwin, but Harnett County EMS & Police are also imperative to provide more support and to bring in the outside assistance in the case of our local authorities. If our local EMS is damaged in the event of a flood or something like a hurricane or a tornado,

having the assistance of the County EMS, fire and rescue is imperative to saving as many lives as possible. Also, to be included in the Emergency Planning aspect would be our County Manager who oversees almost every aspect of what happens in Harnett County as whole. They are the ones who would make the call if we need outside assistance from agencies that are not part of NC. Our County Manager is Paula Stewart but she is the interim manager at this time. Until someone else is hired, she needs to be included in all of the town decisions so that she is not blind sided if we request assistance. The other person that needs to be involved is the Mayor of Erwin – Patsy Carson. She will be the go-to for the Emergency Manager (myself) to report to and to run decisions by.

    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.
