will be brought to the medical tent and readied for transport to local hospitals. Persons needing transport to the mainland will be brought to the transportation tent and prepared for transportation. Transportation at this time will be provided by Columbia County Emergency Services who also has emergency crews here to help with any emergency calls. Deliveries of supplies, resources, equipment, and food and water will be handled by the Columbia County Sheriff Department manning the dock, who will then distribute them to the proper areas. The Sheriff Department will also notify visitors wanting to come to the island or wanting to leave the island that we are under quarantine until further notice. A morgue has been set up on the south side of the island until victims can be processed and released. Accommodations are being made to bring in portable bathrooms for use by responders. Limitations and Strategies Limitations at this point are few except communications needing a phone. The island has limited cell service due to limited towers.

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT ACTION PLAN PHASE 2 4 and is in use. If the number of patients increases the transportation of patients, supplies, resources, equipment, food, and water will quickly become limited. Therefore, plans have been made to bring in a few more boats to be ready for the increased volume of patients, supplies, equipment, food, and water needed. Use of the private docks will be used for these extra boats if required. A training session will be held to help responders decipher the difference between the SARS and Red Tide symptoms if a distinction cannot be made between the two illnesses, it will be assumed SARS and treated as such. All responders will use infectious disease protocols until further notified regardless of which illness a patient may have. The island does not have any stores; therefore, food, water, and supplies will be shipped in from the mainland. At this point, it is unknown how many victims will become sick, and that includes responders becoming sick. Plans are underway for this incident to become much more significant, and the appropriate ICS branch is putting plans in place to have the resources, equipment, medication, water, and food ready for when it is needed. All islanders have been asked to quarantine in place, and the Columbia County Sheriff’s office is controlling the quarantine of the entire island until further notice.

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT ACTION PLAN PHASE 2 5 Human Resource Management The human resource (HR) department is responsible for recruiting, hiring, training, evaluating, and paying employees. The people working in HR have specialized education and training; however, they are limited in their knowledge of the personnel needs of the fire emergency services (FES). FES needs personnel that can learn complex skills are physically fit, be team players, and can endure extreme temperatures from hot too cold as a few examples. It is the job of the HR department to find and recruit these types of people. The HR department also plays a significant role in acquiring additional funding for personnel and selecting the best people for various jobs (Smeby, 2014).

    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.
