monitored for any changes if it turns terrible preventing the boats or planes from the operation, patients will be held in the medical tent until such time that transportation to the hospital is safe to do so. Everyone is doing a great job thus far. Currently, there have been no changes in the number of sick individuals, other than those already reported. Again, we ask that all personnel continue to use the infection disease protocols for their protection. The food tent is available 24- hours a day, be sure to take adequate breaks to eat and rest, and remain hydrated. There will be another operational briefing in 48 hours to once again apprise everyone of where we stand in this incident. If at all possible, we may be able to start sending some personnel home, as that will put us halfway through the incident and hopefully no more people will become ill.

SUMMARY INCIDENT ACTION PLAN PHASE FIVE 4 Ethics, Standards, and Public Information Anyone in the emergency services profession wants to believe they do the best job possible and does it in a way that not only keeps victims safe but keeps themselves safe as well. They like to think they use the best of ethics and keeps the public aware of any situation to the best of their abilities. However, there may be times when they are met with a situation that would call this into question such as a child in trouble, keep themselves safe, or take the risk and help the child as an example. Ethics, standards and informing the public that is one of the essential core responsibilities of any emergency services worker to build a report and trust within the community, without them any emergency services person would be fighting an uphill battle within the community. Ethics Ethics would be an easy concept to grasp if it had the same meaning for everyone, but it does not. When a person thinks of ethics, they believe in terms of what is morally correct. What one person may consider as morally right may not be morally right for another. Making decisions as an officer of emergency services then becomes difficult because they want to make a morally correct decision. For a chief officer to make decisions, there may be a conflict between personal ethics and professional ethics as professional ethics now includes behaviors that need to comply with company policies and procedures like performing due diligence for the safety of the workers and the public. Ethics is very important to the emergency services profession in the respect that it will determine if you are a trustworthy person in the eyes of the community and for the agency you work. If you hold information back from the public, for example, and it is found out, the agency has lost the trust of the community because they will no longer trust that they are being told what is needed to help keep them safe (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.
