Case Study, Focus On Fires And Fire Prevention In Your Community



For the Unit II Case Study, you will focus on fires and fire prevention in your community, specifically structural fires and wildfires. Start by conducting research around your community/location for examples of mitigation and fire prevention, such as sprinkler systems, emergency fire exits, or fire hydrants. Take photographs (ok to use pics found on internet) of what you find so that you can show your professor what your area has done to address the issue of fires.

Using what you learned about your community and what you learned about past fires from this course, write a case study, a minimum of four pages in length, that addresses the following points:

  • Explain what has been done with regard to      mitigation, recovery, and/or response efforts within your community. When      looking for potential threats, consider wildlands, explosions, or home      fires, and, for mitigation, examples include building codes and      fireproofing.
  • Explain who conducted these efforts and      the vulnerabilities they faced in their community, and include the role      these individuals or groups play with mitigating, responding, and/or      recovering from the risk.
  • Examine the causes and recovery efforts of      at least one past fire that either occurred in your community or that you      have researched. Explain the causes and contributing factors of this fire.
  • Examine the vulnerability in a larger      context. Considering past fires, either in your community or surrounding      areas, do you feel your community has done enough to prevent future fires?      Why, or why not? What recommendations can you offer to your community to      address future risks?
  • Consider vulnerability theory and use it      to help you explain how your community may be vulnerable to fire, followed      by systems theory to help you discuss the systems (organizations,      policies, procedures, etc.) in place to mitigate the fire hazard.

Your paper should be a minimum of four pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. You are required to use a minimum of three outside sources as part of your case study. All sources, including the textbook, must be cited and referenced according to APA guidelines.

Additionally, include at least four visual aids/images that support your content (one 4-by-4-inch image per page maximum). Please incorporate those into your paper in APA format.
