Journal

The threat of a large-scale biological attack on U.S. soil warrants an adequate federal biodefense policy and programs for consequence management. One major challenge is the decontamination process after a large biological event. A significant amount of decontamination research has been conducted but not yet fully integrated into a federal government biological decontamination policy.


What are some recommendations for practical steps that can be taken to address the absence of a major federal government biological decontamination policy? What are some of the gaps that must be rectified? How can you, as an emergency manager, contribute to closing these gaps?


Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary. 

Unit VI Scholarly Activity

Your textbook describes the challenges and mass hysteria that would be present in a widespread biological attack. It also discusses the different ways that people might react. Some will take themselves to the hospital because they become psychosomatic, clogging the hospital with unnecessary walk-in patients. On the other hand, others will refuse to be vaccinated and will risk spreading the biological agent.

In addition, watch this short video segment on Responsible Reporting of a Bioterrorism Attack (Segment 10 of 15) to get a better insight about response to a hypothetical bioterrorism attack on a U.S. city.

Video transcript (attached)

In this environment, what would you do if you were the decision-maker following a widespread biological attack? Contrast the two models of public health response discussed in the textbook (coercive and cooperative) to a bioterrorism attack, and describe how they might be employed in a bioterrorism attack response. Explain the process of decontamination and how it impacts a bioterrorism event and the importance of tracking a bioterrorism attack on the population.

Your assignment must be at least two pages in length and in APA style. You are required to use at least one outside source besides the textbook. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying APA citations. Ensure that your assignment begins with an introduction

Week VI study guide is attached for guidance.
