Types of Hazards, Information, Evacuation

In your opinion, why does the ODP focus its preparedness efforts on  terrorism? Should preparedness activities funded by the ODP be for all  hazards? Why or why not?

Other than the media and risk managers, where do you get your  information about hazards, risks, and disasters? How do you determine  the credibility of the information you receive?

Why is evacuation planning so difficult? Consider communication and  community response. What kinds of things can go wrong during an  evacuation? What do you think can be done to minimize these potential  setbacks?
