Scene awareness

Following the terror attack on the Coliseum, emergence management services have been made available through different teams. The teams have formed a 180 degree perimeter around the coliseum. From this point the casualties are picked and headed to a medical facility. The most critical casualties are first headed to the nearest local hospital as well as those in need of specialized service offered at the specific hospitals. The emergency operations plan aimed to serve more than just a mere plan. Having carried out the plans helps the personnel become familiar with roles, and skills required to handle the tasks. The EOP also facilitates the response and short term recovery. This ensures that the response actions are time-sensitive and saves on time. The basic detail for an EOP is getting to decide what audience of the EOP need to know. The information of the specific behavior that the individual needs to carry out is referenced in an appropriate manner.

The emergence operation plan provides more details of functional annexes and the hazards specific appendices. The functional annexes revolve around plans organized on how to carry out a broad task. Each annex in geared towards one critical emergency functions that needs to be performed an s a way emergency response. The number and variations of these annexes depend on the jurisdiction, needs, capabilities and nature of organization. The annexes are meant for use by those specialized to doing a certain task. The hazard specific appendices are important in provision of details that would be useful in the instance of some particular hazard. With this mind, this scenario requires the SWAT team male of both appendices to plan how to carry out their rescue operations. With the heavy smoke allover, the SWAT teams will have to bear with the situation and at the same time respond to fire from the terrorist.

The efforts of the emergency respondents are to ensure incident stabilization. It is therefore important that the available groups collaborate and function under one objective. In this case, the public emergency services such as fire services should be tasked with rescue operations, control of hazardous material and offering medical emergency services. In this scenario, as these service providers try to breach the wall and allow those trapped inside to be accessed, the SWAT team should covered these agents form direct fire emanating from the terrorists. They should shift the terrorist attention from the ongoing rescue operations.

Emergence medical services will need to be availed to the casualties. In this connection, there should be an onsite base for handling minor issues and carrying out initial assessment to determine the specialized services that a casualty requires. This will helpful in guiding the emergence medical providers decide on the facility to refer them to and the means of transport to be used whether through airlifting of by ambulance.

The media plays an important tool in spreading out the news about the occurrence of an incident. This was evident with the September 11 attack where the media captured some of the crucial footage. However the news reports on terrorism and other act sometimes may be skewed due to lack of inaccurate, partial and sensational coverage which may cause the audience to misunderstand the risk. The reporting may aid to give information the much needed information on the situation and determine where to improve on their attacks and also aid their escape plans. The terrorist also take advantage of the extreme measure at which the media will go to in covering a terror act thereby spreading there gospel by capturing that attention of the world. The media should engage in a manner that do not glorify the terror act nor provide important news flash to the terrorist that may help them regroup and re-strategize.
