Module 4 – SLP ( Wrietr: Please write 3 pages with refencence for this assignment

National Strategy for Public Health and Medical Preparedness (HSPD 21)

Assume that the state most affected by the disaster you selected has an operating capability similar to that of Michigan. A cornerstone of the Michigan Homeland Security Plan is based on the Michigan Emergency Drug Delivery Resource Utilization Network (MEDDRUN), which in turn relies on 18 local area hospital medical helicopters (similar to Life Flight helicopters) to deliver critical medications and medical supplies in case of a disaster. Other states have similar programs.

12 days into the disaster, the National Guard has been activated by the State Governor, and about 90% of needed supplies are secure and being delivered to the local population.

The hospital helicopter fleet has been flying virtually non-stop in support of delivering medical supplies, and has been ordered to cease operations for 48 hours following two fatal crashes which destroyed both helicopters and 2,000 pounds of necessary medical supplies each. National Guard helicopters are unavailable to participate in restoring the MEDDRUN capabilities to the 200 Type1 Points of Distribution (PODs), each serving 20,000 people daily in the affected area. So far, local commanders and law enforcement report that there is no violence or looting, but fear that it may soon follow.

Explain the impact of the lost capabilities without the MEDDRUN helicopters.

What recommendations would you make to restore the lost transportation capabilities over the next 48 hours?
What messages would you advise making to the local population, and how would you communicate them?
How can you ensure the ability to replace the lost capacity to move nearly 150 tons of medical supplies daily?
