Active Shooter Case Analysis
Write an analysis of at least 1,000 words that relate the case to preparedness, response, and NIMS (National Incident Manager System).
Discuss what went right, what could be improved, and how it could be improved upon regarding preparation and response in the active shooter AAR. Discuss the role of the players and partners in incident command, communications, and coordination of response resources. How was the whole community involved in the incident?
In your analysis, reference and cite other scholarly sources you use. In discussing case events and your assessment of them, make reference to applicable sections of the HSPD/NPG/NPS/NIMS/NRF or NDRF to support your analysis. Do not quote extensively from these documents; be selective. Remember this is an analysis, not a summary of the events of the case. Write comprehensively, yet concisely, in order to be as thorough as you can. Use APA format for citations and references.
Case Analysis postings will be graded on an understanding of the case, understanding of National Preparedness System, National Incident Management System, National Response Framework, and inter-jurisdictional interrelationship for response and recovery; efforts to explore concepts, ideas, and perspectives (demonstration of critical thinking skills), as well as the quality and quantity of contributions. You are expected to offer your own viewpoints, be inquisitive, and disagree with and challenge the Case Analysis author; however, do not be overly critical, negative, or rude. Grading criteria will also include analysis clarity and accuracy, logic, argumentation, organization, expression, following instructions, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and appropriate citations. Significant grade reductions of 20% or more will be made for posts that lack clarity, accuracy, and logic, with excessive colloquialisms, are unsupported, or with errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation reflecting poor proofreading and editing.
