Unit 3 Scholarly Activity EMS Disasters

Unit III Scholarly Activity
Initial Rapid Assessment
This activity requires that you locate the World Health Organization (WHO) initial rapid assessment form described on pages 190-191 of your textbook. Once you have reviewed the description, research an initial rapid assessment form, such as the WHO generic form or one for a specific state (e.g., Georgia has modified the form for use). Once you have reviewed the rapid needs assessment (RNA) form, construct a summary of what your EMS organization could best assist with for assessing each of the six sections of the form. Summarize your report by indicating why it is important for an EMS organization to be familiar with the RNA form that would be used, prior to an emergency.
Your paper should be a minimum of two pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. You must cite all websites and resources used in constructing your scholarly activity. It is not necessary to cite the section headings. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted materials must have accompanying citations in accordance with APA standards.
