1 organizational chart with descriptions of 50–100 words
Create an organizational chart that outlines the roles and responsibilities of those who would respond to a large chemical spill in the city.
You should presume that local, state, and federal personnel and resources will be involved in the response.
Be sure to highlight what organization should take the lead in the response.
Your chart should not only list each organization but should also provide brief descriptions (50–100 words) of the organization’s responsibility.
For example, the local fire department’s response would include the following:
Determine the identity of the materials involved.
Determine the type and severity of hazards present.
Assess the threat to human health and environment.
Assess the need for evacuations, site control, security, and notifications.
Direct interim remedial procedures to limit the spread of the materials.
