Review “Anytown Historical Timeline.” Notice there are missing details for some very significant events since the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. All of these events impacted the development of the field of emergency management, some to a lesser extent than you might imagine.

Likewise, though the United States has faced numerous devastating natural disasters over the past century, as was made evident in “Hurricane Katrina: A Nation Still Unprepared,” our experiences have not necessarily translated into improved preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery practices. It is your job to investigate some tough questions about the state of emergency management in the nation and complete the following two-part assignment:
