Prepare a four to six page analyses of a critical incident response issue(s) in the context of historical event or events. The paper will be prepared in accordance with APA (6th) format. The paper should also reference any relevant government policy. Other sources should be evaluated for their credibility (just because it is on the web does not mean it is an accurate trusted source). The issue must also be linked to experience in at least one critical incident as part of the discussion. Previous incidents will be discussed in the scholarly articles; more information can be developed directly from AAR reports.
