In the final paper, students will be required to research any technology used in emergency management that we discussed in class. After researching how a specific technology is being used in all phases of emergency management, students will be required to write a 12-14 page paper containing their findings. They will need to include specific cases in which these technologies were deployed or used in a natural disaster in the last 5 years. In describing the cases, students need to evaluate the effectiveness of the technologies and discuss any challenges to interoperability or any other barriers that were faced by emergency managers. Finally, students should highlight how these technologies are changing and might be used 5 to 10 years from now by emergency managers.
