RE: Week 7 Discussion

Enslavement is the worst action bestowed on a person and/or group of people mankind has ever committed. Slavery has unfortunately existed throughout human history and even though this class is covering slavery during the 16th century until the late 19th century, slavery occurred before then being present in prior empires, and sadly slavery still exists in the modern day throughout the world, and in the US still with human trafficking.

A typical slave in the early Americas, if they were lucky enough to survive the trip across the Atlantic as many died, consisted of working from sun up to sun down. Slaves experienced a variety of different lives, none of them suitable for human life. Brazil, the Caribbean Islands, and the South was the destinations slaves were sent to. In Brazil and the Caribbean, slaves worked primary in plantation fields raising sugarcane. This labor was extensively brutal labor around the clock, many slaves died as a result of violent deaths by their masters, malnutrition, and disease due to poor living conditions. Slaves in the American South experienced a variety of ways of life. Tobacco, wheat, and cotton were the main crops raised with cotton being the overwhelming cash crop. Slaves in the upper south, where tobacco, rice, corn, and wheat were primarily raised, experienced a slave life, yes, but one with “free” time at the end of the days as they typically worked on smaller farms. Working in upper south being granted more personal time meant slaves were more likely to get educated, get religious worship time, have family time as some were allowed to marry. Slaves in the deep south worked in the large cotton fields having to work much longer and more in the grueling heat.

Experiences of slaves may have differed for many reasons. Some slave owners sought more value in slaves than other slave owners. As some slaves in the south were allowed to marry, as some of their masters saw value in this, they figured if slaves married and had families to care about, the less likely they will run away. Other slave masters without warning or reason would beat their slaves, rape the women, and punish them for no reason to keep fear in them from running away. In rare cases slaves in the upper south were granted freedom by their masters when some farmers switched from tobacco to raising wheat. These smaller farms in the upper south required less labor so slaves either eventually became free or were sold by their masters on the auction block again to the deep south. When slaves were sold again many families were broken up, many of these decisions happened based on the slave masters financial condition. If he was financially okay slaves could be set free, if he was financially not slaves were sold again so he could earn money.

Assignment Directions:
Chapter 3 of The Disciplines of Emergency Management: Mitigation describes mitigation as “a sustained action to reduce or eliminate risk to people and property from hazards and their effects.” The chapter further discussed how implementing mitigation programs and activities requires the participation and support of a broad spectrum of stakeholders, both within and outside emergency management circles. Furthermore, the authors make a number of important distinctions between mitigation and the other emergency management disciplines, particularly preparedness.

In addition, both Chapter 3 and the National Mitigation Framework resource (introduced in this module) described the roles and responsibilities of various actors having an impact on the field of emergency management. In particular, the whole Community approach to achieving goals was emphasized.

Taking into consideration the above material, please identify a mitigation activity in which your organization or community has been involved, and critically analyze this activity in terms of the following:

• Describe the mitigation project.

• Who was involved (public agencies, private organizations, NGO’s, etc.). Were there any similarities or differences from those listed in the applicable learning units?

• What impact did the mitigation project have on your community and/or organization? Please be specific.

• In addition, please do an Internet search and incorporate at least one example from current events related to mitigation to further augment your answer.

In terms of critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR), an asset is a person, structure, facility, information, material, or a process that has value. For example, in the transportation sector, a bridge would be an asset.

A network is a group of related components that interact with each other or share information to perform a function. For example, a light rail system that crosses multiple jurisdictions in a large metropolitan area would be considered a network.

A system is any combination of facilities, personnel, equipment, procedures, and communications integrated for a specific purpose. For example, the U.S. interstate highways comprise a system within the transportation sector.

A sector consists of a logical collection of interconnected assets, systems, or networks that provide a common function to society, the economy, or the government. For example, the transportation sector consists of vast, open, accessible, interconnected systems, which include the aviation, maritime, pipeline, highway, freight rail, and mass-transit systems.

  • Address the following in 3–4 pages:
    • For each of the 18 CIKR sectors, identify 1–2 local examples of critical infrastructure.
      • Briefly describe the examples, and explain how they are operated and utilized.
      • Provide any information that you feel is unique to each sector.
    • In your local community, research the infrastructure, and identify one particular element that may be of particular interest to a terrorist or vulnerable to natural or manmade disaster.
      • Are there any protective measures in place to ensure its safety? Describe.
