Discussion: The Role of Federal, State, and Local Standards on Local Emergency Management It might seem to most people that having federal standards in emergency management would be advantageous when coordinating multiple responders. Standardization sets the tone for guiding the role of different government levels in emergency management. Emergency managers face several challenges when planning for and responding to emergencies. They must not only understand their role within different government levels, but must also comply with federal, state, and local standards in coordinating response and recovery efforts. For this Discussion, review the media and Learning Resources for this week. Think about the role of federal, state, and local standards on local emergency management. Then determine which level of government standards you think is most appropriate for emergency management at the local level. Then consider the impact of federal standards on local response. Reflect on how federal and/or local standards for emergency management differ. By Day 4 Post an explanation of your position of which level of government standards you think should apply to emergency management at the local level. Justify your position using the Learning Resources and provide examples. Be sure to use the Learning Resources and current literature to support your response.
