Prepare a 1,000 word document on the disaster risk communication during the mitigation phase of emergency management. The assignment should cover key issues identified in the week’s readings and incorporate current research on the topic. The assignment should focus on your community or a community of choice if you reside outside of the United States.
Remember to support your work with APA references and ensure the document complies with all APA formating. I encourage you to also use academic, peer-reviewed resources within your assignment.
