- Discuss how the National Planning Frameworks core capabilities and guiding principles applied to the Hurricane Matthew response.
- How did the federal government prepare in advance for the landfall of Hurricane Matthew under the National Response Framework (NRF)?
- How did communities apply the community approach to prepare and respond to Hurricane Matthew?
- In your opinion, was the National Preparedness Goal achieved?
Your submission should be a minimum of three pages, not including the title and reference pages. You should support your analysis with strong arguments and evidence. You may use the two sources listed above as a basis for your analysis, but you must conduct additional research and use at least two additional sources. Your case study and all sources used should be formatted in APA style.
