    184184The task is to describe how your local emergency response organisations and citizens plan to act in a disaster, and to collect real or at least realistic data which can be used to demonstrate some of the capabilities of Sahana Eden, if it were being used by those agencies. The task requires research on disaster preparedness and response capabilities in your location.
    185185
    186 There are two goals for this task:  One is to prepare data that can be used to run a disaster simulation.  But the other is for you to become familiar with the emergency response agencies and procedures in your area.

    188 The first step is to identify the organisations that provide emergency response in your area. For example, these might be:

     188The first step is to identify the main organisations that provide emergency response in your area. For example, these might be:
    189189 * Local government emergency management agency
    190190 * Local office of the national government emergency management agency
     
    193193 * Citizen preparedness groups and citizen emergency response groups

    195 You will need to collect some data and save them in a format that can be imported directly into Sahana Eden through the Pre-Populate functionality. This will be achieved by creating a number of CVS files and conforming strictly to the format described in each file.
     195Try to identify about four agencies. What does each agency do in an emergency. Do the agencies coordinate activities with each other? How do they communicate with the public? What should citizens be watching for, so they can be sure not to miss emergency messages?
     196
     197Next choose a type of emergency to describe. Is there a type of emergency that is common in your area? or a type that people are concerned about? Look for information about what to expect in such an emergency -- what the agencies will do, and what citizens are supposed to do.
     198
     199You will need to collect some data, and invent other data as needed, and save them in a format that can be imported directly into Sahana Eden through the Pre-Populate functionality. This is done by creating a number of CVS files that conform carefully to the format described in each file. Template CSV files are attached to this page (see Attachments below).

    197201Note: When adding personal information it is essential that the data have been modified such that it can not be used to identify any real person. As a general rule all email addresses should be from the example.com domain, thus the email address for Joe Bloggs might be joe.bloggs@example.com, phone numbers should look realistic but should not be true numbers.
