    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
     
    193193 * Citizen preparedness groups and citizen emergency response groups
    194194
    195 Try 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?

    196196
    197197Next 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.
    198198
    199 You 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).
    200 
    201 Note: 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.
    202 
    203 Within Eden all email addresses must be unique, so as to avoid any clash with existing data or data generated by other participants include your melange id immediately before the @, thus for an id of 2154, joe blogg's email would become  joe.bloggs2154@example.com.
     199For a simulation using Eden, data is needed that represents the organisations, their offices, staff, equipment, and supplies. With this, participants can role-play activities performed during the emergency, such as assigning staff, requisitioning equipment, and distributing supplies. You will need to collect some real 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).
     200
     201The real data would include the names, locations, and contact information for the organisations. Invented data would be locations of offices and warehouses, names and skills of staff, and what equipment and supplies they have available.
     202
     203Note: When adding invented personal information it is essential that the names and contact information do not match any real person. All email addresses can be from the example.com domain, thus the email address for an invented person named Joe Bloggs might be joe.bloggs1234@example.com, phone numbers should be in a legal format for the locale, but should not be real phone numbers.
     204
     205Within Eden all email addresses must be unique. To avoid any clash with existing data or data generated by other participants, you can include your melange id immediately before the @, thus for an id of 2154, Joe Blogg's email would become joe.bloggs2154@example.com.
    204206
    205207To complete the task you will need to meet the following minimum specifications:
    206208
    207209Each scenario must contain a (short) description. This must be no more than about 1000 words (about 2 pages of text) describing the following:
    208  * The location (country, province, town,...) and setting (what is the area like?).
     210 * The location (country, province, town,...) and setting (what is the area like? are there local geological or other features that contribute to disasters?).
    209211 * The type of disaster the organistions are preparing for.
    210212 * What does each organisation do in a disaster?
     
    212214 * Are there any known problems with existing disaster response capabilities?
    213215
    214 
    215 
     216If there are instructions online for what citizens should do to prepare for emergencies, or in the event of an emergency, include those.
     217
     218Collect (or invent) these amounts of data for each type of resource:
    216219||= Type of resource =||= Number of entries =||= File =||
    217220|| Organisation || 4|| org/organisation.csv ||
     
    223226|| Stock || 80|| inv/inv_item.csv ||
    224227
    225 To enter the data in a spreadsheet, download the attached archive file "research disaster scenario.zip".
    226 That has appropriate columns for the data to collect -- open this in your spreadsheet program.
    227 
    228 (Note to mentors: The recommended means of testing the data for this task is, attempt to import the data into eden using the menus. However, the student is encouraged to try and set it up in a pre-populate folder. In that case, test by attempting to import the data in a pre-populate folder. The data must be delivered in a single folder suitable for pre-populate even if the student was unable to run the pre-populate task.)
     228To enter the data in spreadsheets, download the attached archive file "research disaster scenario.zip".
     229That has appropriate CSV files with appropriate columns for the data to collect. Package the filled CSV files in a zip file like the original download.
     230
     231(Note to students: If you have Eden installed -- which is recommended -- you can try uploading your data through the "pre-populate" function. Ask on IRC about this. Note to mentors: The recommended means of testing the data for this task is to attempt to import the data in a pre-populate folder.)
