Chapter four of the textbook describes the beginning of congressional legislation with the Federal Disaster Relief Act of 1950 and continues through the 1960s and 1970s. In each decade, the focusing events are identified, as well as mobilization, agenda-setting, and the subsequent congressional legislation.
Choose a decade (1950s, 1960s, or 1970s). Identify and discuss the focusing events that caused mobilization, agendasetting, legislative actions, and the notable outcome that changed emergency management. Research additional information about the focusing event and/or the resulting congressional legislation.
Present the findings in a PowerPoint Presentation with a minimum of 12 slides, including the title slide and the reference slide. Format the references in APA style (6th ed.). Use the notes section below each slide for descriptions and explanations.
