These incidents are reported across a large-scale area. You have received an emergency declaration from your Mayor and are asked to immediately respond and implement the Incident Command System (ICS) and emergency management response.

This includes flowing past an industrial business park where several manufacturing plants and where houses store various dangerous chemicals and much of the cities food storage, and the cities vibrant downtown riverfront district, which includes, shopping, restaurants, and condominiums. This severe flooding has caused the North River to displace all businesses within one block of the river and some residences in the downtown riverfront area.
The North River has not flooded in over 100 years and this event was unplanned. The assignment requires a response plan to the flooded area along with the coordination and implementation of a disaster response.
