Addressing the Effects of Flooding on Fire Department Operations in the Rockdale County Fire Department
National Fire Academy, 2010 - 56 pagina's
The descriptive research method was used to answer the following questions: a) How is the flood risk for Rockdale County changing over time?, b) What are the implications of governments not implementing storm water utility planning?, c) How is the mission of emergency services compromised during a flooding event?, d) What is a 100 year flood and how many have occurred in Rockdale County? This research project included a survey, interviews with professional engineers and an extensive review of rainfall data which produced a most interesting result, which is that Rockdale County's storm water system has almost reached its full capability and impervious spaces are becoming more and more prevalent and consequently without some restraint we will fall victim to our own aspirations for growth and development.
