Thisassignment accomplishes that;goal by challenging you to;?;Identify resources that are available in your;home community;?;Contact individuals in your community who;serve as early responders in emergency or crisis situations;?;Create a Decision Tree tool that could be used;in times of crisis to respond efficiently to a specific emergency situation;The purpose of this assignment is to provide;you with the knowledge necessary for creating a Decision Tree linking community;resources during emergencies and in times of crisis. Decision Trees are used to;quickly identify the resources available in your community and to establish a;protocol for contacting these resources when making decisions and referrals on;behalf of clients.;Human service workers need to know who to;contact and what protocols to follow in;case of emergencies (ICE). When working with the public, workers often;encounter a variety of circumstances where interventions on behalf of clients;become necessary and need to happen quickly. The Decision Tree should help in;quickly answering the question of what;to do next.;Below is a list of potential;services, organizations, agencies, and contacts that may be available in your;community. Also consider that you may need to contact family, schools, churches;and other resources that seem reasonable at the time.;?;Domestic Violence Hotline/Shelter;?;Rape Crisis Hotline/Shelter;?;Special Needs shelters;?;Pet friendly shelters;?;Crisis Team/Facility ? mental health;?;Crisis Team/Facility ? substance abuse;?;Child Protective Services;?;Emergency Medical Evaluation Team;?;Emergency Transportation;?;Adult/Elderly Protective Services;?;Suicide hotline;?;WICK ? baby formula provider;?;Emergency Pharmacy;?;Food Bank/Pantry;?;First Responders ?

This;project is designed for practical application. The Decision Tree can be used in;real-life situations and should be designed so that it can be used for various;service interventions. In addition to your Decision Tree, include the contact;information for each site and documentation of your interviews.;You will conduct a study of the community;resources for the field of Human Services. If you are majoring in a different;discipline (i.e., I/O or Criminal Justice) you may choose to create a Decision;Tree according to your discipline of study.;Step 1: Identify a potential crisis or;emergency where you would have to intervene on behalf of a client. For example;a client tells you that she is afraid to go home due to abuse she has been;suffering in the home.;Step 2: Identify organizations, shelters;social service agencies, and first responders in your community that could be;potential referral sources for this situation.;Step 3: Identify the contact person or;department for each of these resources. Be sure to include phone numbers;emails, faxes, and addresses for each.;Step 4: Contact in person or by phone each;resource on your list and ask the questions below. Be sure to document each;response. Document any important additional information you glean during your;information-gathering calls or visits.

You will have to develop a plan of action and put the;first step you need to take at the top with each of the next steps in order of;how you would carry out the plan of action. You should have at least three;tiers of contacts in your Decision Tree.;Step 6;Documentation ? be sure to include a place on your spreadsheet or graph where;you can include any required follow?up documentation and notes. You may also;put this information in a separate document.;This chart is an example (may not;be included in the actual exercise). Excel or SmartArt can be used - using Word;Insert>SmartArt Graphics
