Reaching A Target Audience About Water Safety Research Paper


Community Mapping

I am Ember contacting the local Walmart manager Debra to talk to her about the water crisis issues. The number one health risk/hazard in the community is the water problem: the residents are constantly being reminded to boil their water. This is an ongoing problem. Residents have been advised to boil all water for at least one minute before using it for drinking, cooking, or brushing teeth. While boiling water is an effective way to kill bacteria, it is not the only precaution that residents should take. Those with compromised immune systems, young children, and older adults are especially vulnerable to bacterial infections and should take extra care to avoid contaminated water. My priority health risk hazard is this water crisis/boil alert in Jackson and addressing it appropriately.

The plan for resolving the communitys health risk priority is to provide an educational intervention (boil water before use). I want to improve compliance with the boil water alert and get people in the community to use boiled or bottled water before making ice, brushing teeth, and food preparations; educating on the local spots where bottles of water will be issued; increasing knowledge about signs and symptoms that a person...…it safe to drink.

I would offer also that it is important to be sure to include contact information for the local water utility in case people have questions or need more information. Debra would agree, and would ask that this contact information be included on any material made available for handing out. By taking these steps, I think that we can help ensure that people have the information they need to stay safe during a boil water alert. Debra would have some good ideas on how best to communicate this information to shoppers since she works and interacts with them on a daily basis:…

Water Pollution Water is an important natural resource upon which all the living beings rely for their existence and growth. Nature has blessed the earth with uncountable water resources but usable quantity is limited. Hence, it is important to use water sparingly. The irony is, human activities result is high water pollution which further shortens the water supply for use. "In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind

Water Global Human Needs System Thinking and Transformative Social Systems in Sustainability It is a fact that above 70% of the surface of the Earth is water. However, the real issue despite the abundance of water is the availability of fresh water (Amanda, 2013). Of the total waters on Earth, 97.5% of this is salty water; this leaves only a 2.5% as fresh water. To add on this deafening fact, of all

In the absence of proper waste management laws and regulations, as well as poor enforcement of existing waste disposal laws, an increase in the number of manufacturing entities would inevitably increase instances of water pollution. According to Goel (2006), the mere fact that smaller cities report less instances of water pollution than larger cities is a clear indicator of the relationship that exists between population density and water pollution

Water Pollution

Water Pollution The vast majority -- over 70% -- of our earth is covered by water. Unfortunately for our thirst, 97.5% of all the water on the planet is salt water. Only 2.5% of the water on planet earth is fresh drinking water. Given that there is such a small percentage of drinkable water on the planet, the resource has become a scarce commodity. Making matters worse is the fact that

Water Privatization How Privatization of Water is Bad for the World Water is a scarce resource, a fact that is becoming more evident as time goes on and pollution becomes more evident. There are many instances where privatization has been beneficial; bureaucratic red tape often makes policy making a headache for consumers, and some eagerly advocate for privatization of certain resources. Privatization often has advantages, but in many instances it also realizes

Although the Murray-Darling River covers only about 14% of Australia's irrigated land, 50% of Australia's sheep and 25% of Australia's cattle rely on this source. Also, 40% of the nation's rice crop and 80% of its canned fruit product relies on the Murray-Darling River Complex. In all, three-quarters of Australia's water comes from the Murray-Darling River (Hussainy, p. 205). Of course there are conflicts when so much is at stake.
