Crisis and disaster events can evoke overwhelming emotions: anxiety, anger, uncertainty, helplessness, and a sense of threat to our basic safety and security. In addition, for some the events may provoke earlier traumatic memories from a similar situation and/or intensify preexisting emotional difficulties. Crisis events undermine the sense that we have control over our lives, harm social resilience, and raise levels of anxiety and emotional distress among all of us: children, youth, and adults alike. At times, the emotional overload can paralyze us, leading us to close ourselves off and avoid contact with others. However, talking about our most difficult fears and disturbing thoughts can bring a great sense of relief during times of emotional distress.

In addition to listing hazards and evaluating risk, it is important to map the community’s diverse populations. For example, the community may contain groups of people who require special attention to ensure they receive information in a timely fashion. Does the community have members who speak a language other than the dominant one? If so, what sources do they use to get information? Are there community members who are unable to read? How do they get their information? What are the sources for people who are deaf or blind? Some of this information regarding community populations may be available through local services. Officials in various departments—for example, education, social and health services—may be familiar with various ethnic and language groups in the community.

5 Principles for Operating a Municipal Model During an Emergency
Dr. Moran Bodas & Prof. Kobi Peleg
To contain the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, health and government authorities have imposed sweeping selfquarantine
orders for communities worldwide. Health officials assume that the public will have high rates of compliance. However, studies
suggest that a major obstacle to compliance for household quarantine is concern about loss of income. A cross-sectional study of the adult population of Israel was conducted in the last week of February 2020 to assess public attitudes toward the COVID-19 outbreak. In particular, public compliance rates with self-quarantine were assessed, depending on whether lost wages would be compensated for. When compensation was assumed, the compliance rate was 94 percent. When compensation was removed, the compliance rate dropped to less than 57 percent. This study demonstrated that providing people with assurances about their livelihoods during self-quarantine is an important component of compliance with public health regulations.
