Readiness of Social Service Providers to Emergencies in the District of Frydek-Mistek.
This bachelor thesis observes readiness of social service providers for emergencies in the district of Frýdek-Místek. It assesses staff awareness and overall preparedness of social service providers in emergencies and also compares the findings with those obtained within the South Bohemian Region. The theoretical part of my thesis deals with the topic of social services and emergencies. The chapter on social services introduces basic concepts of the field, individual types of social services and their description. The following chapter focuses on emergencies -- it defines the basic terminology, familiarises with the types of emergencies and describes the territory of the Frýdek-Místek district in terms of its threats, which are described in more detail. The research part of the thesis was based on a questionnaire survey. The questionnaires were intended for the directors and responsible managers of social service providers -- the qualitative research method was used for this target group -- as well as for the staff of social service providers, using quantitative research. Social facilities selected for this purpose had to correspond with two criteria - the first criterion being the social facilities provided residential form of social service, and the second being suitable for the disabled. The questionnaire survey revealed the unreadiness of the social service providers for emergency incidents in the Frýdek-Místek district. The results did not reach the established success rate of 80% and discovered that the staff of these researched facilities were not informed sufficiently on their facilities' emergency strategies. Comparing these results with those from the South Bohemian Region, it was found that the level of awareness and preparedness of social service providers for emergency situations is equally inadequate in both cases.
