The Theme of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson


This book is about a young boy who worked with his mom at her inn and a map of buried treasure. One day a strange pirate came in and asked the boy to look out for another pirate with one leg in town. The strange pirate is killed soon after and he leaves behind a map to treasure island. The boy and some town leaders set sail for the island with the captain letting a pirate with one leg choose the crew. When they reach the island Long John Silvers (The one legged pirate) betrays them with his buccaneer crew and kills several of the good crew. The rest of the crew run off to hide and find out there’s a man stranded on the island and he has already found the treasure and hidden it away. The good crew end up killing all the pirates except Long John Slivers who they try to take home but he escapes and is never to be seen again.
My opinion of the theme is one where Jim (the boy) is faced with many difficult decisions regarding the outcome of the story and the way its characters develop throughout. The other half is whether or not Long John Silvers gets the treasure before Jim and his group.
I think the authors view is one of similarity to mine and does not very much as far as I can tell. I doubt the author had any other plot or theme ideas besides the ones I stated so far.
So as you can see this book is relatively a short story compared to some books and makes up for it’s lack in pages in adventure and its thrilling theme and characterization. Not many of the characters survive but the ones that do undergo much characterization throughout, adding to the theme.

ICS (Incident Command Center)

Aside Posted on Updated on

                                            Incident Command System (ICS)

The Incident Command System is a systematic tool used for the coordination and control of an emergency situation. The person in control is called the incident commander or IC he is in charge of the whole operation and has up to 32 groups of specialists under him. here is a layout of the ICS grouping:

As you can see there are many different groups of people under the IC the 3 main officers under the IC are the public information officer he is in charge of coordinating information to news stations and reporters and controlling its feed.

The next is the Liaison officer he controls the contact of representatives and their involvment in the SAR operation taking place. And finally the Safety officer who oversees the whole operations safety standpoint and if need be interacts new rules to keep everyone safe.

You can see the ICS is a very organized group with its intentions being to safely control the SAR operation the local SAR group is pulling off at the time. It has one main control rule, “no one person has less than 3 or more than 7 people under him or her.” To stop one person being swamped by having to organize too many people at once.
