The Essential Emergency Manager
One of our greatest challenges as emergency managers is proving our value to elected officials, the tax paying public and even to each other. When we get that quizzical look from the budget people and the pointed question from public leaders, "What does the office of emergency management do. . . exactly?" we are abysmally bad at responding effectively. The complication is that emergency management is like insurance with an associated daily cost that no one wants to pay up front but whose value becomes apparent only when really bad things happen. Worse yet, because our primary mission is to enable effective action by OTHERS, it's precisely when we are doing our jobs well that we are almost invisible! This short graphic video is the NY-NJ-CT-PA Regional Catastrophic Planning Team's shot at explaining what we do and how we do it.

Create a Custom Emergency Preparedness Plan at GETaCOPP.com
Noah's Ark Customized Emergency Preparedness Plan, GETaCOPP.com, featured on PR Video, http://www.PRVideo.com Transcript: If you had to evacuate your home or workplace quickly, would you know what to do—what to bring, where to go, how to pick up your kids from their school or daycare? Now, hopefully that will never happen, but the last thing you want to be doing in an emergency situation is scrambling to find the answers to all these questions. Just like the fire drills we used to do in school, having a plan of action in place before an emergency strikes can lower stress and save lives. Now, it's simple to get "on board" this modern web-based ark with a free customized online preparedness plan—or COPP—from Noah's Ark and Company. Go to www dot get a copp dot com, and they'll walk you through the steps to creating a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan that's backed up 24/7 online, completely secure and accessible from anywhere you go. Simply gather your important information, such as out-of-area contacts, insurance numbers, and medical prescriptions, and enter it into your emergency preparedness profile. You can build your COPP a little bit at a time, and update it as more information becomes available, so it doesn't have to be an overwhelming task. Then, send a copy to your trusted designated emergency contacts, so they can take care of things for you, just in case you can't. For instance, it's crucial that they know if you are insulin dependent, or if your daughter is allergic to peanuts, and that they have contact information for your grown children, or for your son's father. Nobody thinks a disaster will strike them, until it does. Make sure you and your loved ones are prepared. Go to www.GETaCOPP.com to create your own free emergency preparedness plan today.

Building and Office Evacuation Training Video - Safetycare Workplace Fire Safety
There are many reasons why a building, or a group of buildings may need to be evacuated including: • Fires • Chemical Spills • Toxic or Explosive Gas Releases, • Explosions • Violent Behaviour, and • Bomb Threats. The larger the building, the more organisation is required to ensure everyone is evacuated effectively and as safely as possible. But regardless of the size or type of building or buildings, or number of employees, every organisation should have a tried and tested evacuation plan. This program covers: • The Evacuation Plan • The Evacuation Team • The Chief Warden • Your Responsibility • Training and Practice Every Building must have a tried and tested evacuation plan, and everyone must be familiar with it, and know their role.

Emergency Planning - V0002269EO
Existing OSHA, SARA Title III, and numerous state regulations call for all facilities to meet a number of Emergency Preparedness/Crisis Management requirements. These include: That every facility have an Emergency Plan that spells out what is to be done in case of an emergency. That this plan, as well as other important information, be shared with the local Emergency Planning Committee and emergency response groups such as the police, fire department and others. MARCOM's training products on Emergency Planning assist facilities in complying with these regulations and help them prepare for potential emergency situations. Topics covered in these products include: * The emergency planning process. * The threat of terrorism. * Your role in emergency planning. * Emergency action drills… the process. * Emergency action drills… playing your part. * and more.

New Disaster Preparedness Rule
The Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) posted its final rule in September entitled “Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers”. The rule is set to go into effect on November 16, 2016, with health care providers and suppliers affected by this rule required to comply and implement all regulations one year after the effective date, on November 16, 2017, according to the CMS. This rule will affect 72,315 American health care providers and suppliers – from hospitals and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to home healthcare and hospice to dialysis facilities and care homes for those with intellectual disabilities. The goal of the rule, according to the CMS, is to prevent severe breakdown in patient care that has followed past disasters, including Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy, and most recently the flooding in Louisiana. The rule is also designed to strengthen the ability to provide services during other types of emergencies, such as pandemics and terrorist attacks. The rule is unusual in that it has provisions for 17 different provider types, among them those that patients rely on to live at home, like outpatient surgery sites, physical therapy offices and home health care agencies. The rule “will make it more likely that facilities will be able to stay open and able to care for patients, and if they need to close or stop work temporarily, get back up and able to care for patients quickly,” said Dr. Nicole Lurie, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services. ”The need for patient care doesn’t stop because streets are flooded or trees are down. In fact disasters often increase the need for health care services.” Although the majority of organizations have had to adhere to at least some emergency preparedness requirements for accreditation, others were not subject to any, including hundreds of residential psychiatric facilities, nearly 200 community mental health centers, dozens of organ procurement organizations and nearly 4,000 outpatient hospices, which treat patients with limited life expectancies. “It’s going to have a big impact on these facilities,” said Emily Lord, the executive director of Healthcare Ready, a nonprofit focused on preparedness that provided feedback to the government on the implications of the rule,” in an article in the New York Times. Some feel the requirements under the new rule will be difficult for smaller facilities. Barbara B. Citarella, president of health care consulting group RBC Limited, was cited in the Times article as saying: ‘My concern is that compliance for some providers, especially home care and hospice, will be financially impossible.” The new as it relates to Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers specifically requires the following: 1. Emergency plan: Based on a risk assessment, develop an emergency plan using an all-hazards approach focusing on capacities and capabilities critical to preparedness for a full spectrum of emergencies or disasters specific to the location of a provider or supplier. 2. Policies and procedures: Develop and implement policies and procedures based on the plan and risk assessment. 3. Communication plan: Develop and maintain a communication plan that complies with both federal and state law. Patient care must be well coordinated within the facility, across health care providers, and with state and local public health departments and emergency systems. 4. Training and testing program: Develop and maintain training and testing programs, including initial and annual training, and conduct drills and exercises or participate in an actual incident that tests the plan. These standards, according to the CMS, are adjusted to reflect the characteristics of each type of provider and supplier. For example: outpatient providers and suppliers such as ambulatory surgical centers and end-stage renal disease facilities will not be required to have policies and procedures for provision of subsistence needs. Hospitals, critical access hospitals, and long-term care facilities will be required to install and maintain emergency and standby power systems based on their emergency plan. Caitlin Morgan specializes in insuring long-term care facilities, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities and home health care agencies. We can help you put together a robust insurance solution for these providers as well as assist in developing business continuity programs that include disaster planning. This is particularly critical in light of the new CMS rule that will affect Medicare and Medicaid participating providers.

The 7 Deadly Sins of Emergency Management
I varje kris utmanas människa och system att möta nya utmaningar och utstå nya prövningar. För även om krisen vid första anblicken kan te sig vara den andra lik är bakomliggande faktorer såsom robustheten i systemen, kunskapen hos de ansvariga och förmågan hos de som utför hanteringen ofta mycket olika. Gemensamt är dock att samhället av varje kris kan ta med sig lärdom och erfarenhet för att när nästa prövning kommer vara lite bättre förberedd. I USA är myndigheten Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) ansvarig för den nationella krishanteringen. Under 2009-2017 var Craig Fugate myndighetschef och ledde bara under 2011 den nationella krishanteringen vid över 80 nationella kriser och 2012 under orkanen Sandy som drabbade över 20 stater och bland annat gjorde New York översvämmat och strömlöst. Vilka kriser har format det amerikanska krishanteringssystemet och hur anpassas systemet i takt med att samhället och krisens karaktär förändras? Vilka är de viktigaste erfarenheterna från hundratals nationella kriser? Medverkande: Craig Fugate, former Administrator FEMA talar på engelska.

TCIP #019 - Emergency Management as a Field Rather Than a Profession With Dr. Thomas D. Phelan
This Podcast originally appeared on Melissa Agnes's blog: http://melissaagnes.com/tcip-019-emergency-management-as-a-field-with-dr-thomas-d-phelan/ Welcome to episode #019 of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, with Melissa Agnes and Dr. Thomas D. Phelan. Should emergency management be defined as a field or a profession? This is an age-old question, and one that Dr. Thomas D. Phelan and I discuss in this week's episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast. While discussing this issue, we explore how theory and practice can be combined within the classroom to provide students with the best skill-set possible as emergency managers - including those with zero tactical experience. We also explore the emergence of new technology for emergency management and how it is presenting a drastic change and challenges - as well as great opportunities - within this field. In fact, today so much of what is available to emergency managers to help them better do their job is digital. From mapping, to communicating, tracing developments of epidemics, reverse 911 - you name it. On the other hand, how can emergency managers combat information overload? Within this podcast, Dr. Tom and I also explore how cities, such as the city of New York, is taking on new practices within the school system to teach emergency preparedness to students - and their strategic plan for taking that education to the parents, in different languages. This episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast discusses: -The skill-set, specialties and disciplines needed to make emergency management as strong a field as possible. -The emergency manager's role in educating the public before, during and after a crisis or emergency situation. -The significant changes - and challenges - currently taking shape in emergency management. -Content analysis systems: What they are and how they benefit emergency managers. -Literacy levels and language barriers in emergency management. -How those interested can begin to take steps to enter into the field of emergency management. It's an informative listen and I welcome your feedback. How do you feel about emergency management as a field vs. a profession? How have you and your team been tackling these ever-evolving digital realities - both the risks and the opportunities that they present?

Disaster Planning for IT Services: Flood, Fire, Earthquake and Famine
From the 2002 CALI Conference for Law School Computing IT and Library personnel need to review their physical surroundings, equipment and procedures to determine what would happen in case of a flood (or other water-based disaster). What would happen to your servers and workstations in the event of an earthquake? In case of a fire, what will the sprinkler system do to your equipment? If you administer a computer lab, can your staff evacuate people in a disaster, or even provide medical treatment afterward? This session will be geared towards IT types who are in charge of the technology infrastructure of the law school, administrators who control funding, and anyone who works with or near a computer. Natural or man-made disaster can affect all aspects of law school operations. Earthquakes are uppermost in the mind of Californian's disaster planning, but earthquakes can happen in Seattle, upstate New York or even Memphis. What simple and not-so-simple steps can law schools take to reduce damage to IT equipment (and personnel) in the event of disaster. Loyola Law School is in the midst of reviewing all disaster procedures and has begun training law school personnel in the handling of disaster situations. This procedure has prompted a review of IT equipment location in view of preserving the equipment during a disaster and preventing the equipment from actually causing harm. Flooding at the University of Houston Law Library destroyed servers, hubs and switches in addition to workstations. What steps have they taken to prevent a reoccurrence.

School Safety Partners presents: The First 30 Seconds
School Safety Partners introduces "Safe Topics: The First 30 Seconds," an advanced rapid response training and evaluation system to prepare all school employees to make life-and-death decisions in the first moments of any school crisis. The multimedia learning system -- complete with trainer guides, evaluation tools, video scenarios, and workbooks for over 30 crisis scenarios -- is available to schools, first responders, and community stakeholders as part of "hands on" live trainings, facilitated by Visionbox Learning. Developed by world-renowned school safety expert Michael Dorn, "Safe Topics: The First 30 Seconds" is built on effective concepts that have been used in training law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical personnel, pilots and military personnel for many years. For the first time, these training concepts have been adapted for handling school crises, during which a delay of even five or ten seconds can result in mass casualties. Presented in 2011 to lawmakers and school safety directors at the Colorado State Capitol, the techniques used in "The First 30 Seconds" on audience members made clear that responding to school incidents requires a level of training that goes beyond drafting safety plans. Simulations conducted at schools around the nation revealed that most school employees unfamiliar with specialized training in rapid response miss at least one critical action step per scenario, such as initiating an evacuation, calling the main office, or dialing 911. For example, more than 70% of school employees participating in simulations failed to implement a lockdown for an aggressor with a weapon such as a knife, crow bar or hammer. According to Dorn, attacks with weapons other than firearms are far more common and can be just as deadly, and schools cannot afford to overlook any gap in preparedness. The video scenarios for "The First 30 Seconds" allow school employees to practice making life-and-death decisions in ways not possible with other types of drills and exercises. Using the Visionbox Learning version of the program, which includes exclusive guidance on interoperable communications with first responders, schools can practice for a wider array of situations in a shorter period of time, and quickly build what Dorn calls a "decision-making knowledge base." About Michael Dorn Michael Dorn is one of the top school safety experts in the world and is a popular writer, speaker, and media commentator on prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery strategies for K-12 and Higher Ed. At the national level, Dorn is called upon by states to train school districts and turn around persistently dangerous schools. Dorn serves as Executive Director for Safe Havens International, a global non-profit school safety center. He has authored and co-authored 25 books on school safety. His work has taken him throughout the United States, and to Central America, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Asia and the Middle East. A former Chief of Police for the Bibb County, Georgia School System and School Safety Specialist for the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, Office of the Governor, Dorn has been a full-time school safety practitioner for nearly forty years. Dorn is regularly interviewed by major media organizations including NPR, 20/20, CNN, Good Morning America, ABC, NBC, CBS, Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Times of London, Univision and Tokyo Broadcasting. About School Safety Partners School Safety Partners is the largest online resource promoting partnerships, funding, grants, and pilot programs for school safety planning, technology, training, drills, exercises, and evaluations. School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety. This year, we were awarded a major grant from the Panasonic 3D Innovation Center in support of our efforts to produce and distribute immersive simulation-based school safety training systems. We are working with Safe Havens International to distribute "The First 30 Seconds" and expand the program to include modules on crisis communications. These modules are designed to teach school safety teams what to say in the first 30 seconds, the first 5 minutes, and the first half-hour of a school emergency.

Transformative Emergency Network ( Pre-emptive flood crisis defense/management strategy )
In near future, extreme hurricanes will cause massive destruction along New York's waterfront, destabilizing socio-economic layers of the city. According to New York City's Office of Emergency Management, Category 2 Hurricane will inflict four billion dollars worth of damages along vulnerable waterfront area. While the city has commendable disaster warning and post disaster measure, it would be more cost effective in preventing/mitigating the physical destruction beforehand, instead massive reconstruction. Political negotiations and dialogues are critical to materializing the plan, since this will involve intricate city, state, and national level entities with conflicting interests. Unlike elaborate post disaster planning, the city lacks a pre-emptive plan to prevent destruction. We propose incremental flood mitigation and redevelopment strategies transforming existing infrastructure networks into heterotopic enclaves. Along New York's waterfront, there are great development pressure, seeking to replace the antiquated industrial area or low density residential area. For private interest, this next generation hybrid infrastructure strategy will provide massive site of opportunity that will provide more integrated approach to the existing site. Integration of flood protection/proof measure to the building module is a key element. We will pursue further research on prefabricated housing and manufacturing module.
