*  Katrina: The Ultimate Testing Ground for Disaster Recovery
... So a month before Hurricane Katrina roared through the Gulf Coast, demolishing New Orleans and causing unprecedented levels of damage to portions of Mississippi and Alabama, a special task force at Alfa chose to invest in a mobile recovery unit from Agility Recovery Solutions, of Charlotte, N.C. Once Alfa declared a company emergency during the hurricane, Agility sent a 24-by-68-foot, double-size mobile unit to a location in Mobile, Ala. In Houston to escape Katrina's destruction, Mike Roppolo, director of health services for the Newman School, in New Orleans, said the task of restoring the popular city is daunting. "It's going to take more than several months to rebuild that city and get it back to some form of what we knew to be New Orleans," Roppolo said. For many people charged with running IT systems, Katrina proved the ultimate testing ground for disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Tim Babco, senior director of IT for SCP Pool Corp., in Covington, La., said his company designed ...

*  The Indian Ocean Tsunami and its Environmental Impacts
... Hari Srinivas. Case Study Series E-023. June 2015. At 0058 GMT on 26 December 2004, a massive earthquake of magnitude 9.0 struck the coastal area off northern Sumatra in Indonesia. A number of after shocks also occurred, some of magnitude 7.1. These earthquakes triggered tsunamis that affected Indonesia and neighbouring countries in Asia including India, Malaysia, Maldives, Sri Lanka, and Thailand and the east coasts of Africa including Somalia and Yemen, causing serious damage to the coastal areas and small islands. While the final death toll will never be known, an estimated 250,000 persons have perished in the tsunami, majority of them women and children. Millions more have been displaced or rendered homeless. The damage from the tsunami was particularly severe as an increasingly percentage of the population, and many key cities and towns, lie within 50 km of the ocean edge. The international response mounted to provide rescue and relief to the affected communities was unprecedented in its volume and ...

*  Law authorizes moblizing reservists to respond to natural disasters
... 5/20/2012 - WASHINGTON AFNS -- New authority in this year's Defense Department authorization act allows reservists in Air Force Reserve Command and other reserve components to be called to duty in response to natural disasters or emergencies in the homeland. The law also permits mobilizations for extended periods to support theater security missions around the world. State governors can call up the National Guard if a natural disaster is too large for civil authorities to handle. If more forces are needed -- as when Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005 -- active-duty service members became the federal default force. Mobilizing needed reservists will help sustain their support for longer periods and make operations more efficient. The inability to help communities has frustrated the chiefs of the reserve components, who see no sense in bypassing local reservists simply because they operate under federal Title 10 authority and not state Title 32 authority. Moreover, if ...

(1/2) Development of the Australian Society of Forensic Odontology disaster victim identification forensic odontology guide.

The need for documented procedures and protocols are important in every specialist group to ensure a consistent service to the community. They provide guidance to members of the specialist group about responsibilities and appropriate practices, and confidence to the community that the services are of the highest possible standard. In a Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) incident, by enabling the process to be audited, they also serve to ensure that identifications are reliable. Following the Bali Bombings of 2002 and the 2004 Asian Tsunami the Australian Society of Forensic Odontology recognised the need for a practice guide to assist the management of their members in DVI incidents. 31 members of the Australian Society of Forensic Odontology participated in the development of a guideline document for Disaster Victim Identification using a Delphi based model. The advantage of using the iterative Delphi process is that it encouraged participants to think about the processes used in the forensic odontology aspects of a DVI incident and their expectations of a guiding document. The document developed as a result of this project is comprehensive in coverage and places the Australian Society of Forensic Odontology at the vanguard of professionalism in the forensic odontology and DVI community.  (+info)

(2/2) A brief history of forensic odontology and disaster victim identification practices in Australia.

Today we consider forensic odontology to be a specialised and reliable method of identification of the deceased, particularly in multiple fatality incidents. While this reputation has been gained from the application of forensic odontology in both single identification and disaster situations over a number of years, the professional nature of the discipline and its practices have evolved only recently. This paper summarises some of early uses of forensic odontology internationally and in Australia and discusses the development of both forensic odontology and Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) practices in each of the states and territories of Australia. The earliest accounts of the use of forensic odontology in Australia date to the 1920's and 30's, and were characterised by inexperienced practitioners and little procedural formality. An organised and semi-formal service commenced in most states during the 1960's although its use by police forces was spasmodic. Today the service provided by qualified and experienced forensic odontologists is highly professional and regularly utilised by police and coronial services. The development of DVI Practices in Australia began following the crash of a Vickers Viscount aircraft into Botany Bay in 1961 and, as with practices internationally, have evolved into an equally professional and reliable specialist discipline of policing in which forensic odontology plays a significant part.  (+info)
