Preemptive biopreparedness: can we learn anything from history? (1/97)

The treat of bioterrorism is in the public eye again, and major public health agencies are urging preparedness efforts and special federal funding. In a sense, we have seen this all before. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grew substantially during the Cold War era in large part because Alexander Langmuir, Chief Epidemiologist of the CDC, used an earlier generation's anxieties to revitalize the CDC, create an Epidemic Intelligence Service, and promote epidemiologic "surveillance" as part of the nation's defense. Retrospective investigation suggests that, while Langmuir contributed to efforts promoted by the Department of Defense and the Federal Civil Defense Administration, the United States did not have real cause to fear Communist biological warfare aggression. Given clear historical parallels, it is appropriate to ask, What was gained and what was lost by Langmuir's central role in that first instance of American biopreparedness? Among the conclusions drawn is that biopreparedness efforts fed the Cold War climate, narrowed the scope of public health activities, and failed to achieve sustained benefits for public health programs across the country.  (+info)

The World Trade Center attack. Lessons for all aspects of health care. (2/97)

The attack on the World Trade Center had the potential to overwhelm New York's health services. Sadly, however, the predicted thousands of treatable patients failed to materialize. Horror and sadness has now been replaced by anger, fear, and the determination to be better prepared next time. This determination not only exists in politics but also in health care, and as with all attempts to enforce change there needs to be a period of collecting opinions and data. This article introduces nine reviews in Critical Care offering varied health care perspectives of the events of 11 September 2001 from people who were there and from experts in disaster management.  (+info)

The World Trade Center attack. The paramedic response: an insider's view. (3/97)

The World Trade Center attack and collapse is the first time an aircraft has been used as a weapon of mass effect. The scale and magnitude of this manmade disaster can only be compared with a natural catastrophe such as the Armenian earthquake of December 1988. The importance of an incident command system and the Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment, and the need for fixed Casualty Collection Points, is explained.  (+info)

The World Trade Center attack. Lessons for disaster management. (4/97)

As the largest, and one of the most eclectic, urban center in the United States, New York City felt the need to develop an Office of Emergency Management to coordinate communications and direct resources in the event of a mass disaster. Practice drills were then carried out to assess and improve disaster preparedness. The day of 11 September 2001 began with the unimaginable. As events unfolded, previous plans based on drills were found not to address the unique issues faced and new plans rapidly evolved out of necessity. Heroic actions were commonplace. Much can be learned from the events of 11 September 2001. Natural and unnatural disasters will happen again, so it is critical that these lessons be learned. Proper preparation will undoubtedly save lives and resources.  (+info)

Bioterrorism and the people: how to vaccinate a city against panic. (5/97)

Bioterrorism policy discussions and response planning efforts have tended to discount the capacity of the public to participate in the response to an act of bioterrorism, or they have assumed that local populations would impede an effective response. Fears of mass panic and social disorder underlie this bias. Although it is not known how the population will react to an unprecedented act of bioterrorism, experience with natural and technological disasters and disease outbreaks indicates a pattern of generally effective and adaptive collective action. Failure to involve the public as a key partner in the medical and public-health response could hamper effective management of an epidemic and increase the likelihood of social disruption. Ultimately, actions taken by nonprofessional individuals and groups could have the greatest influence on the outcome of a bioterrorism event. Five guidelines for integrating the public into bioterrorism response planning are proposed: (1) treat the public as a capable ally in the response to an epidemic, (2) enlist civic organizations in practical public health activities, (3) anticipate the need for home-based patient care and infection control, (4) invest in public outreach and communication strategies, and (5) ensure that planning reflects the values and priorities of affected populations.  (+info)

CDC's strategic plan for bioterrorism preparedness and response. (6/97)

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has played a critical lead role over the past two years in fostering activities associated with the medical and public health response to bioterrorism. Based on a charge from Secretary Donna Shalala in 1998, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is leading public health efforts to strengthen the nation's capacity to detect and respond to a bioterrorist event. As a result of our efforts, federal, state, and local communities are improving their public health capacities to respond to these types of emergencies. For many of us in public health, developing plans and capacities to respond to acts of bioterrorism is an extension of our long-standing roles and responsibilities. These are stated in the CDC Mission Statement: to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability, and the Bioterrorism Mission: to lead the public health effort in enhancing readiness to detect and respond to bioterrorism. CDC's infectious diseases control efforts are summarized below: --Initially formed to address malaria control in 1946; --Established the epidemic Intelligence Service in 1951; --Participated in global smallpox eradication and other immunization programs; --Estimated 800-1,000 + field investigations/year since late 1990s; --New diseases: Legionnaire's Disease, toxic shock syndrome, Lyme disease, HIV, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, West Nile, etc. -- Today: focus on emerging infections and bioterrorism. Over the past 50 years, CDC has seen a decline in the incidence of some infectious diseases and an increase in some, whereas others continue to present on a more unpredictable basis (i.e., hantavirus). Outbreak identification, investigation, and control have been an integral part of what we do for more than 50 years. We estimate that 800 to 1,000 field investigations have occurred every year since the late 1990s. Today, however, we have a new focus on emerging infectious diseases and bioterrorism.  (+info)

Public health and national security: the critical role of increased federal support. (7/97)

Protecting the public's health historically has been a state and local responsibility. However, the growing threat of bioterrorism has highlighted the importance of a strong public health infrastructure to the nation's homeland security and has focused increased attention on the preparedness of the public health system. As a result, federal public health funding has increased exponentially since the anthrax attacks of late 2001, and Congress has passed sweeping new federal legislation intended to strengthen the nation's public health system. This heightened level of federal interest and support should yield important public health benefits. Most recognize that after years of neglect the public health infrastructure cannot be rebuilt overnight. As we implement a comprehensive strategy to increase the capabilities and capacity of our nation's public health system, it is essential to address a series of important policy questions, including the appropriate level of ongoing public health investments from local, state, and federal sources.  (+info)

National Pharmaceutical Stockpile drill analysis using XML data collection on wireless Java phones. (8/97)

This study describes an informatics effort to track subjects through a National Pharmaceutical Stockpile (NPS) distribution drill. The drill took place in Seattle on 1/24/2002. Washington and the State Department of Health are among the first in the nation to stage a NPS drill testing the distribution of medications to mock patients, thereby testing the treatment capacity of the plan given a post-anthrax exposure scenario. The goal of the Public Health Informatics Group at the University of Washington (www.phig.washington.edu) was to use informatics approaches to monitor subject numbers and elapsed time. This study compares accuracy of time measurements using a mobile phone Java application to traditional paper recording in a live drill of the NPS. Pearson correlation = 1.0 in 2 of 3 stations. Differences in last station measurements can be explained by delay in recording of the exit time. We discuss development of the application itself and lessons learned.

Throughout the 1930s Gowers and his colleagues had also been involved in preparing for possible war, and invasion. From 1935 onwards he combined his frustrating work with the coal industry with civil defence planning, attached to the Department for the Co-ordination of Defence. John Anderson was given control of civil defence planning in 1938 and set up a network of civil defence regions.[15] Euan Wallace MP was appointed head of London Region, but ill-health forced him to retire in 1940.[16] Gowers, his deputy, became Senior Regional Commissioner for Civil Defence in London, running civil defence through the Blitz from a concrete bunker underneath the Natural History Museum, with Harold Scott and Edward "Teddy" Evans as his deputies.[17].

President Harry S. Truman signs the Federal Civil Defense Act of 1950. The Federal Civil Defense Administration (FCDA), established weeks earlier within the Executive Office of the President (see December 1, 1950), is transformed into an independent agency headed by a presidential appointee. The FCDA is placed in charge of providing emergency aid and assistance to local communities affected by disasters. The act also provides special emergency powers to the FCDA and the President in the event of a national crisis. According to President Truman, the act establishes a "basic framework for preparations to minimize the effects of an attack on our civilian population, and to deal with the immediate emergency conditions which such an attack would create." According to the New York Times, "The measure directs the Federal Government to provide leadership to states and communities in developing arrangements to protect civilian life and property in the countrys 150 critical target areas against possible ...

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) is the emergency rescue force of Singapore and they provide firefighting, rescue and ambulance services, and has been one of the three National Service postings since 1972. Those enlisted into the SCDF typically undergo 12 weeks of training at the Basic Rescue Training Centre (BRTC), where they are given basic rescue training (BRT), exposed to regimental discipline, and trained to maintain a level of fitness required of all NSFs in Singapore. Much like the SAFs SISPEC course, selected NSFs are also posted to the Civil Defence Academy (CDA) to undergo the Firefighter Course (FFC) or the Emergency Response Specialist Course (ERSC) within the first two weeks of their BRT stage, passing out as Firefighters for FFC trainees, and as Fire & Rescue Specialists for ERS trainees who would also simultaneously be conferred with the Sergeant rank (Firefighters mostly pass out as Lance Corporals prior to station posting). Firefighters would typically be posted out to ...
What is monitoring and evaluation?. Monitoring and evaluation provides us with a method for learning from experience, analysing capability, planning and allocating resources, and demonstrating results as part of accountability to stakeholders. Monitoring and evaluation are standard parts of any good policy or risk management process. They provide a feedback loop within these processes, allowing comparisons between actual and desired states. This enables ongoing analysis, and refinement of decisions and implementations processes, to improve outcomes.. Though often referred to together, monitoring and evaluation involve distinctly different aims and processes:. Monitoring is a continual process that aims to provide management and stakeholders of an ongoing intervention with early indications of compliance with responsibilities, and progress, or lack thereof, in the achievement of results.. Evaluation is about measuring effectiveness. It compares what is happening against what was intended ...

December 2005. TFAHs third annual study of preparedness for major health emergencies finds that both federal and state efforts must be accelerated in order to adequately protect the American people.. In the two-part report, the federal government received a grade of D+ for post-9/11 public health emergency preparedness, and over half of states garnered a score of 5 or less out of 10 possible points for key indicators of health emergency preparedness, such as capabilities to test for chemical and biological threats and hospital surge capacity to care for patients in a mass emergency.. The grade of the federal governments performance was based on a survey of 20 leading public health experts, who evaluated 12 different aspects of health emergency preparedness. For the assessment of states, Delaware, South Carolina and Virginia scored the highest, achieving eight of ten possible indicators. Alabama, Alaska, Iowa and New Hampshire scored the lowest, achieving only two indicators.. TFAHs "Lets Get ...

Washington, D.C., December 14, 2010 - In the eighth annual Ready or Not? Protecting the Public from Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism report, Arizona achieved eight out of 10 key indicators of public health emergency preparedness. Overall, states achieved the highest scores ever for health emergency preparedness with 14 states scoring nine or higher. Three states (Arkansas, North Dakota, and Washington State) scored 10 out of 10. Another 25 states and Washington, D.C. scored in the 7 to 8 range. No state scored lower than a five. The scores reflect nearly ten years of progress to improve how the nation prevents, identifies, and contains new disease outbreaks and bioterrorism threats and responds to the aftermath of natural disasters in the wake of the September 11, 2001 and anthrax tragedies. In addition, the real-world experience responding to the H1N1 flu pandemic - supported by emergency supplemental funding - also helped bring preparedness to the next level.. However the Ready or Not? ...

Emergency preparedness means being prepared for all kinds of emergencies, able to respond in time of crisis to save lives and property and to help a community-or even a nation-return to normal life after a disaster occurs. To encourage Scouts of all ages to be prepared for emergency situations, the BSA has approved an Emergency Preparedness Award program for members of all ages. When a member has fulfilled the requirements, a completed application is submitted to the council. Upon approval, the Emergency Preparedness Award, No. 19-304 is awarded. The pin may be worn on civilian clothing or on the uniform, centered on the left pocket flap. The award may be earned more than once; for instance, as a young person advances through the ranks and is capable of more complex preparedness activities, but only one pin may be worn. It is a challenge to be prepared for emergencies in our world of man-made and natural phenomena. The Emergency Preparedness BSA program is planned to inspire the desire and ...
The 2009 H1N1 pandemic tested the limits of the public health emergency preparedness systems in the US and abroad. The successes and failures from this pandemic remain relevant, particularly as pathogens like MER-CoV and Ebola continue to proliferate. The Public Health Response to 2009 H1N1: A Systems Perspective draws lessons from the public health systems response to the influenza pandemic, offering a collection of chapters that are highly relevant to all public health emergencies. Not simply a historical case study, this analysis employs a systems perspective that encompasses both government health agencies and community-based entities such as care providers, schools, and media. This title demonstrates rigorous qualitative research approaches that can be used to analyze public health system responses to both pathogens and a wide variety of other public health emergencies.

Since beginning in October, an outbreak of dysentery caused by the shigella bacteria has been a thorn in the side of Grayson County Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Jeff Lillis. His day-to-day work tasks still require attention - a rabid kitten in Denison was Mondays crisis du jour - but the persistence of the shigellosis outbreak has been a constant drain on his Departments resources. Lillis said health officials are cautiously optimistic they finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
This sequel to the hit miniseries by the original team of writer John Ridley (Oscar-winning screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave and creator of TVs American Crime) and artist Georges Jeanty (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight, Serenity: No Power in the Verse) moves the story forward in history, factoring in how real-life events might be affected by the presence of superheroes, and how those events change the heroes in turn. Its been a decade since the Civil Defense Corps was exposed as a fraud created by the U.S. Government for propaganda purposes. While most of the heroes who survived the catastrophe have retired or disappeared, the New American still carries on, trying to keep communities safe amid the social turmoil of the 1970s. But with the nation split in two over civil rights and the changing political landscape, this isnt easy. Some of the Americans former colleagues are on opposite sides of the law: Amber Waves joined a group of domestic terrorists, while Missy, a.k.a. Ole Miss, has
Good news is also reflected in the Epi Curve, released by health officials with the map, showing cases of dengue have "flatlined", and seemingly stopped spreading before March. The health department is still warning residents not to let down their guard. "Infectious mosquitoes may still be present," DOH says, "even if no cases remain infectious to mosquitoes. Fight the bite preventative measures remain crucial throughout the Big Island.". Civil defense concurs, saying that "although the number and frequency of new confirmed cases appears to be on the decline, the outbreak is not anticipated to be considered over anytime in the near future." Of the confirmed cases, 235 are Hawaii Island residents and 25 are visitors. 214 cases have been adults; 46 have been children under 18 years of age. Onset of illness has ranged between Sept. 11, 2015 and February 13, 2016. As of today, a total of 1425 reported potential cases have been excluded based on test results and/or not meeting case criteria.. ...

Flagellin activates the bodys own internal defense pathways," says Emory pathologist Andrew Gewirtz. "It also helps cells survive situations where theyd usually die.". The immune system evolved to recognize flagellin because so many types of bacteria have it. When cells in the lungs and intestines sense flagellins presence, an ensuing flurry of signals strengthens barriers and stimulates immune cells that can go after invaders.. Previously, Gewirtzs team demonstrated the versatility of flagellin. They found that it has the ability to protect mice against a lethal dose of radiation, a severe intestinal irritant, Salmonella, and rotavirus.. The radio-protective aspects of flagellin suggest that it could be used for civil defense, for example, in mitigating the effects of radiation exposure after a nuclear power plant meltdown or for cancer patients receiving radiation therapy. This property of flagellin has interested both biotech companies and the U.S. military in bacterias tiny ...

The arid hillside barrio, on property belonging to the Ambassadors of Jesus evangelical church, made headlines last year when nearly 3,000 Haitians ended up in this city bordering San Diego on a failed bid to get to the United States. About 200 were taken in by the church.. But the churchs plans to build a community for Haitians hit a roadblock when civil defense officials said there was a flood risk and barred further construction. A year later, just eight of the 100 homes envisioned are in place, with another 50 people or so living in similar conditions in nearby Scorpion Canyon.. "The neighborhood was not built, and the Haitians who were here went to rent elsewhere and became part of the work life," Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum Buenrostro said.. Indeed, the denizens of Little Haiti represent a small portion of the local migrants from the impoverished Caribbean nation, many of whom are putting down roots just across the border from what was once their destination.. Most of the Haitians ...
In the first six months of 1942, the U-boat force commanded by Admiral Doenitz deployed into the littoral of the eastern seaboard. The Germans had observed some restraint prior to Pearl Harbor in order to avoid incurring outright U.S. intervention. This ended with the Japanese attack. The German U-boats enjoyed tremendous success, as none of the U.S. Army Air Force, the U.S. Navy, or American civil defense authorities were well prepared for submarine defense. Coastal cities remained illuminated, making it easy for U-boat commanders to pick targets. Fearing a lack of escorts (as well as irritation on the part of the U.S. business community), the U.S. Navy (USN) declined to organize coastal shipping into convoys. The USN and U.S. Army Air Force, having fought bitterly for years, had not prepared the cooperative procedures necessary for fighting submarines ...

Even more to the point, the furor in the Israeli press and the statements of a number of Israeli politicians can only be seen as preparing the groundwork with the Israeli public. Civil defense preparations are in progress, outgoing home front defense minister Vilnai made a statement telling the Israeli public and the press that Israel was prepared for a 30 day war, and Ehud Barack went public at the same time reminding people that dealing with a nuclear armed Iran could be even more devastating. They appear to be preparing the Israeli people for an upcoming war ...

At the height of the nuclear war scare in the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, American and Soviet military planners engaged in a spate of civil defense planning. This hole-digging mentality, parodied most famously in Dr. Strangelove (and possibly the best, most incisive episode of The Twilight Zone), meant digging nuclear fallout shelters and creating structures capable of surviving the blast of a nuclear warhead. Civil defense planners found that it is possible to design a structure at a reasonable cost to survive a nuclear explosion on the order of one megaton. To withstand a larger explosion, the design rapidly became prohibitively expensive. NORADs famous Cheyenne Mountain complex, for example, can withstand a five to seven megaton blast within a 2 mile radius. And that thing is dug into a goddamn mountain. The moral of the story, of course, is that no matter how much defense the Americans or Soviets built, all the other side had to do was build a bigger bomb. Five to seven ...
The campaign bore fruit as the owner of a kiosk on Makarios Avenue in Ypsonas in Limassol on Friday recognised Sofocleous - who according to his son Fotis has recently suffered a stroke and has no sense of orientation - and notified his family. The kiosk owner - Georgios Neofytou - refused to take the money, the family said. They have asked people to show their appreciation to the man by visiting his shop.. Fotis, thanked through his Facebook profile everyone who helped to find his father - the police, civil defence, the media and volunteers, many of whom, he said, drove to Limassol from other districts to help in the search. He also thanked the thousands of people who shared his post on Facebook.. "With the help of God and our fellowmen, we can achieve many things that seem impossible. Thank you for the faith you showed," he said. ...

I wrote this some time ago and had no thought of posting it, but because the tsunami that hit the Samoas has been in the news and in my thoughts today, I offer this as a first-person tsunami account.. On Monday, May 23, 1960, in Hilo, Hawaii, I was nearly killed through my own foolishness, and then, not an hour later, I began rescuing people who were already dead. I was 16.. I heard about a great earthquake in Chile on the way back from doing archaeology at a refuge cave in the Kau Desert. When I got to town I went to Civil Defense headquarters, where I was an amateur radio operator. There was nothing much between us and Chile, but we thought that the South Pacific would give us clues about what Chile might be sending our way, since the shock, spreading in a great arc, would pass through there first. We got crackling reassuring reports: Tahiti, nothing; Christmas Island (now Kiribati), six inches. We knew that if anything was coming, it would arrive around one in the morning.. A friend and I ...
Back in the 70s, you couldnt swing a macrame plant hanger around a record store without knocking over numerous displays of albums featuring talkboxes. They were all over 70s music, kind of like how almost every 80s song has a sax solo and/or Michael McDonald on backing vocals. Not sure youve heard one being used? Trust us, you definitely have and just dont realize it.. Talkboxes are essentially an amplifier and a speaker contained in a box. The speaker is the acoustic diaphragm type used in bullhorns and civil defense sirens. You run your guitar, keyboard, or electrified hurdy gurdy into the box, and instead of driving a horn, the sound travels up a clear plastic tube and into your mouth. Your mouth, fine resonant cavity that it is, becomes the final effect pedal. Any way you can manipulate it will shape the sound coming from the instrument. Flap those lips, and suddenly youre talking like a robot. Who wouldnt want one of these?. So they arent complicated, but you wouldnt know it from the ...

Moura hospital in central Queensland will continue to have 24-hour emergency health services but five jobs will be lost.. Central Queensland Health and Hospital Board chairman Charles Ware has addressed a public meeting, after a review of the hospital, south-west of Rockhampton.. He told them services will be incorporated into a medical centre but there will continue to be two doctors and around-the-clock nursing shifts.. Mr Ware says the bed numbers will be cut from 10 to four, and the staff of 18 will be reduced to 13.. "Weve indicated to them previously that there will be staffing impacts," he said.. "We regret very much this change does have to come, but the community I think, and everybody, acknowledged previously the way we were conducting the hospital at Moura was unsustainable.. "We will work to place them in other local facilities in Biloela, Theodore and Baralaba.". He says services will be retained..

Michael Hingson. After making a harrowing trip down the stairs with the help of his guide dog, Roselle, and a colleague and running for his life when the towers collapsed, Hingson became a 9/11 survivor. He is now director of national public affairs of Guide Dogs for the Blind and an advocate of emergency preparedness for people with disabilities. We as disabled people will never be safe in the workplace until we are accepted in the workplace, Hingson said at an Oct. 25 public meeting of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on emergency preparedness and people with disabilities.. Days after Sept. 11, Hingson said, he heard the suggestion that people with disabilities should not be allowed to work on any building above the first floor. Hingsons answer: he has no problem with that idea as long as no workplaces have more than one floor.. The meeting highlighted a number of issues that employers must deal with in order to meet their responsibilities under the Americans with ...

The POD would be used for both natural and man-made outbreaks. Locations will be made public after they have received the equipment and medications and are ready to start serving the public.. EP&R also works with "shelter operations" should they be opened by the City.

After more than 40 congressional hearings this year, the good news is that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle agree that the Zika threat justifies new funding. The bad news is, three months after the White Houses initial request, there remains little agreement about how much funding to provide, for what, when to provide it, and through what mechanism. And while Congress debates the details, public health agencies cant afford to wait. The administration has been forced to redirect nearly $600 million previously allocated to fight the ongoing Ebola threat toward the Zika efforts--under the assumption this funding will eventually be made whole by Congress in the Zika package--as well as $44 million from emergency preparedness grants intended for use by the states. As the Washington Post recently reported, the reallocation of these Public Health and Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) funds is particularly concerning because that money is critical for states to address ongoing and emerging public ...

The West Fertilizer Co. plant, which blew up last week, taking 15 lives and permanently scarring a tiny town, stockpiled large quantities of potentially explosive ammonium nitrate, among other chemicals, but never reported them to the Department of Homeland Security as required by an anti-terrorist program. Nationwide, DHS estimates that about 6,000 firms store potentially hazardous chemicals - including ammonium nitrate and many other substances listed in the federal homeland security law - and are required to report to the department under the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards program. Eighteen years after Timothy McVeigh and his accomplices packed a truck with 2 tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer mixed with racing fuel and detonated it in front of the federal building in Oklahoma City, a buyer can still walk into a farm supplier and purchase large amounts of that same compound, as long as he does nothing to arouse suspicion.

LONDON - Every year, tornadoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters injure and kill thousands of people and damage billions of dollars worth of property. Often, it is almost impossible to predict or prevent the occurrence of these disasters.

Mandatory communicable disease reporting affords public health officials with the opportunity to investigate communicable diseases and take action to protect the health of the community. Identification and reporting of communicable disease is a collaborative effort among physicians and other health care providers, veterinarians, hospitals and other health facilities, laboratories, and the local public health system. Timely reporting of the specific illness or condition, as well as any unusual manifestations of disease, will allow public health officials to determine if further action is necessary to protect public health, such as isolation or quarantine of an individual or group of individuals. Thus, communicable disease reporting and investigation is an integral part of public health emergency law.. Before action is taken, it is critical that officials have a thorough understanding of the disease in question, including issues such as mode of transmission (i.e., airborne or through contact with ...

  • Thus, Iran is necessitated to design a new model for cyber defense," he said, adding that such a civil defense model should not be a conventional and symmetric one, given the aforementioned facts. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The Department of Defense (DOD) has developed overarching guidance about how it is to support civil authorities as part of its Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) mission, but DOD's guidance does not clearly define its roles and responsibilities for cyber incidents. (gao.gov)
  • DOD Directive 3025.18 identifies the specific responsibilities of DOD officials who oversee DOD components responsible for various elements of DSCA, such as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs for health or medical-related support, but does not specify the responsibilities of DOD components (such as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security) in supporting civil authorities for cyber incidents. (gao.gov)
  • Various guidance documents are inconsistent on which combatant command would be designated the supported command and have primary responsibility for supporting civil authorities during a cyber incident. (gao.gov)
  • However, other guidance directs and DOD officials stated that a different command, U.S. Cyber Command, would be responsible for supporting civil authorities in a cyber incident. (gao.gov)
  • Key DSCA guidance documents do not identify the role of the dual-status commander-that is, the commander who has authority over federal military and National Guard forces-in supporting civil authorities during a cyber incident. (gao.gov)
  • DOD officials acknowledged the limitations of current guidance to direct the department's efforts in supporting civil authorities in a cyber incident and discussed with GAO the need for clarified guidance on roles and responsibilities. (gao.gov)
  • DOD officials stated that the department had not yet determined the approach it would take to support a civil authority in a cyber incident and, as of January 2016, DOD had not begun efforts to issue or update guidance and did not have an estimate on when the guidance will be finalized.
