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 Horror and sadness has now been replaced by anger, fear, and the determination to be better prepared next time.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]. The prime minister, Winston Churchill, told Gowers, If communication with the Government becomes very difficult or impossible, it may be necessary for you to act on behalf of the Government … without consultation with ministers.[18] Churchill promised that ...

And so civil defense was born. Numerous federal and state civil defense programs sprang up, intended to pacify the population and legitimize deterrence policy, as well as to justify the billions spent on secret underground bomb shelters reserved for the government elite. A generation of Americans was indoctrinated to the catchy tune of duck and cover. Yet the civil defense program was a complete failure.

The former ministry was created in 1996 upon the merging the ministry of Ukraine in protection of population from the consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe and the headquarters of the state civil defense which until then were two different establishments. Later in 2003 to the agency was included the Fire Department that was under jurisdiction of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (Militsiya). Until 1991 the ministry of Ukraine in protection of population from the consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe was a state committee of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukrainian SSR, while the state civil defense was part of the bigger All-Union civil defense network in the Soviet Union. Until 2005 the agency was a military reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but after the 2003 reform and merger with the Fire Department, all militarized formation were dissolved and in 2005 the agency became officially non-military and focused on rescue services.

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 ...

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 ...

Alabama, Alaska, Iowa and New Hampshire scored the lowest, achieving only two indicators.. TFAHs Lets Get ...
The inappropriate use of emergency room (ER) service by patients with non-urgent health problems is a worldwide problem. Inappropriate ER use makes it difficult to guarantee access for real emergency cases, decreases readiness for care, produces negative spillover effects on the quality of emergency services, and raises overall costs. We conducted a cross-sectional study in a medium-sized city in southern Brazil. The urgency of the presenting complaint was defined according to the Hospital Urgencies Appropriateness Protocol (HUAP). Multivariable Poisson regression was carried out to examine factors associated with inappropriate ER use. The study interviewed 1,647 patients over a consecutive 13-day sampling period. The prevalence of inappropriate ER use was 24.2% (95% CI 22.1-26.3). Inappropriate ER use was inversely associated with age (P = 0.001), longer stay in the waiting room, longer duration of symptoms and morning shift. However, the determinants of inappropriate ER use differed according age

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.
Different forms of nuclear weapons delivery (see above) allow for different types of nuclear strategies. The goals of any strategy are generally to make it difficult for an enemy to launch a pre-emptive strike against the weapon system and difficult to defend against the delivery of the weapon during a potential conflict. This can mean keeping weapon locations hidden, such as deploying them on submarines or land mobile transporter erector launchers whose locations are difficult to track, or it can mean protecting weapons by burying them in hardened missile silo bunkers. Other components of nuclear strategies included using missile defenses to destroy the missiles before they land, or implementing civil defense measures using early-warning systems to evacuate citizens to safe areas before an attack.

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
When the unfortunate news about the invasion and subsequent killing of some villagers in Platueu State broke out during the President Goodluck Jonathan administration, many looked the way of security agencies especially the police, Department of State Security (DSS) and the Civil Defence Corps for solutions.
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.

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 ...

8: The leader of the White Helmets, Raed Saleh, was deported from Dulles Airport in the US, April 2016. No real explanation was ever given for this decision. Mark Toner of the US State Department fielded questions from media but did (i) Admit to funding the group with $ 23m and (ii) suggest that Raed Saleh might have extremist connections. Raed Saleh has recently been allowed back into the US in September 2016 and spoke at the UN New York with the Dutch Mission. However, no explanation has been given for this reversal of the previous decision to deport Saleh.. 9: The White Helmets are also referred to as the Syria Civil Defence. However, there is an existing Syria Civil Defence. The REAL Syria Civil Defence was established in Syria in 1953.

Changes proposed for the states homeland security efforts are touted as streamlining the process, but might sound a bit like someone trying to put their own brand on something that already exists. Shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks, Governor Holden appointed a state Homeland Security Director. Under the latest executive order from Governor Blunt, Missouris homeland security efforts now fall under the Department of Public Safety and a Homeland Security Advisory Council has been charged with submitting a new plan to the governor by January first. When asked if the state did not already have a homeland security plan, Public Safety Director Mark James responded that it did, but not one written by this administration.James couldnt point to any specific gaps in homeland security that the previous administration had left. But he says you cannot measure success just based on what has not been measured. James is also not sure how much the state might have to spend to get homeland security where ...

Hobijn and Sager (2007) estimate that spending on homeland security in the United States increased by $44 billion from 2001 to 2005. They further estimate that 34 percent of this increase was dedicated to protection of critical infrastructure and key assets and 11 percent to emergency preparedness and response. Although no one disputes the Department of Homeland Security and the security actions it promulgates, questions have been raised about the economic efficiency of specific protection activities. Shapiro (2008) argues that there is a need to know whether the benefits of homeland security actions exceed costs, but the costs of homeland security measures have been underestimated and the benefits left uncalculated (see also Farrow and Shapiro, 2009 ). Farrow (2007) has proposed several approaches to investigating the cost-effectiveness of specific homeland security policies. Smith et al. (2009) go one step further to estimate United States households willingness to pay (WTP) to prevent a ...
Homeland security and public education do not seemingly share the same bed. Yet according to lobbying reports acquired from opensecrets.org, SUNY has spent an undisclosed amount of money lobbying for various Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security appropriations.. SUNY claims all efforts are related to education, research, and training programs.. The lobbying reports contain addendums for vague lobbying issue areas, like Energy and Water and Agriculture. Along with these benignities are the terms Defense and Homeland Security, appearing on five lobbying reports, including one from 2010 that totals $480,000 in lobbying expenses.. SUNY could be pushing specific projects and applications related to homeland security and defense, said Les Paldy, a distinguished service professor in the Department of Technology and Society here at Stony Brook University..

Recent public health emergencies have highlighted the continuing need for public health officials to further improve communications with immigrant and refugee communities about the importance of being aware and prepared for infectious disease outbreaks, dangerous weather, public shootings, and other community emergencies. In 2016, Wilder Research was contracted by Hennepin County Public Health Emergency Preparedness to conduct a study about emergency preparedness planning with nine immigrant and refugee communities in the county (Mexican, Hmong, South Asian Indian, Somali, Ethiopian, Oromo, Guinean, Liberian, and Sierra Leonean).

Public health officials recently tested their plans to distribute over 120,000 doses of life-saving medication within 48 hours in case of a communicable disease outbreak in Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet, and Otsego counties. The Homeland Security Administration requires local health departments to develop plans for distributing medications from the Strategic National Stockpile of pharmaceuticals and in coordination with local emergency operations centers.. When most people think of disasters, airplane crashes, explosions, or floods may come to mind. But a communicable disease outbreak can be a disaster too, said Carol Paxton, Director of Public Health Emergency Preparedness at the Health Department of Northwest Michigan. Diseases such as anthrax, plague, or tularemia can devastate communities without plans for quickly distributing life-saving medications to large numbers of residents and visitors. The agencies that participated in the exercise were the Health Department, the Little Traverse Bay ...
The Montgomery County, MD, Advanced Practice Center for Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response and I would like to remind everyone that POD planning tools like the Clinic Planning Model Generator (CPMG) can be used to plan staffing and predict queueing and throughput H1N1 vaccination in PODs and in schools.. Some of these will be very simple - for instance, a school POD (clinic) may have just a vaccination station staffed by nurses. The inputs to the CPMG are the number of students at a school and the number of hours for the vaccination activity. The model will determine how many staff are needed. If the number needed exceeds the number available at the school, then increase the number of hours that the POD will operate.. If you have any questions, let me know at [email protected] (August 4, 2009) UPDATE: See also the CDCs list of Tools and Models to Estimate Staffing.. ...

The Homeland Security Bill has been enacted in the name of preserving national security. But according to the consumer watchdog group Public Citizen, the legislation is a treasure trove of corporate favors unrelated to national security. Embedded in the legislation are corporate giveaways that benefit pharmaceutical companies, corporate tax evaders, and other GOP supporters at the expense of public health and safety. It also provides industry with secret access to government and legal loopholes to hide evidence of corporate misdeeds.. Well also talk about Thimerosal. Thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative used by some companies in vaccines. Pharmaceutical companies like Eli Lilly have been sued by parents who believe their children were harmed by the drug.. One of the provisions buried in the Bill will protect companies like Eli Lilly from lawsuits. No legislator will admit to adding the provision to the bill. Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona characterized the provision as among ...

So, two things that make boating so much fun is that we get to relax and we get to mess around. Safely, of course. But besides safety, the two things we never, and I mean never mess around with are the U.S. Coast Guard and Homeland Security restrictions. Out here on the water, the U.S. Coast Guard and other law enforcement officers protect all of us. Its a huge job. And with probable cause, they have the right to stop, board and examine any vessels to check for compliance with laws. Its pretty serious business. So if the U.S. Coast Guard or other law enforcement vessels signals you, you are required to maneuver so that they can board.. Homeland Security is vital to all of us, and they need our help in keeping our waterways safe and secure. Heres how you can help and stay out of serious trouble.

SINGAPORE: Co-ordination among 18 agencies in Singapore was put to the test on Friday at the finale of an ongoing counter-terrorism exercise - Northstar VIII. The exercise at Jurong Island involved some 1,200 people from the public and private sectors. The drill also put Singapores maritime security plans through its paces during a mock terrorist attack. More than 700 personnel from the army, police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), among others, were involved in the exercise, which started on November 10. Agencies had to monitor and respond to a mock terror attack at sea via the National Maritime Sense-making Centre. The scenario involved security forces storming a tanker hijacked by terrorists plotting to use it as a floating bomb. It may just be a drill, but the threats are no less real. Deputy Prime Minister and Home Affairs Minister Teo Chee Hean, who w... Full article: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews... ...

Evidence of the White Helmet affiliation to the various terrorist factions is extensively documented. There are evidenced reports on one of the more prominent White Helmet leaders, Mustafa al Haj Yussef, in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib where many of the East Aleppo terrorists and their civil defence have fled.[11] These reports detail his declarations of allegiance to various extremist factions such as Ahrar Al Sham, responsible for many of the ethnic cleansing pogroms across Syria. Yussef has openly called for the shelling of civilians in Damascus during the 2014 elections. He has advocated robbery, looting and sectarian punishments and murder under certain circumstances.

Post-World-War-Two American society is popularly and frequently defined by the symptom of paranoia. The paranoia which pervades the McCarthyist witch hunts, the duck and cover policy of civil defense, and postwar representations of the alien invader characterize late twentieth century perceptions of 1950s America. Science fiction is the genre most commonly invoked now to represent 1950s paranoia and within 1950s culture it stood as a genre conducive to expressions of fear and paranoia. Los Alamos and the development of the atomic bomb gave rise to numerous cultural texts which attempted to represent what was frequently perceived as the unrepresentable-atomic power. The prehistoric monsters, giant ants, pod people, and other horrors which people 1950s science fiction films attest to what had already been a strong interpenetration between physics and science fiction. The fact that science fiction and paranoiac discourse have affinities becomes manifest in 1950s popular science fiction. Yet the ...
