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). The goal was to gather information about the culturally specific needs and communications practices of these communities to inform policies, practices, and communications related to public health emergencies. Wilder Research interviewed 25 professionals and community leaders who work with immigrants in the Twin Cities to learn about the emergency preparedness needs of ...
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 Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services/Department for Public Health (CHFS/DPH) developed a set of pictogram signage for local health departments to use to direct people through Points of Dispensing (PODs) and mass care clinics that would serve as dispensing sites for SNS assets such as vaccines or prophylaxis. "Pictogram signs" use pictures to communicate information to people who may be challenged in understanding written or spoken English such as deaf and hard of hearing and non-English speaking people. These signs can be used to assist in meeting communications requirements of the CDCs state and local Technical Assessment Reviews (TARs). Many of the pictogram signs can also be used in an "all-hazards" manner. They can also be used at disaster assistance centers or in shelters.. The pictogram signage illustrates key POD functions, such as registration and, as a complete package, creates a step-by-step approach to public flow through a POD. These signs were designed to complement ...

The unexpected outbreak of an influenza pandemic in the spring of 2009 highlighted the need for states to prepare for all hazards, not just natural disasters and terrorist attacks. The pervasive threat of infectious disease and the more insidious threat of bioterrorism require that public health, emergency management and homeland security professionals work collaboratively to develop preparedness plans and strategies.. The NGA Center, in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, has worked to raise awareness among governors of the threat of bioterrorism; to identify state priorities for enhancing public health preparedness; and to encourage regional approaches through which states can work collaboratively to share resources and expertise before, during and after a public health emergency.. The NGA Center assists governors and their staffs by:. ...
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.. ...

Its heart-wrenching to watch all that people go through as natural disasters play out on our television screens. Tucked away, along with sympathy for those in the midst of a hurricane, earthquake, flood or other catastrophic events, is the very understandable thought, "Im so glad thats not happening to me!". The truth is, however, that we are all susceptible to major life-changing events, and they can happen with very little notice. Those with a chronic medical condition, like diabetes, are especially vulnerable and should take seriously the advice to be prepared. Even if you dont live on the coast or near a river that is prone to flooding, everyone is susceptible to a life-threatening event - tornado, blizzard, wildfire, earthquake, chemical explosion and the list goes on. For those with diabetes, it is extremely important to have a diabetic-specific disaster preparedness kit ready to go in an instant, which may be all the time you have. Make sure that it is insulated and waterproof. Some ...

Plague, the disease caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis (Y. pestis), has had a profound impact on human history. In AD 541, the first great plague pandemic began in Egypt and swept across the world in the next four years. Population losses attributable to plague during those years were between 50 and 60 percent.. In 1346, the second plague pandemic, also known as the Black Death or the Great Pestilence, erupted, and within five years had ravaged the Middle East and killed more than 13 million in China and 20-30 million in Europe (one third of the European population).. Advances in living conditions, public health and antibiotic therapy make such natural pandemics improbable, but plague outbreaks following an attack with a biological weapon do pose a serious threat.. Plague is one of very few diseases that can create widespread panic following the discovery of even a small number of cases. This was apparent in Surat, India, in 1994, when an estimated 500,000 persons fled the city in fear of a ...

The CDC produced a uniform set of scores on a 100-point scale from its 2008 national evaluation of state preparedness to distribute materiel from the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). This study used these SNS scores to represent each states relative preparedness to distribute influenza vaccine in a timely manner and assumed that "optimal" vaccine distribution would reach at least 35% of the states population within 4 weeks. The scores were used to determine the timing of vaccine distribution for each state: each 10-point decrement of score below 90 added an additional delay increment to the distribution time ...

Abstract: A pandemic influenza occurs when a new strain of influenza virus surfaces in the human population and spreads efficiently from person to person. The use of pharmaceutical interventions (prescription antiviral drugs and vaccine) plays an important role in a multi-faceted public health response to an infectious disease outbreak. We explore consequences of decisions on the amount of antiviral drug regimens to stockpile and the strategies for prophylaxis use of antivirals during an influenza pandemic. We also evaluate health benefits of different prophylactic antiviral use strategies in terms of disease attack rate and hospital surge arrivals considering uncertainties surrounding influenza spread and containment ...
Emergency mass critical care (EMCC) is defined as the immediate need for critical care resources, including staff, medical equipment, supplies, medications, and ICU space, to provide timely, effective care to a large population surge of critically ill victims during a disaster.25 A mass casualty critical care event affecting the NICU may put many vulnerable patients at risk for limited life-sustaining interventions because of deficiencies in facilities, supplies, or staffing. If disaster events are prolonged, they can also affect the abilities of responders to provide sustained care for those affected. For optimal care of vulnerable NICU patients, specific advance plans for their acute care, stabilization, triage, transfer, and evacuation must be put in place. In 2010, a select pediatric task force developed a framework of pediatric EMCC capable of tripling critical care capabilities for a period of up to 10 days.26 The unique challenges presented by pregnant women, newborn infants, and NICU ...

Introduction. In the wake of recent world events, institutions have learned that preparation is required to be able to respond in the case of a disaster - whether natural or manmade. This process is known as "emergency preparedness" or "disaster planning". While the word "disaster" may imply a major event, such as floods, fires, or earthquakes, most collection disasters are much smaller in scale such as flooding from a burst pipe.. This broad topic covers a wide range of planning activities that are easy to put off, leading to ruinous results. In the event that a disaster, large or small, cannot be prevented, individuals and institutions must be prepared to respond appropriately to assure safety of personnel and collections, and then salvage whatever can be saved. In 2005, Heritage Preservation published A Public Trust at Risk: The Heritage Health Index Report on the State of Americas Collections, indicating that nearly 80% of Museums in America do not have an emergency management or disaster ...

Revisit Disaster Plans. National Preparedness Month is an ideal time to take a critical look at your facilitys disaster plan. Learn about best practices for disaster management and make sure that your plan matches up to the latest standards. Perhaps your building has changed since the creation of the last plan, with a new addition or additional parking structure, or an influx of new tenants? Walk through every part of the plan to be sure it still makes logical sense for current conditions. You should also talk to building occupants to ensure they have copies of the plan and to address questions and concerns. Work with tenants to nominate floor wardens and other volunteers who can assist others.. The disaster plan should not only cover ways to safely evacuate or handle dangerous situations, but should also provide a road-map for resuming business after the crisis is over. Building occupants will want to return to work and/or their residences as soon as possible following a disaster. So you may ...

The replies to the questionnaire were included into a report which portrays the situation of people with disabilities in disaster preparedness and response, focusing on different practices, return of experiences, good examples and mentioning the legal issues and drawing attention to what can be done in the case of a disaster. The Report, together with the resulting Guidelines and Recommendations on Including People with Disabilities in Disaster Preparedness and Response were discussed and adopted by the Committee of Permanent Correspondents of the EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement on 24 October.. ...
An example of her seed-to-garden performance was a federal and state bioterrorism grant in 2003. Her submission garnered the fledgling disaster response effort a first-place ranking among all other grant proposals in the country. Through that $6 million from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, she directed a five-year disaster preparedness project that trained more than 30,000 health professionals, first responders, health profession students, and volunteers in disaster response awareness and performance. The project resulted in development of the first dental forensic team in South Carolina enabling identification of disaster victims from dental records, she explained ...
ecent studies, including an Institute of Medicine report, have pressed for greater integration of public health and primary care.5 Developing community-level preparedness coalitions is one potential avenue toward that goal. However, most attention has focused on population-level management of obesity or chronic illness rather than disaster preparedness and response. At the same time, public health preparedness experts have sought to develop methods to evaluate community coalitions. This studys findings suggest that preparedness work could be integrated with broader care delivery, with possible implications for how to evaluate coalitions.. Across sites, respondents consistently reported that hospitals and hospital-owned physician practices typically are much more involved in emergency-preparedness coalitions than other stakeholders, reflecting both the federal financial support hospitals receive for preparedness activities and their size, structure and resources. Other stakeholders, particularly ...

Get it Here: DriveThruRPG.com. Tabletop companies really like to release items as close to Christmas as possible. Goodman Games is no exception. This 2013 Holiday Module, entitled The Old Gods Return is full of homages and nods to Christmas. The main antagonist has a reindeers head. The tontuu resemble Santas elves. There are some seriously screwed up evergreen trees and the joulbok is reminiscent of the Krampus in design if not personality. This is a cute little idea for an adventure, and its well done enough that you dont have to play it around the holidays to get the full effect.. The title of the piece is a bit misleading. The Old Gods do not in fact "return." There is only one god, a fraction of its former self and near the end of its existence due to a lack of worship in this piece. That said, it IS the principal antagonist of the adventure, and even weakened, a god is a pretty powerful enemy for Level 1 characters to be taking on. Even with a party of six characters, expect some, if ...

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA-Suppose your company experiences a major hurricane, tornado or fire: Property is destroyed and your business is stalled, meaning customers are left waiting. But there are buildings to be rebuilt and equipment to be replaced, and the claims process hasnt even started. This is when the risk managers skills at placing the companys insurance coverage and negotiating for the best payout can not only demonstrate their true value, but can put the company back on course, according to experts here at RIMS Canadas annual conference.. "When theres a serious property loss, this is the time for the risk manager to shine, because up until then its about premium, premium, premium," Tom Parsons, manager of risk management at Fairmont Raffles Hotels International in Toronto said during a RIMS Canada Conference session. "Up until a serious loss occurs, I dont think you feel the impact that you can give back to the company. Because what we do is buy insurance, so it has to work. It ...

Epidemiology is the scientific study of factors affecting the health and illness of individuals and populations, and serves as the foundation and logic of interventions made in the interest of public health and preventive medicine. It is considered a cornerstone methodology of public health research, and is highly regarded in evidence-base medicine for identifying risk factors for disease and determining optimal treatment approaches to clinical practice.. The acting epidemiologist works on issues ranging from the practical, such as outbreak investigation, environmental exposure, and health promotion, to the theoretical, including the development of statistical, mathematical, philosophical, and biological theory. To this end, epidemiologists employ a range of study designs from the observational to experimental, with the purpose of revealing unbiased relationships between exposures such as nutrition, biological agents, stress, or chemicals to outcomes such as disease, wellness and health ...
Condition Red" - Most people have no disaster plan at all. They believe that in the event of a disaster, emergency services will rush to their front door to aid them.
