This webinar, led by LANDFIRE Business Lead Henry Bastian, will cover more than a decade old program (LANDFIRE) at producing and updating land cover data products across all 50 United States and insular areas. Although many have thought of LANDFIRE as only a wildland fire data set, the rich array of data layers and databases (vegetation type, cover, and height; successional state and transition models and database; to national plot and polygon databases) have fundamentally improved information integration and decision support for managers, scientists, and leadership across fire, habitat, and natural resources management. This presentation will explore the past comprehensive suite of data that leads to the future in advancing data integration, partnerships in authoritative data sources, and improving mapping change with engagement and user feedback as a key tenant. Consistent wall to wall data provides a strong foundation for the future national remap project with the goal of improved data quality. Federal, State, Tribal, Researcher, Academics, and local managers are provided with a consistent data framework that can be used across multiple levels and efforts. Henry Bastian is a natural resources manager in the DOI Office of Wildland Fire Boise, ID. for enterprise systems and data (NFPORS, IFTDSS, LANDFIRE). Prior to this he worked in Washington, DC on the implementation of LANDFIRE; wildland fire performance measures and reporting through the DOI Strategic Plan; budget; chair of the Woody Biomass Utilization Group, & Emergency Management coordinator - Emergency Support Functions (ESF) and National Response Framework (NRF).

The ESF-8 partners that deal with Fatality Management are often misunderstood. The agencies and organizations have to be nimble as their scope varies with the size and type of incident. A community's Medical Examiner or Coroner has complete jurisdiction over the deceased and are responsible for many vital tasks such as: Recovery efforts, Setting up temporary morgues, Identifying victims, and collecting postmortem data. These Partners are also tasked with notifying families and assisting those families with final arrangements. The Kansas Funeral Directors Association Disaster Team is available in our region when the medical examiner's office resources are taxed. This team is made up of Funeral Directors from all over the State that volunteer to assist in the vital mission of managing fatalities. When local, regional, & state resources are stretched thin, the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT) is a federal resource that can be called in.

VOADs are Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster. These ESF-8 partners are tasked with supporting their communities in a multitude of ways. VOADs as a group are made up of non-profit organizations, community groups, and government groups that utilize their resources to assist during all phases of a disaster. Whether it is providing food or shelter or supplies, these organizations are vital to assisting a community or region during a disaster. VOADs rely on their numbers of trained volunteers to fulfill their mission. In our region, the United Way of the Plains has taken the lead in managing unaffiliated volunteers and setting up the Volunteer Reception Center during a disaster. The Red Cross, The Salvation Army, and the United Way are among the organizations that can provide resources in our region. VOADs are highly active in the support of communities after the initial emergency responders have left. Disaster relief is supported by multiple organizations in our region. The true recovery of a community is dependent on these ESF-8 partners. For more information visit http://ksesf8.org/ or e-mail email@example.com.

What is EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND? What does EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND mean? EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND meaning - EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND definition - EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) is an emergency reserve fund of the United States Treasury Department, normally used for foreign exchange intervention. This arrangement (as opposed to having the central bank intervene directly) allows the US government to influence currency exchange rates without affecting domestic money supply. As of October 2009, the fund held assets worth $105 billion, including $58.1 billion in special drawing rights (SDR) from the International Monetary Fund. The U.S. Exchange Stabilization Fund was established at the Treasury Department by a provision in the Gold Reserve Act of January 31, 1934. 31 U.S.C. § 5117. It was intended as a response to Britain's Exchange Equalisation Account. The fund began operations in April 1934, financed by $2 billion of the $2.8 billion paper profit the government realized from raising the price of gold to $35 an ounce from $20.67. The act authorized the ESF to use its capital to deal in gold and foreign exchange to stabilize the exchange value of the dollar. The ESF as originally designed was part of the executive branch not subject to legislative oversight. The Gold Reserve Act authorized the ESF to use such assets as were not needed for exchange market stabilization to deal in government securities. The Fund had no statutory authority, however, to engage in other activities that it began to undertake. The principal such extraneous activity it devoted itself to was lending dollars to politically favored governments. In 1938–40, the director of the Division of Monetary Research, Harry Dexter White, worked on a proposal for loans to Latin America and participated in plans for an Inter-American Bank, which did not materialize. The plan for an Inter-American Bank, however, inspired White's first draft of the subsequent plans for the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank that White prepared in 1941 at Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Henry Morgenthau's direction. It was funded by Franklin D. Roosevelt under the Emergency Banking Act of 1933, with Archie Lochhead serving as its first Director. The Special Drawing Rights Act of 1968, 22 U.S.C. § 286o, likewise provided that any special drawing rights (SDRs) allocated by the International Monetary Fund or otherwise acquired by the United States are resources of the ESF. In accordance with the Act, SDRs can be "monetized" (i.e., converted into dollars) by having the Secretary of the Treasury issue Special Drawing Rights Certificates (SDRCs) to the Federal Reserve System. The amount of SDRCs are limited to the dollar value of the ESF's SDR holdings. The dollar proceeds of such monetizations are assets of the ESF, and the SDRCs are a counterpart liability of the ESF. Treasury has a written understanding with the Fed that the SDRCs will be redeemed when ESF dollar holdings appear to be in excess of foreseeable requirements. Treasury does not pay interest on SDRCs. A change in the law, in 1970, allows the Secretary of the Treasury, with the approval of the President, to use money in the ESF to "deal in gold, foreign exchange, and other instruments of credit and securities." The U.S. government used the fund to provide $20 billion in currency swaps and loan guarantees to Mexico following the 1994 economic crisis in Mexico. This was somewhat controversial at the time, because President Clinton had tried and failed to pass the Mexican Stabilization Act through Congress. Use of the ESF circumvented the need for approval of the legislative branch. In response, Congress passed and President Clinton signed the Mexican Debt Disclosure Act of 1995, which implicitly accepted the use of the ESF, but required reports to Congress every six months on the status of the loans. At the end of the crisis, the U.S. made a $500 million profit on the loans. On September 19, 2008, U.S. Treasury Department announced that up to $50 billion in the ESF would temporarily be made available to guarantee deposits in certain money market funds.

While earthworms have been found to be a huge benefit to most ecological systems, there are instances where their presence can do more harm than good. Invasive species of earth worms have made their way north in the United States and are doing their job too well! They've moved into formerly worm-free forests, which rely on undecayed leaf matter. When worms decompose that leaf layer, the ecology may shift, making it uninhabitable for certain species of trees, ferns and wildflowers. It's of particular concern in the Great Lakes region when anglers simply dump their bait worms back into the soil, creating a difficult environment for old growth sugar maples, and other plants and animals. With support from the National Science Foundation, students from the Natural Resources Research Institute at the University of Minnesota, Duluth have launched a public education campaign. They're interacting with anglers, urging them to put unused bait worms into special containers rather than just dumping them in the dirt. The hard part is convincing folks these worms are a problem!

In June 2010 Tom Lowe, a senior social research officer with the Department of Sustainability and the Environment in Victoria, Australia, was awarded a research scholarship by the Australian Emergency Services Foundation (www.esf.com.au). The research proposed to identify the practical steps that Emergency Service Organisations (ESOs) in Australia can take in helping communities prepare for and adapt to natural hazards such as bushfire, flood or storm events. By interviewing practitioners from the Victorian emergency services and academics with expertise in the fields of climate change and human adaptation to change in the UK, the research was able to identify a suite of approaches that could be practicably delivered by ESOs. The research concluded that ESOs themselves cannot create community 'resilience'; this is already inherent within communities. Instead, they can play an important role in creating platforms and environments in which community members can learn from each other and, with the appropriate kinds of agency support, identify the pathways that will be most effective in adapting to disruption and change. In an effort to ensure uptake and understanding of these concepts by emergency service practitioners, Tom chose to communicate the outcomes through a documentary. This learning aid is aimed at emergency managers and is intended to stimulate thinking around the kinds of community engagement programmes and approaches that would be most effective and deliverable amongst the many competing and often divergent emergency management objectives. The full-length (40 minute) version can be viewed by following this link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9riCb1L0m4o) and the DVD can obtained by contacting Tom Lowe on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Health and Human Services The Role of Public Health in a Nuclear or Radiological Terrorist Incident CDC DV0011 2005 Centers for Disease Control. The events of September 11, 2001, showed that terrorists will use any means to cause harm and disrupt the lives of the American people.

In research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Schools of Public Health, as well as surveys performed by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, public health workers have stated that they feel unprepared to deal with radiological terrorism. In response to concerns raised by the public health workforce, this program will provide public health personnel with the most current information about the roles of federal response teams and local and state public health services. In addition, viewers will be given basic information on radiation principles, possible scenarios involving the release of radioactive materials, radiation protective measures, and evacuation and sheltering guidelines.
