The National Disaster Medical System (NDMS)
 
01:31
The National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) is a federally coordinated system within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. NDMS augments the Nation's medical response capability. The overall purpose of the NDMS is to supplement an integrated National medical response capability for assisting State and local authorities in dealing with the medical impacts of major peacetime disasters and to provide support to the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs medical systems in caring for casualties evacuated back to the U.S. from overseas armed conventional conflicts. The National Response Framework utilizes the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS), as part of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Preparedness and Response, under Emergency Support Function #8 (ESF #8), Health and Medical Services, to support Federal agencies in the management and coordination of the Federal medical response to major emergencies and federally declared disasters including: Natural Disasters Major Transportation Accidents Technological Disasters Acts of Terrorism including Weapons of Mass Destruction Events About National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) Our Vision To serve the Federal response by providing disaster medical care to the nation. Our Mission It is the mission of the National Disaster Medical System to temporarily supplement Federal, Tribal, State and Local capabilities by funding, organizing, training, equipping, deploying and sustaining a specialized and focused range of public health and medical capabilities. Components of the National Disaster Medical System -Medical response to a disaster area in the form of personnel, teams and individuals, supplies, and equipment. -Patient movement from a disaster site to unaffected areas of the nation. -Definitive medical care at participating hospitals in unaffected areas.

Landfire - All Lands Data from Vegetation to Fuels: Planning, Engagement, and Feedback
 
57:10
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).

ESF-8: Fatality Management
 
06:33
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.

FEMA Accessible: Federal Emergency Management Agency's National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF)
 
05:40
Closed captioning is available in English, Chinese, German, Hindi, Italian, Khmer, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese. [Transcript:] During and after a disaster, the affected communities try to figure out how to recover and rebuild to a new normal. They also work on mitigation solutions to reduce the risk of damage from the next disaster. The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) is scalable and flexible guidance on how the whole community can build, sustain, and coordinate delivery of recovery capabilities. The focus of the NDRF is to help prepare the community to recover, regardless of the size of the disaster, and encourages an inclusive recovery process which brings together traditional and nontraditional whole community partners to lead, manage, coordinate and participate in recovery efforts while increasing the community’s resilience. An important focus of the framework is that the community leads their recovery process and they have a realistic, well-planned, and a clearly communicated plan for a successful recovery. The framework explains how whole community partners – emergency managers, government agencies, private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and the public – collaborate and coordinate the best recovery and resiliency plan that fits the community’s need. The state and federal government play important roles as supporting partners, providing the community with resources and the support they need. It is important that the recovery plan and process includes the whole community. This includes people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, as they are a part of the whole community and they can offer knowledge and expertise on what they need to recover and how the community can better help prepare for next disaster. A successful recovery requires flexibility, a unified and coordinated effort from the community, commitment to completing projects on time, understanding, and addressing various challenges and needs the community has. Each community’s recovery plan will be different and is based on the circumstances of the disaster’s impact on the community, the obstacles they may face, how they design their plan, and what their priorities are for recovery. The National Disaster Recovery Framework has six Recovery Support Functions (RSF) that are led by designated coordinating federal agencies that work with other primary agencies and supporting organizations whose programs may apply to a specific support function. The Recovery Support Functions are Natural & Cultural Resources, Housing, Economic, Infrastructure Systems, Health and Social Services, and Community Planning and Capacity Building. The Natural & Cultural Resources Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Interior, and supports the protection of natural and cultural resources and historic properties in the community. The Housing Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and coordinates housing solutions that are affordable and accessible to the whole community, including people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs. The Economic Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Commerce, and works with the local community, state, tribal and federal governments, and the private sector to rebuild the local economy. The Infrastructure Systems Recovery Support Function is led by the US Army Corps of Engineers, and works with the community to restore their infrastructure systems and develop a stronger mitigation plan to protect them from future disasters. The Health and Social Services Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Health and Human Services, and addresses the community’s public health, health care facilities, and important social services needs. The Community Planning and Capacity Building Recovery Support Function is led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and engages the community in their recovery planning and capacity to implement and manage their recovery plans. This function builds short-term and long-term community resilience, and empowers the local community leaders and members to make decisions on how to improve recovery outcomes for the whole community. As the NDRF is flexible and adjustable, the community is able to modify its recovery plan to fit their needs. Each part is an important piece in helping you and your community recover from a disaster and be better prepared for the next disaster. The recovery process will be a long and challenging one, but when all of these different parts of the framework work together as a team, they can help reduce the challenges and length of your recovery. For more information about your community’s recovery plans, contact your local emergency manager and learn more about how you can prepare, participate and best support your community.

ESF-8: Hospitals
 
08:31
ESF-8 Partners at our regional Hospitals primary mission in a disaster is the treatment of the citizens of our communities. Hospitals vary greatly in size and resources throughout south central Kansas, but through partnerships in the region Hospitals can call on their partners to best serve their citizens in time of crisis. Hospitals utilize a variation of the Incident Command System (ICS) during a disaster. Although it is specific to hospitals, the language will be familiar to all ESF-8 partners. Hospitals are also able to communicate with other ESF-8 Partner agencies via radio and also utilize a program called EMSystem to publish the number of available beds, which can critical information during a disaster. The South Central Kansas Hospital Preparedness Committee meets regularly with ESF-8 partners to network, share information, and develop plans to ensure the South Central Kansas ESF-8 know who to call in a disaster.

What is EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND? What does EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND mean?

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.

ETH009 - Emergency Training
 
30:21
Hello everybody and welcome back to the Everything Ham Radio Podcast! This is Episode #9, we have past the infamous 7th episode that is the normal stumbling step for podcast and we are one away from double digits! Over the past 8 episodes, we have been talking about all things digital, but this week are going to change gears and start a short series about emergency communications. In part one of this series, this episode, we will be talking about Emergency Training, in part two, Emergency Preparedness and in the last episode in this series we will be talking about Go-packs. Training is probably the most important part about emergency communications. Many years ago, I had heard that when a disaster happens, everything goes out the window. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Things appear to be extremely chaotic at the beginning of a disaster, and in some instances it is, especially if the people that are on the scene at first, decide not to use the NIMS system from the get go. Being a dispatcher now for nearly twelve years, I have seen incidents that are pure chaos and I have seen incidents that are very structured and run smoothly. Those that actually worked right, especially from the beginning, were those incidents that were started with the correct command structure in place and everybody knew or was told what they needed to do. Training is the key to having a well organized incident. Now I know that us, as amateur radio operators, will probably never been in command of an incident, but you still should know how one works. Several years ago, after 9/11, the whole emergency response system has had a complete overhaul. Before 9/11, first responders were encouraged to have formal training on command but it was not a required training unless it was at the local level. Since 9/11 and the conception of Homeland Security, a new system was put into place called the National Incident Management System or NIMS for short. This system was put into place by Homeland Security and is required training to anyone that is going to be assisting in a disaster area. For the First Responder level, which is what Amateur Radio Operators are classified as, there is two courses that you have to take. Links to both of these courses can be found below. The courses are free and you take them online. IS-100 http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS100b.asp IS-700.a NIMS: An Introduction http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is700a.asp These two courses are the two courses that you are required to take if you are going to be helping on an incident. There are some other courses that many agencies recommend that you take as well but are only required on the local level. However, if you are part of the command team for you county, the supervisor level of training that is required is the IS-200.b and the IS-800.b courses. Below are direct links to those and a couple others that some agencies require. I am also including a link to the main course directory in case you want to look and see if there is anything else that you might want to take. IS-200.b ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS200b.asp IS-250 Emergency Support Function 15 (ESF 15) External Affairs http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is250.asp IS-288 The Role of Voluntary Agencies in Emergency Management http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is288.asp IS-800.b National Response Framework, An Introduction http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS800b.asp IS-317 Introduction to CERT http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/IS317/index.htm Main Course List FEMA EMI Independent Study Program http://training.fema.gov/IS/ The ARRL also has an Emergency Communication Training course that is a good thing to take and has a lot of good information. Some agencies also require this course. Arrl emergency communications training http://www.arrl.org/online-course-catalog One thing that I have learned over my career as a dispatcher and to a certain extent my experience in emergency services  with both amateur radio and as a volunteer firefighter, is that you can never have too much training. When crap hits the fan, your body will automatically fall into a mode that we have all heard of, Fight or Flight(now it is Fight, Flight or Freeze). As emergency responders we train so that we know what to do in the event that we are needed. If, for example, you are called upon to go to a shelter and set up a station there. If you have never really trained or practiced setting up a station on emergency power or in a temporary location, then you are going to be wasting valuable time trying to get your station setup. Now I’m not saying that if you practice and/or train on how to set up a temporary station somewhere then you won’t have issues setting it up, but the more you train to do things, the easier it is to problem solve and figure out how to get over those hurdles.   Amateur Radio Club Spotlight   HacDC Amateur Radio Club Club Call Sign:...

Understanding the Proposed Rule on Emergency Preparedness
 
55:28
Understanding the Proposed Rule on Emergency Preparedness (Recorded March 10, 2014) On December 27, 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule in the federal register to establish consistent emergency preparedness requirements for health care providers participating in Medicare and Medicaid, increase patient safety during emergencies, and establish a more coordinated response to natural and man-made disasters, which is out for public comment until March 31st. To assist you in navigating this new proposed rule, ASTHO and NACCHO hosted a webinar, "Understanding the CMS Proposed Rule on Emergency Preparedness." This webinar featured Lisa Parker, JD (Director, Division of Institutional Quality Standards) at the Center for Clinical Standards and Quality at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, who presented on the following related to the CMS Proposed Rule on Emergency Preparedness: • Major highlights from the CMS proposed rule • How these requirements will affect state and local health departments • Open Discussion and Q&A Additional details about the proposed rule can be found here: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/12/27/2013-30724/medicare-and-medicaid-programs-emergency-preparedness-requirements-for-medicare-and-medicaid

Invasion of earthworms on American Forests
 
02:35
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!

Community Resilience in an Uncertain Future: The Role of Australian Emergency Managers
 
03:28
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 t.lowe@hotmail.com.
