Federal Grants Advance Public Health Jobs-Training, Emergency Preparedness Throughout Northeastern U.S.
The announcement was made during the School of Public Health's 25th anniversary convocation ceremony which welcomed new undergraduate and graduate students to campus.
The new grants will help the School provide health workforce and emergency preparedness training. The school has a successful track record of providing training in emergency preparedness and response for New York’s public health workforce through its Center for Public Health Preparedness (CPHP), funded by CDC since 2002.
Training and collaborative projects developed by Empire State PHTC will be based on ongoing assessment of the public health workforce throughout New York. One of the collaborative projects currently in development in the Preventive Medicine Residency programs at both schools involves faculty and students working on issues related to Native American health.
Through a unique partnership with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the School fosters growth and development on the 87-acre East Campus through collaborative initiatives with established and start-up biotech firms, as well as Tech Valley High School and the University's Cancer Research Center.
Educationally and culturally, the University at Albany-SUNY puts "The World Within Reach" for its 18,000 students.
Power outages, hurricanes, floods, or snow storms – it’s important to plan ahead for emergencies. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and the Department of Public Health (DPH) have partnered together to launch two public information programs to help residents be ready for emergencies and disasters.
A counterpart to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) national Ready campaign, MEMA’s Ready Massachusetts program empowers Bay State residents to prepare for and respond to natural, technological, and man-made disasters. Be Informed – Know when specific emergencies such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and winter storms may occur by paying attention to severe weather watches and warnings.
Make a Plan – Prepare a designated communications plans for your home in case of emergency or disasters. Build an Emergency Kit – Every home and business should have a basic emergency supply kit ready for any emergency, at any time of year.
Get Involved – Disaster preparedness, response, and recovery takes the whole community to be effective. DPH’s Together We’re Ready campaign encourages Massachusetts communities to prepare for public health emergencies as well as severe weather and natural disasters.
We’re All in This Together – Take additional steps planning if you or someone close to you has a disability or other access and functional needs. Get Vaccinated – Help fight the flu by remembering to get a yearly flu shot at a local health center or school-based flu vaccination clinic. Massachusetts residents can help ensure safety by preparing for potential emergencies ahead of time. This is a guest blog post from the Highway Safety Division (HSD) of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS). It may have been a drill, but Wednesday’s emergency simulation was treated as the real deal — even those not directly involved were treated as if there was an emergency.
The scenario was like something out of an action film, but there was no Bruce Willis to save the day — it was all local.
The scenario, CBJ Emergency Programs Manager Tom Mattice said, was a barge carrying explosives that ran into a cruise ship at the A-J dock.


Twenty-six “patients” were admitted to BRH, and the Red Cross and university set up a shelter at Auke Bay.
A secondary scenario took place at the home of KTOO-FM, an improvised explosive device that triggered the evacuation of the station and the response of Juneau Police Department, who determined the IED was dangerous and disposed of it.
Emergency response was tested in areas including waterside and portside security, emergency medical services, shelter accomodation, as well as handling hazardous materials and explosives. He said city departments always train for mass casualty disasters, but this scenario brought in special units.
In Wednesday’s scenario, response was limited to local resources, so nobody would be called in from Elmendorf Air Force Base, for example. Temple Joanna Jackson is a longtime Red Cross volunteer asked to respond during the exercise. While the big picture means providing for the safety of people affected by an emergency, responders handle countless other details, from setting up various stations at a shelter to helping people get in touch with family members and organizing new volunteers on the spot, Jackson said. While the response times and reactions were what they had hoped for, Mattice said responders are always looking for ways to improve. Norwegian governmental supervisory body, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) conducted an audit of how emergency preparedness aspects are reviewed on board the West Elara jack-up rig.
The objective of the audit activity was to verify the organisation and management system on the facility as regards the preparedness discipline, as well as in relation to applicable regulatory requirements.
In the construction phase, the West Elara, a Gusto MSC design rig, built in Singapore’s Jurong shipyard has been registered in the Norwegian ships’ register so the Norwegian Maritime Directorate has followed up the technical aspect of emergency preparedness on board.
West Elara is designed to operate in harsh environments, in water-depths down to 150 m with drilling depths down to 10,670 m.

Maersk Drilling Norge AS was established in 1990 and employs a staff of approximately 1000 people. The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) today announced it had carried out an audit of leadership and management of preparedness on Statoil’s Heidrun field from 3-4 September 2012.
The objective of the audit was to gain an overview of processes and systems that contribute to ensuring comprehensive leadership and management of preparedness on Heidrun. Furthermore, improvement items were identified in relation to lifeboat refresher course, stand-in role and experience transfer. The oil field in the Norwegian Sea has been producing oil and gas since October 1995 from a floating tension leg platform with a concrete hull.

Department of Health and Human Services' Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to launch the Empire State Public Health Training Center, to help strengthen New York's public health infrastructure.


The University at Albany, Harvard University and Columbia University are the only learning centers serving the northeast region of the United States. Training has been made available to the 18,700 public health workers in New York through interactive online courses, in-person trainings, exercises, and satellite broadcasts on topical areas.
Empire State PHTC will be a partnership between UAlbany's School of Public Health and the University at Buffalo School of Public Health and Health Professions. Because of barriers that limit participation by public health workers in face-to-face training and in order to reach the largest number possible, Empire State PHTC will emphasize a distance learning approach. An internationally recognized research university with 58 undergraduate majors and 128 graduate degree programs, UAlbany is a leader among all New York State colleges and universities in such diverse fields as public policy, nanotechnology and criminal justice. And because the Commonwealth designates September “National Preparedness Month,” there’s no better time to start than now.
Think about your health needs, vulnerabilities, and capabilities when you make your emergency preparedness plan. Be sure to practice safe handwashing techniques and cover your coughs and sneezes to prevent the spread of colds and flu. The 120th running of the Boston Marathon will be held on Patriot’s Day, Monday, April 18, 2016. Emergency responders from the City and Borough of Juneau, Coast Guard Sector Juneau, Bartlett Regional Hospital, the University of Alaska Southeast and the American Red Cross participated in the event. Officers told the Empire it was just a drill, but no information could be revealed and press was forbidden from crossing the orange plastic barriers.
According to a CBJ press release, the exercise was to test the capability of Juneau’s emergency responders in a safe training environment. She excused herself from a work meeting to participate and got across town in about 20 minutes, she said. Working with a number of agencies, multiple call centers and dispatch areas in a complicated and chaotic situation, Mattice said they always learn a lot and grow a lot during a drill, but they also isolate areas where improvements could be made. Also, the regulator said that instructions to response personnel, internal training of well safety and first aid teams and inventory lists at fire stations all need some improvements. Discuss what it will take to survive in the current market, how organisations are reinventing themselves and how your company could become the next industry disruptor. Collaborating with preparedness experts at the School of Public Health at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) in the PERLC project, the partners will continue their important work of training public health professionals throughout New York and New Jersey by making intensive use of distance learning technologies which have proven to be cost-effective and easily updated to reflect the best-available information.
With a curriculum enhanced by 300 study-abroad opportunities, UAlbany launches great careers. Jackson was one of many volunteers who helped set up a shelter at the UAS Recreation Center.
