Barring any sudden personal tragedies or the ability to resettle on a different planet, this will impact us all: you, your family and friends and me, my family and friends. Running air conditioners is the short-sighted answer and it’s not just about guzzling energy which may overload the grid but also about dumping hot exhaust. If we don’t #design solutions together, we could end up engineering our way out of one problem and into another.
Now Business Continuity is no longer viewed as being the be all and end all, but rather one part of the solution. Without a full understanding of risk assessment and management, crisis management and business continuity someone filling in a template can never create a document which lives up to its fullest potential. We often answer questions about how exactly our School Emergency Kits (S221 and S220) match up with official requirements, especially following our launch of the UK’s first School Resilience Package. To aid clarity, the following image is a comparison drawn across the most recent NaCTSO guidance, a typical School Emergency Management Plan (SEMP) template1 as currently in use and both School Emergency Kits available on this website.
About 6 weeks ago I first told you about the successful Community Resilience model “NYLRF Community Emergency Plan scheme” in my post UK Community Resilience – a brilliant example of what really works. Since the scheme’s launch, North Yorkshire Resilience Forum (NYLRF) has seen a marked increase in community motivation, engagement and response. What an amazing U-turn away from seemingly countless evening meetings and long presentations to sceptical audiences by hard-working NYRLF staff!
Thousands of people are affected by known flood risks or sadly have previous experiences of incidents such suffering prolonged power outages or being cut off because of severe weather. Since it has been shown that the NYLRF Community Emergency Plan scheme increases both personal and community resilience it will be made available in areas where there is little or no warning of flash floods. Tweetthank you for sharing and helping raise awareness for Community Resilience and Preparedness! Montana has spent the past decade building its capacity for a multitude of potentially hazardous events. In early June, displaced residents began returning to the homes and businesses from which they had been evacuated two weeks earlier. Dayle Perrin, Montanaa€™s Hospital Preparedness Coordinator, praised the work of the hospital in Roundup. It was a scenario that played out again and again as a state of emergency was declared for all but three of Montana's 56 counties. In Billings, six inches of water ran through the streets, but pumps installed at the hospital kept the patients and building dry. The Public Health Emergency Preparedness Section (PHEP) manages the health, medical, and sheltering responsibilities for the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS).
The 2010-11 winter was one of the snowiest on record in Montana with snowfalls in some parts of the state totaling over 100 inches. Throughout the protracted flooding, Montanaa€™s emergency preparedness efforts demonstrated how mutual aid and coordinated communication protect health. The challenges of the 2011 flooding were many, but Montana public health workers discovered that all their preparedness work had paid off.
With record snowfall, Montana officials expected larger amounts of waterfrom melting snow in the spring. Flooding in Crow Agency, Montana which experienced loss of their water system, had a nursing home evacuation, and had a hospital evacuation.
Flooding in Glasgow, Montana which lasted longer than three months andhas an even longer agricultural impact. Flooding in Roundup, Montana made certain parts only accessible by airdrop and some by boat for two weeks. Flooding in Billings, Montana which was of short duration but made thecity realize its need for flood emergency planning. Academics, practitioners and policy makers alike have discussed the opportunity and the transformational ‘space’ that a disaster can create. The START DEPP Linking Preparedness Response and Resilience in Emergency Contexts (LPRR) project recognises the opportunity that the humanitarian sector has to tackle underlying vulnerabilities, inequality and marginalisation.

It recognises the opportunity that organisations have to build community resilience before, during and after a disaster.
With the hope of figuring out a strategic, practical method of utilising this opportunity and improving practice, the LPRR project will be exploring 8 past humanitarian interventions and mapping out the relationship that they had with resilience building. We began this journey in the Philippines exploring the consortia’s response to typhoon Ketsana in 2009 and typhoon Haiyan in 2013. LPRR asked the community and in country field staff what they think, what resilience means to them, how they feel the intervention could have been improved, what worked, what failed and how community resilience was (or could have been) strengthened. It was clear that a core message coming out of the Philippines was that the community* want to be involved from the offset. It was understood that resilience means different things to different communities and is very dependent upon the context and underlying vulnerabilities. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today announced the launch of the DHS Campus Resilience Pilot Program (CR Pilot) for U.S. Academic facilities also offer local emergency managers with potential sources of expertise among their faculty and staffs.
Six colleges or universities nationwide will be competitively selected by DHS to pilot an emergency preparedness and resilience planning process.
The CR Pilot is a joint initiative of and is supported by DHS’ Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S.
The CR Pilot addresses a recommendation from the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council that DHS establish a campus resilience program.

Tongue firmly in cheek I squarely blame it on the cuts ?? for there is now a modern, leaner and perhaps more elegant version that can be counted down on just one hand.
Initially conceptualized to run on facebook as part of this year’s “September is Preparedness Month” campaign contribution we have honed in on the five preparedness core areas to complement the 5P’s you’re now already familiar with. Eating and moving provide warmth but rest is inevitable; insulation via Emergency Blankets, Sleeping Bags, Tents and Beds. No use having a suture kit if you only know cross stitch but you it’s difficult to overdo the soap. The world – us – will have emitted enough carbon to warm the planet by 2°C  by the year 2036, that’s just 20 years down the road! The problem is, nobody knows just exactly what it all means.  Climate change is one of the most urgent and profoundly complex challenges we face. Where we currently stand with producing not only efficient but also sustainable air conditioning systems I do not know (see The Guardian).
Thermostatic expansion, a volume and height increase as sea water warms plays a role as does melting ice.
Our friendly and knowledgeable team is happy to advice or simply browse the Emergency Kit section so see standard and custom-made kits.
However, frankly speaking, not a very good one especially when leaving gaps which mean that individuals such as headteachers can be prosecuted.
Then, I gave you some solid scientific background on why this project was destined to score excellent results.
Communities will be better prepared and be able to act as competent first responders in many cases. Although the sparsely populated state of Montana is less likely to be the target of a terrorist attack, it too has spent the past decade building its capacity for a multitude of potentially hazardous events. Perrin explained, "Their staff really stepped up and kept everything going smoothly." They were also able to capitalize on the previously established Montana Health Care Mutual Aid Agreement that enabled area hospitals to share employees and supplies in case of emergencies like this. To ensure a coordinated response, their staff gathered information regarding sheltering needs, the availability of drinking water, impacts to health care operations, and water levels from affected and potentially affected local and tribal health jurisdictions, hospitals, and long-term care facilities.
From May through June, the calls became routine." On a daily basis, the DPHHS team updated the list of at-risk facilities and ensured there were no evacuation threats or water and sewer issues. In previous years, the tributaries of the Missouri River divert melting snow downriver, eventually draining into the Mississippi River. When the waters finally began to recede, DPHHS was there to provide information to communities about the clean-up.
Local, state, and tribal public health workers had the relationships and protocols in place to keep the public safe.
Individuals, communities, organisations and governments are forced to stop and reflect and therefore given the opportunity to transform.
It understands that a disaster creates a short period of time, a small ‘space’ where risk awareness is high, where communities can be built back better and governments can be more open to be influenced for improved legislation development and implementation. These case studies aim to develop a set of practical actions that can be done before, during and after a humanitarian response.

The community want to have a purpose and agency and not be perceived as powerless victims dependent on aid.
Ultimately both communities wanted the resources and knowledge to look after themselves and be well connected and know where and how to ask for help and support. Not only were the programmatic challenges explored but the team also a set of deeper and more complex limitations.
Colleges and universities are integral partners with their communitiees in emergency management and disaster planning.
The CR Pilot will reach a diverse group of colleges and universities of various settings and sizes. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Student and Exchange Visitor Program, and the Office of Academic Engagement. But there is another dimension of organization that you may not have great knowledge about: Feng Shui. EU regulations mean we have to point this out, hence the annoying message, which will only appear on this first visit. The recent “Run – Hide – Tell” safety video from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office is an excellent example which reflects this.
Also recommended are waterproof gaffa tape and either plastic sheeting or garbage bags that can be cut and taped to provide emergency seals.
If none of our standard emergency kits are suitable, simply contact us for a competitive bespoke quote. Joke aside; it is actually an interesting reaction and not necessarily one born out of simple ignorance.
Spraying or dousing heat stressed people with water only works to some extent as Dr Sundeep Dhillon explained recently at the Extreme Medicine Expo,  personal factors such as fitness and acclimatization play a huge role. We need a sense that we individually can really do something, change behavior, change culture and change our world for the better.

The aim of the Corporate Homicide and Corporate Manslaughter Act was to put an end to organizations being culpable, shifting responsibility to individuals. 1,700), on the banks of the Musselshell River, was one of the worst-hit towns in the state. To provide an accurate picture of the statewide situation, they summarized and shared the information in daily conference call briefings for all interested local and tribal health jurisdictions, hospitals, and partner agencies. In places like Crow Agency, where many citizens as well as the hospital and long term care facility did have to evacuate, DPHHS coordinated efforts with the American Red Cross to ensure displaced patients had food and beds. However, the abundance of melting snow and record rainfall amplified the process and transformed the river systema€™s natural cycle into hazardous flooding.
For example the loss of hope caused by the trauma of the disaster has been identified as a profound issue significantly limiting community’s ability to cope, adapt and transform their lives and livelihoods. At the end of the case studies, the consortia will work together to figure out practical ways to put the recommendations into action.
Selected CR Pilot colleges and universities will have the opportunity to convene their campus leadership and students in facilitated community engagement work and receive technical assistance in assessing and further developing their own campus emergency and resilience plans. He is responsible for coordinating the efforts and training of 41 Fire and ambulance departments in the largest county in NY spread over 2900 square miles supporting a population of 110,000 people.

For example, Freudian’s would point and say: classic denial, one of the most primitive defence mechanisms, a refusal to accept reality to avoid painful feelings. The ukclimateprojections.metoffice data and projections many still use may well be outdated (2009 PDF) assuming ‘medium’ emission scenarios. NYLRF are looking at how Community Emergency Preparedness Planning can integrate with and augment existing Yorkshire water distribution plans. It completely cut off the city, including the route to two full-care hospitals in Billings.
Even though the hospital was protected by a dyke, staff had practiced evacuation drills to move out patients, medical records, and equipment if necessary. All our food products are also available in pallet quantities, please contact two fully-balanced meals per day. At the most fundamental level,  it all starts with prepared individuals that can achieve realistic confidence in the face of crisis. All these ‘pieces’ are massively important Community Resilience Building Blocks and I hope that North Yorkshire’s positive and empowering local culture change will continue to spread far and wide. When a local bridge became impassable, the one-hour drive south to Billings suddenly turned into a six-hour detour to the east. The Crow Agency Indian Health Service Hospital had to put their emergency plans into action, as flooding overwhelmed sewage systems and necessitated an evacuation. Also, North Yorkshire County Council Emergency Planning Unit (NYCC EPU) and the Environment Agency’s Rapid response project are working closely together to engage with communities on their register that are at Very High and High risk of flash flooding. Just how this can achieved in a fairly simple yet extremely effective way I will tell you next time when I talk more about Tadcaster.
An alternative small hospital remained accessible north of the city, but it too was threatened by the flooding as a neighboring dam neared its breaking point. They are doing something truly inspiring to connect people and bring their Community Resilience firmly into the age of social media and the internet.
