A novel approach to handling mass refugee situations in the United State.pdf - the original proposal. I presented this outline to two of the Directors of the American Red Cross in Washington, DC earlier this year. I talked with FEMA at the end of August 2007 and they are also extremely interested in the plan, and I believe that American Red Cross is discussing it with the Californian branch of FEMA also.
The technology parts of this plan: a GIS, perhaps some online training tools, and a database application are well below the level of complexity of many services offered by, for instance, Yahoo or Google.
To do the supply chains for the building materials would require assistance from building supply companies like Home Depot or Lowes, and the tape is going to need to be stockpiled - call 3M.
You can build a disaster response capability based on the hexayurt by working with your community and some companies. Over the past year, it has become apparent that a basic, but functional, hexayurt can be cut in the field without power tools. Firstly, the ability to rapidly establish field hospitals, using military equipment for treatment facilities, and hexayurts and other temporary shelters for wards may address the need for segregated hospital facilities for victims. Secondly, "wash and change" stations must be established at the perimeter, where people who show low levels of contamination can shower, abandon their contaminated clothing, and step into new outfits.
In practice, these "wash and change" stations also act as a filter - after washing and changing, people who still show significant levels of radioactive exposure may need to be quarantined, and can be expected to become very sick in the immediate future, where as those who show levels closer to background exposure may be safely resettled into the general population. People who have taken extremely high levels of contamination may require seclusion while the short half-life isotopes degrade.
Finally, the overwhelming desire to Do Something can be channeled into shelter construction and housing the homeless after a nuclear event. Strengthening Regional Disaster Response TeamsThe American Red Cross is working to reinforce disaster response efforts of the Red Cross partners in East Asia and the Pacific by supporting trainings for Regional Disaster Response Teams.

This Institute is a leading Nodal Agency for imparting training to National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and Civil Agencies.
The Institute has been earmarked as a specialized Institute for Flood Water Rescue and is entrusted to train officers and men who are inducted into NDRF Bns and subsequently personnel of other Organizations in the specialized field of Flood Water Rescue. The Institute will also be imparting training for Middle and Senior level Officers involved in Administrative works in Pre and Post Disaster Preparedness, Community Awareness, Relief Camp Management etc. The Institute has been earmarked to be permanently established in Kolkata where it will be co-located with an NDRF Bn. Please note that there is new material on this Appropedia page which is not in the original proposal.
An organization like that could build and host this service (except the financial infrastructure) as a way of helping ordinary Americans protect themselves in the event of a natural disaster or terrorism. But with these pieces assembled, plus perhaps some of the additional infrastructure components outlined in the presentation PDF, there is no reason why an extremely high level of resilience could not be achieved without requiring complex government planning. 4 billion board feet (approximately 500,000,000 4'x8' panels) are used every year, which gives a daily supply volume sufficient to shelter around 600,000 people. This approach gives an hour to hour and a half end-to-end construction time for the shelter.
These items can be provided by the large retail stores - simply transporting the stock wholesale is probably the best immediate approach.
Rather than siting shelters for these people in areas with existing infrastructure (homes) it may be wiser to site buildings for them in a green field area, with some separation from the general population until their condition stabilizes. These teams of Red Cross responders are specifically designed to ensure neighboring countries are ready to assist when the local Red Cross lacks the resources to respond alone.
It also acts as a think tank for Disaster Response Training in BSF and coordinates all disaster response activities with other organizations. These courses will involve Joint Mock Exercises, Vertical Interactions, Workshops and Seminars which will dwell upon Case studies and effectiveness of the skills provided to the NDRF pers by the Training Institutes.

I'm publishing it widely because it is a community-led disaster response plan rather than something driven from centralized resources like those of government agencies. Heavy duty insulation boards cannot be cut using this approach, but they comprise only a few percent of the total board volume.
Shower greywater should probably be routed into settlement pits (which can be dug rapidly with backhoes) so that radioactive particles are not flushed directly into drains. The trainings bring together staff and volunteers from numerous Red Cross partners and give them a common training so that, when the time comes, they can both help with disaster responses in their own countries and seamlessly integrate into the lifesaving work performed by their colleagues in nearby countries. Future courses of BIDR will include specialized training in Flood Water Rescue, Deep water Diving, Motorized Boat, Rowing and Disaster Preparedness.
The Institute also conducts lectures in Disaster Management for in service courses like Senior Command, Junior Command, Command and Logistics and also for Basic courses like AC (DE), SI (DE), and recruit constables in co located institutions.
It is likely that the various manufacturers of these products could stockpile the liquid chemicals required and step up production in a crisis. Standard boards as found in the supply chain can be cut as effectively with a snap-blade knife as with a table saw, which makes field manufacture eminently feasible.
By supporting these trainings, along with human resource databases and other management tools used by the Red Cross to support the deployment and management of these teams, the American Red Cross is helping to ensure that its counterparts in East Asia and the Pacific are ready to respond when a major disaster strikes.
Another issue is tape - 6" wide bidirectional filament tape is widely available but not widely used.
In 2011 and 2012, staff from the Red Cross and Red Crescent partners in the following countries are benefiting from this initiative: Bangladesh, Cook Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Kiribati, Liberia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
Shelters can be constructed with standard 3" tape, which is extremely widely available, but requires more skill and can be a hit-and-miss process.
