Relatively rare events like volcanic eruptions  are difficult to anticipate and plan for.

Just more than four hours into the Boston Marathon there were two explosions within a few blocks of the finish line. More than a terrorist incident, this attack was one of many mass casualty incidents that have occurred this year. According to the Massachusetts Standing Committee on Multiple Casualty Incident Planning and Evaluation’s Emergency Medical Care Advisory Board, a multiple casualty incident (MCI) is defined as “one in which the number of people killed or injured in a single incident is large enough to strain or overwhelm the resources of local EMS providers.” In urban areas, such as Boston, there are significant resources to address the day-to-day pre-hospital needs of the city. Each community must have an MCI plan that defines: incident leadership, the role and responsibilities of all first responders, the community’s capabilities, and mutual aid systems to address potential threats. It needs to also be noted that an overwhelming number of those who responded to the injured were spectators and bystanders.

Shelter and Radiation Reception Center Exercise: Saturday, May 7, 8am-12pm at the Sanchez Center, 1616 Caffin Avenue, NOLA 70117.
All NOMRC members are required to complete three trainings prior to being deployed for an emergency. FEMA IS-700 is an introduction to national incident management system and will show volunteers how agencies respond and coordinate services during emergencies. Optional trainings, exercises and volunteer activities will be held throughout the year to provide volunteers with additional emergency response-related skills.
We kicked off the New Orleans Radiation Response Volunteer Corps (NORRVC) with our first orientation. The NOMRC operated six first aid stations on the K10 Day of Service, August 29th, in partnership with NOEMS VIGORs.

The months of May, June, and July were packed with outreach to senior living facilities, health fairs, and community meetings.
At our annual Hurricane Season Training in May, NOMRC members were trained in outreach, body mechanics, sheltering, evacuation, call center operations, and working with individuals with special needs. Over the course of Mardi Gras weekend, several of our volunteers, along with volunteers from EMS, joined together to operate 3 First Aid Stations on three of the biggest parade days. MRC volunteers and NOHD staff, along with staff from the Department of Health and Hospitals Office of Public Health, attended the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene to distribute Ebola awareness materials.
MRC volunteers got together to do some brainstorming at our strategic planning meeting. On Sunday, August 24th, the New Orleans Health Department opened an emergency cooling shelter due to a heat advisory for a heat index over 105. Three NOMRC volunteers were trained and certified alongside New Orleans Health Department staff on Basic Life Support CPR.  Thank you, New Orleans Emergency Medical Services, for hosting the training! The National Weather Service taught 5 MRC members and other local volunteers about the different ways to spot and report a variety of weather events. NOMRC members and the New Orleans Health Department gave out free flu shots to 44 people at NOLA 4 Life Day in Central City.
The NOMRC, Red Cross and New Orleans EMS operated 19 first aid stations over 6 days of Mardi Gras parades. To prepare for Mardi Gras first aid stations, MRC members became certified in CPR and First Aid. MRC members came together at NOLA Brewing Company to celebrate the start of 2016 and another year of service with the Medical Reserve Corps. A multitude of dangerous particels and gases, such as aerosols, are carried in volcanic ash. Federal officials believe both devices were small and at least one device was placed in a trash container. Today’s special event contingency planning requires emergency planners to work extensively with local, state and federal emergency professionals to plan for mass causality contingencies.
All indications are that the response in Boston appeared well planned and well executed.  Police, fire, EMS and even the Massachusetts National Guard responded to and stabilized the incident quickly and decisively. Special permitted events must also be required to work with local officials to ensure that there are contingency plans in place to meet the potential needs based on a comprehensive risk analysis of the event, venue and host community. This attack reminds all in emergency management that large-scale incidents can occur anywhere at any time. Call Days take place in City Hall, 1300 Perdido Street, 8th floor in the Health Department.

This training will give you a basic understanding of NOMRC's role during public health emergencies, what you can expect when you deploy, and the MRC core competencies. 11 members from the NOMRC participated in the introductory training on the basics of radiation and community reception centers. We served over 100 people and contributed over 80 hours of volunteer time to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. They enjoyed conversation, fun and games as well as got to share some of their favorite recipes with their peers. They volunteered at a table during registration to pass out general information and answer questions. The team set some goals for future recruitment efforts which will all be used to create our plan for the upcoming year.
The shelter was set up with the help of MRC volunteers and brought in nine people who needed a cold drink, a meal and a place to cool off.
EU regulations mean we have to point this out, hence the annoying message, which will only appear on this first visit. Some of these include Carbon dioxide, Sulfates (sulfur dioxide), Hydrochloric acid, Hydroflouric acid.
This does not occur without well developed policy, operational plans and exercises to ensure that responders understand their role and that agencies have the resources needed to execute plans quickly.
Emergency planning must address the community’s needs based on available resources and work to integrate regional and state resources to address large-scale incidents. Look out for more trainings in the future on radiation preparedness, psychological first aid, and community reception centers!
