Impact of CLP on the disaster resilience of char communities
Disaster Risk Reduction, Resilience and Climate Change are all concepts which mentioned within Chars Livelihoods Programme documents. The CLP addresses certain aspects of these issues and the programme is a clear example of how livelihood projects build up disaster resilience. This study attempts to measure the impact that CLP has had on the disaster resilience of communities. Many of CLP's research papers have shown that flooding and other hazards regularly effect households living on the chars. With the second phase of CLP (CLP2) ending in 2016, it is important that these shocks do not cause households to return to extreme poverty after graduating. The methodology for this study used a mixed methods approach. Quantitative data was collected using questionnaires and then a scorecard created. Key Informant Interviews then collected qualitative data to understand the findings of the survey. The key findings of the study were: •The CLP dramatically improves the overall disaster resilience of communities in all themes. •Women's disaster resilience is greater than men's is after the CLP support package. •All three KII groups (CLP office staff; IMO staff; and Local Government) understand what roles government and NGOs have to play in building disaster resilience of communities. •Plinths are vital for sheltering from floods. •New national policies will take time to implement. •There is a lack of regular assessment on hazards and vulnerability. Recommendations •Continue the current general approach of building disaster resilience of communities. •Partnerships to encourage stakeholders to perform risk assessments on the chars •Distribution of Bangladesh's National Plan for Disaster Management and the Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan to CLP's Implementing Organisations (IMOs) and local government to increase awareness of these policies.

SBCoFD Division 3 Structure Fire Peral Street Victorville
The importance of a regionalized service model and adequate staffing levels being brought to bare early on during an incident is highlighted during this fire. While this particular structure fire occurred in a county pocket in close proximity to the City of #Victorville the closest available resources were dispatched with the first engine arriving within 3 minutes. Many tasks are required in order to assure firefighter and public safety while arriving on scene of a fire. Specific tasks include a 360 evaluation of the building to determine fire location, involvement, and extension, exposures, hazards, rescue, and assessment of strategy to be set for attack. These tasks are the responsibility of the first arriving company officer. While this assessment is happening hose lines are deployed, a water supply is secured and tools are gathered for possible forcible entry. These are just a few examples of the requirements of the three #Firefighters arriving on scene. This is why we support a staffing model of NO LESS than 3 on our engines. With this regionalized approach the closest units are dispatched in order to get the quickest response regardless of city or jurisdiction. This is the case with like service providers who adopt an #ALLRISK service and who are equipped and trained to handle all aspects of #FIRE, #RESCUE, and #EMS service delivery. DATE: 1/3/2015 CONTACT: Mike McClintock, Fire Captain / Public Information Officer New Year’s Day Fire Damages Home In Victorville Location: 14500 Block of Peral St, Victorville, CA Incident: Residential Structure Fire Summary: Firefighters from the City of Victorville responded to a reported structure fire in the 14500 block of Peral St, in Victorville. The first engine arrived on-scene within (3) minutes and reported a well involved attached garage with extension to the home. With an aggressive fire attack and vertical ventilation, the fire was brought under control within 20 minutes. Residents stated they smelled smoke and opened up the garage door to see a large fire in the garage. Thankfully they shut the door, which helped isolate the fire to the garage. All residents self-evacuated and called 911 to report the fire. As a precaution, fire crews did a search to confirm all residents were evacuated. (4) Engines, (1) Truck Company, (1) Battalion Chief responded to the fire. One victim was treated and released at the scene for smoke inhalation. Damages are estimated at $75,000, with a content loss of $25,000. Also destroyed by the fire was a passenger vehicle, which was in the garage at the time of the fire. Residents were doing laundry at the time of the fire. A San Bernardino County Fire Investigator determined to be the clothes dryer in the garage. A quick response to the scene helped keep the fire at bay, and reduce damages to the home. Remember to have and practice a home escape plan, including your families meeting place. This avoids confusion in case of an emergency, and allows your family to account for each family member.

Firefighters Undergo Rail Safety Training
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- The Asheville Fire Department along with other area agencies participated in a rail safety and emergency response training Wednesday to learn what to do in an emergency hazmat situation on the rail line. "Training is definitely the key," said Abby Moore with the Asheville Fire Department. "The more you train, the better you know." The training is offered every year, free of charge, and is sponsored by TRANSCAER, Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response. Emergency responders from across Western North Carolina participate in both hands on exercises and in classroom instruction on leak assessment and control. Other topics include safety on railroad property, interpreting shipping documents, rail equipment identification, locomotive fires, incident response procedures and working with railroad officials. Moore says a hazmat situation could arise at any moment and it is important to be prepared for when it happens, rather than if it happens, given the range of materials that are transported by the rail‚"everything from sulfur and propane to coal and grain. "We see this type of transportation, coming up and down our rail systems up and down I-40, I-26 and we want to teach real life situations, what would happen," Moore said. It is held at the Norfolk Southern Rail yard and will continue Thursday. "The satisfaction to know that I can maybe make a difference. If something were to happen, maybe I've got a plan of making a difference," said Larry Williams with Norfolk Southern Railroad.

New Emergency Animal Mortality Management CPS and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza
Full title: New Emergency Animal Mortality Management (368) Conservation Practice Standard and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Presented by: Glenn Carpenter, Ph.D., National Leader, Animal Husbandry, USDA NRCS Ecological Sciences Division, Washington, D.C. Cherie LaFleur, P.E., Environmental Engineer, USDA NRCS Central National Technology Support Center, Ft. Worth, TX Lori Miller, P.E., Senior Staff Officer / Environmental Engineer, Science, Technology and Analysis Services, Veterinary Services, USDA APHIS, Washington, D.C. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Participants will learn about the new NRCS conservation practice standard CPS 368 to manage emergency related animal mortality and about USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) emergency response in the current Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza situation, including the roles and responsibilities of both NRCS and APHIS. This webinar is a review of the new NRCS conservation practice standard for Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368). With climate change there seems to be an increasing number of storm events and associated animal mortality disaster situations. There are also a large number of emergency mortality situations related to animal health; the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) situation of Spring 2015 is an example. Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368) has been removed from CPS 316 Animal Mortality Facility to strengthen NRCS’s ability to deal with emergency situations, increase the number of disposal options, and more explicitly define NRCS’ roles and responsibilities in providing assistance in a disaster situation. The webinar will also discuss APHIS's role in the recent HPAI outbreak, and how we can coordinate our roles in future events. This webinar includes an informative Q&A session at the end of the presentation, for a total duration of 1:53 minutes for the on-demand webinar.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

Six Radiation Storage Tanks Leaking in Hartford, Washington (2013)
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says six underground radioactive waste tanks at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site are leaking. Inslee made the announcement Friday afternoon after meeting with federal officials in Washington, D.C. Last week it was revealed that one of the 177 tanks at south-central Washington's Hanford Nuclear Reservation was leaking liquids. Inslee called the latest news "disturbing." The tanks already are long past their intended 20-year life span. They hold millions of gallons of a highly radioactive stew left from decades of plutonium production for nuclear weapons. The U.S. Department of Energy said earlier that liquid levels were decreasing in one of the tanks at the site. Monitoring wells near the tank have not detected higher radiation levels. Published on Feb 25, 2013 Abby Martin Breaks the Set with a look at the ongoing nuclear crisis at the Hanford Nuclear site in Washington State, as yet another example of a 'Sacrifice Zone' where the most vulnerable among us are most at risk. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlcWW6brNAo

Sandra Steingraber - Chemical Exposure and Human Health (Part 2)
Delivered November 7th, 2013. Drawing on analysis from her award-winning 2010 book and film, Living Downstream, Steingraber explores the intersections between public health, chemical exposures, climate change, and human rights. Of particular interest to Steingraber are the manifold ecological and human health hazards posed by oil and gas extraction via hydraulic fracturing, and the rise of a new global human rights movement that is confronting both toxic trespass and the public health emergency of climate change by calling for a redesign of our energy systems and chemical policies. Ongoing public resistance to proposed plans for a Liquefied Natural Gas terminal off the coast of Long Island near Jones Beach – the Port Ambrose project – will be part of the discussion.

Liquefied natural gas
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas (predominantly methane, CH4) that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport. It takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state. It is odorless, colorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive. Hazards include flammability after vaporization into a gaseous state, freezing and asphyxia. The liquefaction process involves removal of certain components, such as dust, acid gases, helium, water, and heavy hydrocarbons, which could cause difficulty downstream. The natural gas is then condensed into a liquid at close to atmospheric pressure by cooling it to approximately −162 °C (−260 °F); maximum transport pressure is set at around 25 kPa (4 psi). LNG achieves a higher reduction in volume than compressed natural gas (CNG) so that the (volumetric) energy density of LNG is 2.4 times greater than that of CNG or 60 percent of that of diesel fuel. This makes LNG cost efficient to transport over long distances where pipelines do not exist. Specially designed cryogenic sea vessels (LNG carriers) or cryogenic road tankers are used for its transport. LNG is principally used for transporting natural gas to markets, where it is regasified and distributed as pipeline natural gas. It can be used in natural gas vehicles, although it is more common to design vehicles to use compressed natural gas. Its relatively high cost of production and the need to store it in expensive cryogenic tanks have hindered widespread commercial use. This video is targeted to blind users.
