When Disaster Strikes: What We Learned from Hurricane Irene (Vermont Disaster Recovery Webinar)
 
01:01:57
Learn more about call center disaster recovery strategies from Vermont Emergency Management's Chief of Field Operations Robert Schell. He coordinated the disaster recovery efforts during Hurricane Irene whose 80-mile-per hour winds and record flooding caused nearly $1 billion in damages, leaving thousands of Vermont residents without water or power. This session will cover different types of disaster threats and the advantages IP-based dispatching systems have in mitigating those situations. The guests will answer questions from participants about best practices in disaster recovery, lessons learned during Hurricane Irene, and why system redundancy matters for public safety answering points (PSAPs). This webinar originally aired on Oct. 20, 2011.

Priest waking with rubber boots holding his gown and saying hello to drivers STORYLINE The Italian Infrastructure Minister said that a state of emergency has been declared in the flood stricken areas in Tuscany and Liguria, including towns that are part of the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Altero Matteoli, who was inspecting flood-ravaged coastal towns said the government has approved 65 (m) million euro (91 (m) million US dollars) in emergency funds. Flash floods and mudslides triggered by heavy rains earlier this week barrelled through picturesque towns along the northwest coast, burying streets under mud, damaging homes, stores, churches and overturning vehicles. At least nine people died. Among hard-hit towns are Monterosso and Vernazza, along the Cinque Terre hiking trail popular for its breathtaking views. In Vernazza, the mud reached first floor heights, and residents could be seen walking into their homes using the windows as doors. The "Blue Marlin" is now under three-four metres of mud, he said.

Harwich Oil Spill Response Drill June 12, 2017
 
05:54
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) sponsored a full-scale oil-spill-response training exercise in Harwich on June 12, 2017. The drill involved personnel from the Harwich and Dennis fire departments and harbormasters from Chatham, Harwich, and Dennis. The MassDEP Marine Oil Spill Prevention and Response Program Coordinator and members of the Emergency Response Section also participated in the exercise. Through the Commonwealth’s Marine Oil Spill Prevention and Response Program, MassDEP has prepositioned oil-spill response trailers in 70 coastal communities, including Harwich and Dennis, and developed Geographic Response Plans (GRPs) that identify sensitive areas to protect in the event of an oil spill. The purpose of the drill is to teach local first responders how to properly handle the boom equipment and then test the GRP in a live deployment drill. The exercise included a classroom session, equipment familiarization, and on-water containment-boom deployment at the mouth of the Herring River. Instructors from MassDEP contractor Nuka Research and MassDEP conducted the classroom portion of the drill covering Geographic Response Plans (GRP), booming tactics, incident command and control, and spill management and safety procedures. Immediately following the classroom portion, personnel from Moran Environmental—a MassDEP contractor—familiarized the participants with the trailer’s oil-spill equipment. The final phase of the drill took place at the mouth of the Herring River where containment booms were deployed. Once the boom deployment was completed, an oil surrogate material (peat moss) was released to test the effectiveness of the GRP tactic. The following agencies and organizations were involved in this training: • MassDEP • Harwich Fire Department • Dennis Fire Department • Harwich, Dennis, and Chatham Harbormasters • Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office • Barnstable County All Hazards Incident Management Team • United States Coast Guard • Nuka Research—MassDEP contractor • Moran Environmental—MassDEP contractor The Barnstable County All Hazards Incident Management Team (BCHIMT) used the exercise to simulate incident management over multiple operational periods. The Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office Command Post (S-39) provided communications, incident management support, and drone reconnaissance.

2014 Bag Lecture Series: Visualizing Critical Infrastructure - Todd Sears
 
01:03:32
Bag Lecture Series: Visualizing Critical Infrastructure: The Challenges of Achieving Broad Spectrum Domain Awareness in Time of Crisis August 1 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM The State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) exists to provide leadership decision support and to enable operational coordination in time of crisis. It is the State nexus of information, interaction, and initiative during large scale emergency incidents. One primary responsibility of SEOC staff is to create and maintain a Common Operational Picture (COP) of the incident area in order to facilitate situational awareness and concomitant operational decisions. A key consideration of COP construction is to represent the myriad facilities and networks contained within the 16 Critical Infrastructure (CI) Sectors. The domain is broad and contains many dynamic pieces. Getting a solid grasp on the holistic CI picture, and then operationalizing it is rife with many challenges. The purpose of this talk is to review Vermont’s approach to CI in emergency management, discuss the need for a coherent CI picture in the SEOC, and to outline the main hurdles to achieving this requisite high fidelity About the speaker: Todd Sears is a Program Planner for the Homeland Security Section of DEMHS. His areas of responsibility are Critical Infrastructure Protection Management and Programmatic Monitoring. He was previously the Homeland Security Training Coordinator for the Vermont Fire Academy. A retired Commander in the US Navy, Todd has a BA in Philosophy and International Studies from the University of South Carolina, and an MA in Strategic Planning from the Naval Postgraduate School.

Mayor Bowser Announces DC Preparedness Plan for First Amendment Events, 8/9/18
 
40:02
In preparation for Sunday’s First Amendment activities, Mayor Muriel Bowser announces the District’s public safety plan, which includes the signing of a Mayor’s Order that allows the Bowser Administration to activate the District’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Prior to the announcement, Mayor Bowser hosted a roundtable discussion with community and faith leaders about the upcoming events. “As the nation’s capital, we host millions of visitors each year. Fortunately, very, very few share the views that will be expressed in Lafayette Park on Sunday. Washington, DC is a city of love, inclusion, and diversity, and – like millions of Americans across the nation – we know that the people who are coming here to profess hate and sow division are wrong,” said Mayor Bowser. “This weekend, and every day going forward, we will ensure that the world knows that no matter how much attention these people demand, that they will never represent the values of our city or our nation.” The level two activation of the District’s EOC allows local, state, and federal agencies to work together to coordinate the necessary supports for all critical incident responses. Ahead of this weekend’s events, residents and visitors are being encouraged to sign up for AlertDC at alertdc.dc.gov to receive important and emergency updates from DC Government. “Several District agencies, regional partners, and federal agencies are staffing the District’s EOC to support the law enforcement response,” said DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency Director Dr. Christopher Rodriguez. “Residents and visitors should sign up for AlertDC and be prepared if they see something, to say something to law enforcement.” To prepare for the upcoming First Amendment activities, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is coordinating with U.S. Park Police (USPP) and other District and Federal partners to deploy appropriate resources and personnel for the event. “The Metropolitan Police Department facilitates safe demonstrations on a daily basis,” says Chief of Police Peter Newsham. “Our intentions are to continue to value the first amendment rights of everyone in the District of Columbia without compromising the safety of participants or bystanders.” Due to several First Amendment activities occurring in the District, MPD will enforce the following road closures on Sunday, August 12, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.: · 15th Street, NW, from Constitution Avenue to K Street, NW · 17th Street, NW, from Constitution Avenue to K Street, NW · 18th Street, NW, from E Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, NW · 19th Street, NW, from E Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, NW · 20th Street, NW, from E Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, NW · 21st Street, NW, from E Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, NW · 22nd Street, NW, from E Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, NW · 23rd Street, NW, from Virginia Avenue to Washington Circle, NW · H Street, NW from 17th Street to 15th Street, NW · I Street, NW from 17th Street to 15th Street, NW · K Street, NW from 17th Street to 15th Street, NW · Connecticut Avenue, NW, from H Street to I Street, NW · Vermont Avenue, NW, from H Street to I Street, NW · G Street, NW, from 17th Street to 23rd Street, NW · F Street, NW, from 17th Street to 23rd Street, NW · E Street, NW from 17th Street to 23rd Street, NW During the press conference, Mayor Bowser was joined by: · the Metropolitan Police Department; · DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services; · DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency; · DC Office of Human Rights; · the Mayor’s Office of Religious Affairs; and · the United States Park Police.

Ameren Illinois can't control the weather, but we can prepare for an outage! Use the tips presented below to organize and prepare your home for a power outage. If your electric service is interrupted, call Ameren Illinois at 800.755.5000. Switch off most lights and appliances to help prevent circuit overloading when your power is restored. Keep a battery-powered radio or TV and flashlights available, along with a supply of fresh batteries. Store drinking water, canned/no-cook food and a non-electric can opener. Make sure you have water and food for your pets as well! Have a first-aid kit and needed medications available. Treat all downed or dangling wires as if they are energized electric lines. Stay away, warn others, and call Ameren Illinois at 800.755.5000 to report the location. Portable electric generators can be deadly to those who use them and to utility workers if the devices are not installed properly. The National Electric Code (NEC) requires that when anyone installs a portable electric generator, it must include a safety disconnect switch that will not allow the generator to feed power back into the utility lines. Unless the facility is equipped with a disconnect to the main power lines, electricity could "backfeed" into the utility line. This could result in damage to a neighbor's property or to the customer's own equipment - or it could present unseen hazards to utility employees working on outside power lines. ... (more info)

Green Scene - Preparing for El Nino, Too Much Water
 
01:32:48
Preparing for El Nino: Too Much Water! This El Nino is predicted to be the strongest ever. It could bring extreme rain events this winter to California. While that may help our drought situation, too much water can be both damaging and deadly. Come learn what you can do to prepare and protect your home and business from our top NOAA Weatherman and San Diego's Emergency Operations. Event Detail: El Niño could be one of the strongest on record The latest update from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center on the status of El Niño was released and forecasters are doubling down on the persistence of this event, and predicting big things for when it reaches its peak in the months to come. "We're predicting that this El Niño could be among the strongest El Niños on record, dating back to 1950." The strongest El Niño pattern recorded so far, since 1950, took place in 1997/98, when sea surface temperatures in the central region of the equatorial Pacific Ocean reached 4.14°F above normal. Current ocean temperatures along California's coast are 4-5°F above the norm. Great for fishing and swimming, but potentially disastrous for this winter. We need to be prepared -- as strong water flows cause more damage and deaths than any other catastrophe. Expert Speakers: Alex Tardy, is the warning coordination meteorologist at the National Weather Service in San Diego. Alex has worked at several locations across the country including Vermont, Virginia, Texas, and Utah in a variety of positions including senior weather forecasting duties and science operations officer. Alex is in charge of working with a variety of public and private partners to ensure that weather and hazard information and education is received in the most efficient ways to save lives and property.

Richard Morman, CPP, CSSP - Independent Consultant and Deputy Chief of Police (Retired), The Ohio State University discussed best practices for safely and effectively managing large on-campus events. The terrorism incidents on 9-11-2001 changed the way we all looked at security planning and management forever. Prior to 9-11 those of us that were tasked with planning and managing sports and special event security primarily planned for traffic, parking, crowd management and an occasional weather related incident. That has all changed and continues to evolve. In this presentation, we examined current best practices for safely and effectively managing large on-campus events.

This is a test of the Emegency Jailbait System
 
01:01
This is a test of the Emergency Jailbait System. This is only a test! (And you know who was responsible for this at someone's expense!) NOTE: This is a skit for a series & the events of the series is not all real for it's fiction used for entertainment purposes. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a national warning system in the United States put into place on January 1, 1997, when it superseded the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), which itself had superseded the CONELRAD System. In addition to alerting the public of local weather emergencies such as tornadoes and flash floods, the official EAS is designed to enable the President of the United States to speak to the United States within 10 minutes,[citation needed] but the nationwide federal EAS has never been activated. A national EAS test was conducted on November 9, 2011, at 2 pm Eastern Standard Time. The EAS regulations and standards are governed by the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau of the FCC. Each state and several territories have their own EAS plan. EAS has become part of IPAWS - the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System, a program of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). EAS is jointly coordinated by FEMA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Weather Service (NOAA/NWS). The EAS is used on AM, FM and Land Mobile Radio Service, as well as VHF, UHF, FiOS (wireline video providers), and Cable television including low-power stations. Digital television and digital cable providers, along with Sirius XM satellite radio, IBOC, DAB and digital radio broadcasters have been required to participate in the EAS since December 31, 2006. DirecTV, Dish Network and all other DBS providers have been required to participate since May 31, 2007. The FCC requires all broadcast stations and multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) to install and maintain FCC-certified EAS decoders and encoders at their control points or headends unless they have been designated a non-participating station by the FCC. These decoders continuously monitor the signals from other nearby broadcast stations for EAS messages. For reliability, at least two source stations must be monitored, one of which must be a designated local primary. Stations are to retain the latest version of the EAS handbook. Stations are required by federal law to keep logs of all received required monthly test, required weekly test, emergency action notification, and emergency action termination messages. Logs may be kept by hand but are usually kept automatically by a small receipt printer in the encoder/decoder unit. Logs may also be kept electronically inside the unit as long as there is access to an external printer or method to transfer them to a personal computer. While only the four aforementioned events are required by federal law to be logged, most stations log all received activations. In addition to the audio messages transmitted by radio stations, television stations must also transmit a visual message. A text "crawl" is displayed at the top of the screen that contains all of the information encoded in the initial SAME header. A color-coded "crawl" system is often used where the color signifies the priority of the message. Some television stations transmit only the visual message which is outside of the requirements. A television station may be used for monitoring by another station and thus the audio is necessary. Participating stations are required by federal law to relay EAN (Emergency Action Notification) messages immediately (47 CFR Part 11.54). Stations traditionally have been allowed to opt out of relaying other alerts such as severe weather, and child abduction emergencies (AMBER Alerts) if they so choose. Non-participating stations do not relay National messages. Instead they transmit a message instructing listeners/viewers to tune to another station for the information, and they must then suspend their operation.

Thorium.
 
06:27:00
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.

Tips to Prepare for Hurricane Irene from The White House and FEMA
 
01:12
President Barack Obama holds conference call on Hurricane Irene with FEMA Director Craig Fugate, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Chief of Staff Bill Daley, and John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security, in Chilmark, Mass., Aug. 25, 2011. We're continuing to closely monitor Hurricane Irene as it threatens much of the East Coast, from Florida to Maine. While it's too soon to tell exactly where Irene will make landfall or have the most significant impacts, Administrator Fugate has an update on the ways you can get prepared: Know if you're in an evacuation zone, and what your plan is to evacuate if local officials give the order. If you're not in an evacuation zone, be prepared for potential flooding and power outages. Make sure your emergency kit has supplies to sustain you, your family, and your pets for at least 72 hours. Go to Ready.gov for information on building your emergency kit, making your family emergency plan, and staying informed. If you're on the go, visit m.fema.gov for tips on preparing for a hurricane or tropical storm. Visit hurricanes.gov for the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center. And for the forecast for your local community, visit the National Weather Service website at weather.gov. For the latest on our role, visit the Severe Tropical Weather category on our blog.

Business Continuity: Getting Your Ducks in a Row
 
01:01:37
Are you interested in learning more about the benefits and basics of continuity planning in higher education? In this webinar, presenter Krista M. Dillon, Director of Operations for Safety and Risk Services at the University of Oregon, focuses on the definition, benefits, and basics of continuity planning in higher education. As discussed in our January 17, 2017 webinar, Findings of the 2016 National Higher Education Emergency Management Program Needs Assessment, only 36% of institutions of higher education surveyed currently have business continuity plans in place. These plans help minimize the negative effects of an emergency incident and expedite the restoration of functions on campus. The session also incorporates several examples of how the University of Oregon implemented various continuity plans for planned and unplanned disruptions including a fire in a research facility, a graduate student work stoppage, and large special events like the US Olympic Track and Field Trials. Krista discusses the on-the-fly business continuity planning that took place following the active shooter incident at Umpqua Community College. Participants will take away lessons learned from the application of business continuity plans for a variety of incidents.
200 year old gun manufacturer Remington files bankruptcy VLOG
 
04:20
DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE Trump’s election and debt from buyout hobble arms company Effort hindered as investors shy from investing in weapons JPMorgan's Amoroso Says 'Trade Rhetoric' Is Real JPMorgan's Amoroso Says Trade Rhetoric Is a Headwind for Equities Near-Term Remington Outdoor Co., the 200-year-old maker of rifles, handguns and bullets controlled by Cerberus Capital Management, filed for bankruptcy, after the election of a “true friend” to the White House ironically wound up stifling sales. The chapter 11 filing in Delaware bankruptcy court lists estimated liabilities of $100 million to $500 million. Remington, which makes weapons for military, law enforcement, and hunting customers, disclosed plans for the bankruptcy on Feb. 12. A deal had alreadybeen negotiated with lenders that would cut debt by about $700 million and inject $145 million of new capital into the Madison, North Carolina-based company. The filing came after a weekend of marches across the U.S. seeking tighter laws to fight gun violence. It allows Remington to keep operating, and the deal with lenders is subject to court approval. Remington’s fortunes took a hit after the election of Donald Trump, a self-proclaimed “true friend” of the gun industry. Gun enthusiasts traditionally stock up on firearms at times when political winds suggest tighter gun control lies ahead. But Hillary Clinton’s defeat erased those fears, leaving retailers stuffed with unsold inventory. Several Setbacks Other setbacks have included an aborted public offering in 2011 and an investor revolt after one of its rifles was used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. The troubles have been a blow to Cerberus, owned by private-equity billionaire Stephen Feinberg, who has been a prominent Trump supporter. New York-based Cerberus acquired Remington in 2007 and saddled it with almost $1 billion in debt.  After the Sandy Hook shooting, Cerberus announced it would sell the company, as its own agitated investors demanded an exit, but it failed to find a buyer. Concerns about rising gun violence, mass shootings and accidents have prompted litigation, some of it including Remington. In 2016, the Massachusetts attorney general sought information from the company on complaints and recalls, citing an investigation into its compliance with state laws and regulations on gun safety. Remington has also been sued by individuals claiming some guns are defective, and voluntarily recalled some of its models. Industry Pressure The industry came under added pressure in February when a gunman using an AR-15 assault rifle was used in the Stoneman High School mass murder in Parkland, Florida, just days after Remington announced plans for a pre-arranged bankruptcy. That weapon was a Smith & Wesson, made by a unit of American Outdoor Brands Corp. Remington, which began with a hand-built rifle in 1816, went on to supply more than half the ammunition used by U.S. and its allies in World War I and World War II, according to its website. It currently employs 3,500 people and is among the largest American manufacturers of ammunition and firearms.  More than 11 million firearms were manufactured in the U.S. in 2016, up from fewer than four million a decade ago, according to data from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
