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.

This video shows you that In 1968, A U.S Navy Attack Submarine Exploded Underwater, No One Knows Why? The conspiracy theory is that the Scorpion was somehow caught up in some kind of Cold War skirmish, and that the Soviet flotilla had sunk the sub. An unusually high number of submarines were sunk in 1968, including the Israeli submarine Dakar, the French submarine Minerve, and the Soviet submarine K-129. According to conspiracy theorists, the Cold War had briefly turned hot under the waves, leading to the loss of several submarines. Unfortunately, there is no actual proof, nor an explanation for why a Soviet task force with only two combatants could manage to kill the relatively advanced Scorpion. In May 1968, a U.S. nuclear-powered attack submarine was sent on a secret mission to spy on the Soviet navy. Seven days later, with the families of the crew waiting dockside for the USS Scorpion to return from a three-month patrol, the U.S. Navy realized that the submarine was missing. Scorpion had been the victim of a mysterious accident, the nature of which is debated to this day. The USS Scorpion was a Skipjack-class nuclear attack submarine. It was one of the first American submarines with a teardrop-shaped hull, as opposed to the blockier hull of World War II submarines and their descendants. It was laid down in August 1958 and commissioned into service in July 1960. The Skipjacks were smaller than nuclear submarines today, with a displacement of 3,075 tons and measuring just 252-feet long by 31-feet wide. They had a crew of ninety-nine, including twelve officers and eighty-seven enlisted men. The class was the first to use the Westinghouse S5W nuclear reactor, which gave the submarine a top speed of fifteen knots surfaced and thirty-three knots submerged. The primary armament for the Skipjack class was the Mk-37 homing torpedo. The Mk-37 had an active homing sonar, a range of ten thousand yards with a speed of twenty-six knots, and a warhead packed with 330 pounds of HBX-3 explosive. Scorpion was only eight years old at the time of its loss, relatively new by modern standards. Still, complaints from the crew that the sub was already showing its age were rampant. According to a 1998 article in the U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings, Scorpion had 109 unfulfilled work orders during its last deployment. It had “chronic problems” with its hydraulics, its emergency blow system didn’t work and emergency seawater shutoff valves had not yet been decentralized. At the start of its final patrol, 1,500 gallons of oil leaked from its conning tower as it left Hampton Roads. Two months before its loss, Scorpion’s captain, Cdr. Francis Atwood Slattery, had drafted an emergency work request for the hull, which he claimed “was in a very poor state of preservation.” He also expressed concern about leaking valves that caused the submarine to be restricted to a dive depth of just three hundred feet—less than half of the Skipjack’s test depth. Many had taken to calling the submarine the USS Scrapiron. in the navy, join navy, joining the navy, lake champlain, lake champlain ny, lake champlain vermont, list of us navy ships, navy, navy academy, navy boat, navy news, navy recruiter, navy ship, navy ships, new us navy ships, ships of the us navy, the navy, the us navy, us navy, us navy news, us navy ship, us navy ships, us navy ships list, us shipping Source: https://goo.gl/PA6bXR By: Kyle Mizokami ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

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.

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.

Operation Disaster Relief is an outreach program of Be the Star You Are!® charity. When disaster strikes anywhere in the US, volunteers go into action to collect and distribute uplifting and inspirational books, videos, music, and other resources to the victims and families to help them rebuild their confidence and lives. Sometimes these resources are a welcome break from the tragic moments, other resources are educational and helpful. The program started on September 11, 2001 when Be the Star You Are!® was one of the first agencies to get resources to NYC and Washington DC after the terrorist attacks. Since then, hundreds of thousands of dollars in new books have been donated to victims of hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, fires, and explosions. Be the Star You Are!® believes that books offer the opportunity to rebuild a life worth living.

You have 60 days to register with Federal Emergency Management Agency if you need help recovering from Hurricane Harvey. The FEMA disaster center opened today at 911 Navigation Circle in Rockport Texas. They will be open from 7:30 am till 6:00 PM. However, FEMA officials say the fastest and quickest way to register is online at disasterassistance.gov. And if you don't have insurance and if your home suffered weather damage, FEMA officials say you still can register and still get help. William C. Lindsey, who is a media specialist with the agency, says," The important thing to remember is that when a FEMA representative comes to your house and wants to inspect your home, they will be wearing a FEMA shirt and have a FEMA badge." Lindsey says you must verify they are working for FEMA so you don't fall victim to any scammers. If the person is not a confirmed FEMA worker, you need to dial 911 and talk to police.

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.

This month, two disastrous hurricanes wrecked parts of the Southern United States, leading to dozens of casualties and billions in damages. As these communities work to get back on their feet, hospitals and health systems are doing their best to maintain high-quality patient care. To help, many organizations are donating funds – Premier and its employees included. While monetary relief is crucial, there’s more to disaster planning and recovery than writing a check. There’s real work that needs to be done for people across our communities. Disaster response efforts largely go unsung. But when done well, preparations can minimize the devastation. Premier works with its members, suppliers and employees to ensure that lives can be saved even in the face of challenging circumstances.

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.

06-06-2011- Low Level Emergency - Fort Calhoun Station - OPPD's Fort Calhoun Station, a 484 MW nuclear power plant, is located on the west bank of the Missouri River about 19 miles north of Omaha. Planning for the facility, which began commercial production of electricity in 1973, commenced in 1966, based on studies showing a nuclear plant would be a safe, reliable and environmentally clean means of producing electricity. Experience to date support those early findings. Safety remains the number one priority in operating the plant today. http://www.oppd.com/AboutUs/22_002696 The Omaha Public Power District on Monday declared a low-level emergency at its Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station due to rising Missouri River waters. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects the river level elevation at the plant site is expected to reach 1,004 feet above mean sea level later this week, and is expected to remain above that level for more than one month. OPPD notified the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and emergency management agencies in Nebraska and Iowa of the declaration. Such a "Notification of Unusual Event" is the least-serious of four emergency classifications that are standard in the U.S. nuclear industry, OPPD said in a news release. Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station will not move out of this emergency classification until it is confident the water will remain below the 1,004-foot level, OPPD said. Fort Calhoun has been in safe shutdown mode since early April for refueling the plant, and remains in that condition. In addition to the existing flood-protection at the plant, OPPD employees and contractors have built earth berms and sandbagged around the switchyards and additional buildings on site. They also are filling water-filled berms around the plant and other major buildings on site, have staged additional diesel fuel inside the protected area and are building additional overhead power lines to provide another option for power for the plant's administration building, training center and one of its warehouses. rsoe : FL-20110607-31043-USA Twitter -Digg - Buzz - Fark - Reddit - CNN-ireporter, BBC, Christianna, Delicious, Stumbleupon, Google, vlog http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://nuclearstreet.com/resized-image.ashx/

ABC This Week (Hurricane Irene) - August 28, 2011. (Transcript Below) TAPPER: As we've been telling you, New Jersey is getting hit hard by the storm right now. New Jersey's governor, Chris Christie, is monitoring the situation from the Regional Operations Intelligence Center in Ewing, New Jersey. He joins us right now. Governor Christie, thanks for coming onto the show. CHRISTIE: Thanks for having me, Jake. TAPPER: So, Governor, the hurricane made landfall in New Jersey shortly before 6:00 this morning. Your state's just beginning to weather the storm. What are the early reports telling you? CHRISTIE: Early reports are very difficult, Jake. We have over half-a-million people that are now without power. We have 15,000 people in 45 shelters across the state; 250 roads are closed; and we are going to look at a record flooding situation here, both at the shore and inland. And so my message to the people of New Jersey is, the eye of the storm is still over the state. We are far from out of the woods on the storm itself. And I urge people to stay inside their homes. The one report we have this morning of a woman who's missing is someone who went out into their car, drove, got into the water, got out of her car, and was swept away in the water and is still missing. So, please, stay in your homes until the storm has completely left New Jersey. Then we'll be able to get through this together in the aftermath, but I need people to stay at home. TAPPER: What is your biggest concern right now? What kept you last night? CHRISTIE: Flooding, Jake, because we had the wettest August on record in parts of New Jersey before this storm. Already, we've had six to eight inches of rain dumped on south Jersey, and the rain is continuing throughout the state. And so what I'm really worried about is flooding at this point and having to evacuate even more people than the 15,000 we've already had to evacuate and shelter. So in the short term, in the next couple of days, my big concern is the inland flooding and the shore flooding and how we're going to deal with folks who maybe have to be evacuated from their homes and need to be sheltered. TAPPER: Is there anything that the state of New Jersey needs from the federal government that you're not getting? CHRISTIE: Not at this point, Jake. We have FEMA representatives here at the -- at the Regional Operations and Intelligence Center, been working with us. I'm going to be calling Secretary Napolitano in an hour or two to make a further request of additional needs. But so far, FEMA has been very responsive. I spoke to Secretary Napolitano in the last 24 hours. She's offered to do whatever she needs to do to help us out here in New Jersey. She knows how hard we're going to be hit. So right now, the cooperation between New Jersey and FEMA has been great, and I'm going to be calling Secretary Napolitano shortly to ask for some more help. TAPPER: I know you were very concerned about the -- at the time, it was 600 seniors in these Atlantic City high rises who were not leaving. What can you tell us about efforts to protect them? CHRISTIE: Well, our last-ditch efforts that I referenced yesterday afternoon got another 100 or so to leave and to evacuate. So now we're dealing with about 500 seniors who refuse to evacuate. And as soon as it's safe to travel there, I know county OEM, Office of Emergency Management, Atlantic County is already checking on these folks to make sure they're OK. They lost power in a number of the buildings as early as 10 o'clock last night. So the county officials in Atlantic County are going to check on those folks. And as soon as we have some reports, we'll be able to share them with the public. TAPPER: Why do people not leave their homes at times like this? CHRISTIE: You know, I think it's a combination of things. You know, Jake, New Jerseyans are especially tough, kind of cynical, hard-edged folks, and they think the "cry wolf" syndrome, you know, it's all over TV, but it's never as bad as they're telling you it will be, that's one of the reasons. Another reason is that people are very scared, they want to protect their property. And thirdly, especially with the elderly, you know, we had one 92-year-old woman say to us yesterday, "I'm 92 years old. If I die, this is where I want to die." And so I think it's a combination of all those things that make people not heed the warnings. But the good news is that we evaluated over a million people from the Jersey shore in 24 hours without incident. And if those people had stayed at the Jersey shore, I think we'd be talking about significant loss of life. And now, hopefully, we're not going to be talking about that. TAPPER: All right. Governor Chris Christie, thanks for joining us. Stay safe. CHRISTIE: Jake, thank you very much for having me.

In early April, a public assessment was held to identify issues with a historically hazardous stretch of West St. in Rutland, between Wales St. and Pine St. The assessment was inspired by the USDOT’s mayoral challenge. US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx challenged mayors throughout the country to make streets safer for bicyclists and pedestrians. Rutland is the first attempt at tackling this challenge, but we hope other areas throughout Vermont will follow in Rutland’s footsteps. Watch the video to learn more.

About This Video: Nuclear Free Future host Margaret Harrington speaks with Fairewinds Founding Director Maggie Gundersen, Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen, Media Producer Nathaniel White-Joyal, and Administrator Samantha Donalds about the decommissioning of Vermont Yankee. Fairewinds Team on Nuclear Free Future with Margaret Harrington Full upload and transcript available here http://tinyurl.com/lz6q4a3 I'm so glad that you can be here to discuss our topic, which is decommissioning Entergy Vermont Nuclear -- Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant. And let's start from the top. Who wants to jump in on the momentous decision that Entergy made on August 26th? MG: On August 26th, Entergy announced that at the end of this fuel cycle in 2014, they're going to shut down the plant permanently. MH: So when is the end of the fuel cycle? AG: October or November of 2014. So it's still a year away -- a year plus a little bit away. They had to announce because they have to buy fuel. And if they weren't buying fuel, their employees would know immediately that something is wrong and so when they made the decision not to buy fuel, they had to notify the employees, at which point they had to notify the public. MH: And we the public heard that on August 26th. And the reasons given were not about the safety of the plant or about the many things that we've been talking about on this conversation for the past several years. But what was the main reason? AG: Well, Entergy's position is that the market didn't justify keeping the plant running. You know, they tried to sell power to Vermont back in 2012 at 6-1/2 cents a kilowatt. The market was only at 4 cents so the Vermont utilities dug in and said, we're not buying from you. So had the Vermont utilities bought from Vermont Yankee, they might have continued to run because effectively, Vermonters were subsidizing Vermont Yankee. But anyway, we got cheaper power by almost 2 cents, and then the combination of Fukushima Daiichi costs to fix it up and it's a stand-alone old plant and they had to fix a condenser. They were looking at something on the order of a quarter of a billion in plant improvements. So they decided to pull the plug instead. MH: And what were they waiting for, Arnie? AG: In my opinion, just a couple of weeks before that, the federal courts ruled in their favor and basically said that the federal law preempts the Vermont law as far as nuclear safety issues go. I think they wanted that decision. If they had canceled the plant, likely the decision never would have been made. I think their minds were made up before that federal decision was ever made, and I think that they wanted it in hand so that when Vermont starts to argue about the decommissioning of the plant, they'll be able to say hey, look, the federal government disagrees with you. MH: That's an interesting element in this discussion because most viewers, including myself, wouldn't know about this or wouldn't put it together such as that it's a strategy for the public, is it not, to appeal to the credibility of Vermont Yankee? AG: Yeah, I think they are going to claim that it was strictly market forces and that Vermonters had nothing to do with it, and that's part of the strategy, too, is to belittle the efforts of Vermonters and the legislature and the activists. And then separately, though, they wanted that piece of ammo in their back pocket about the federal law. That was an important piece in their strategy about how to rein in Vermont and how to prevent us from down the road making other demands on them. MG: And I think it's one more layer on that. I think that there was an industry strategy on the nuclear industry heavily supported Vermont Yankee in its fight against Vermont. And there were all kinds of lobbying efforts and the same attorneys that the whole industry uses. So I think that they wanted to put that out there so the industry could pushback in any other state that tries to intervene, because there's so many aging nuclear plants out there, and that many of them are leaking, many of them don't have adequate emergency evacuation plans -- on and on and on. And so I think they wanted to make sure that it becomes an issue only between them and the NRC because they have co-opted the NRC. The NRC does not regulate. It's beholden to the industry. MH: Exactly. And let's emphasize for our viewers again the uniqueness of Vermont's position; that the legislature voted to shut down Vermont Yankee. And is this unique in the United States for Vermont to have done that? AG: Yeah, we have to remember it wasn't a narrow victory. It was 26 to 4, including the leading Republican Randy Brock said that if antinuclear activists had infiltrated Vermont Yankee's management, they couldn't have screwed it up any worse than Entergy did all by themselves (...)
