This paper will provide information on how the local, state, and federal government correlate with each other concerning major disaster evacuations within the United States. The first lines of disaster response are the state and local governments. They have the fire, police, and EMS services within or near the area and are able to respond to a disaster in a timely manner. In some instances the state and local governments may become overwhelmed and unable to control the resulting damages of the major disaster. In many cases the emergency responders may become victims themselves and citizens can no longer be evacuated and receive care in a timely manner.
Privacy concerns are raised if access to data is not secure and controlled during a natural disaster. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the natural disaster case scenario of a small town on the Gulf Coast that was struck by a hurricane. Discussed is a detailed management plan for the security and privacy of patient health information. Also discussed is the implementation and training staff of the management plan and code of conduct. Management Plan and Responding to the Situation Natural disasters can unexpectedly occur at any time, and it is crucial organizations have a disaster plan in place to protect patient health information.
Communication dynamics differ between a disaster, trauma and crisis because they are all different situations. Some are more extreme than others. The coping strategies are different and the plan of actions are different. For example, during a natural disaster the hospital should already have a plan in action that they can rely on. The community can work together to cope afterward.
Future trend in crisis intervention Megan Countryman BSHS/471 July 7th 2014 Joseph Wilner Future trend in crisis intervention Crisis intervention will change in the future as more resources are discovered to help people. One of the most important things that will affect people forever is natural disasters. There are current interventions that will improve in the future for people who experience these terrible natural disasters. Natural disasters arrive quickly and leave quickly but the communities they affect are left with long and difficult damages. The damages that a natural disaster causes can be physical, monetary, family structure, and mental injuries that will not leave with the natural disaster.
It also protects the trade and travel of all things leaving and coming into the U.S. Border security is also in charge of breaching international criminal and terrorist organizations. The next department is preparedness, response, and recovery. This department is effective during a terrorist attack or natural disaster. The preparedness, response, and recovery team work and fund other programs in an effort to respond to and help restore communities in devastating events. This department has been major in tragic situations like the earthquake in Haiti and the BP oil spill.
By displaying this collection of extensive research, the author hopes to communicate to the reader that the efforts of Halliburton are deleterious in a multitude of ways, and that its contract with the military needs to be stopped. Granted, with the help from Halliburton, the military enjoys some luxury of not having to directly provide essential needs for the soldiers. However, this book outlines the management corruption and overall excessive costs of contracting with Halliburton. Also in his book, Pratap Chatterjee discusses the relevance of the Global War on Terror and how it interrelates with the operations of Halliburton. In the last 20 years, Halliburton has been heavily involved in helping the military.
Federal, state, and local governments pre-plan and prepare for disasters hoping to be better prepared when events like tornados, hurricanes, or wildfires take place. In the United States, private sectors and states rely greatly on assistance from the federal government. This is because the federal government has better means to have funds readily available, rather than states that cannot afford the costly amounts that a natural disaster can cause. To better understand the role that the federal government plays in funding disaster planning and relief efforts, it is good to know the history behind why they are responsible. During the years 1803 and 1950, Congress had to pass a separate law in order to provide Federal funds to each disaster that occurred.
Name at least one country, where the US brought peace, democracy and stability? It is difficult to fight on command, if you don’t believe in your cause. Increasing suicide numbers in US the Army serves as an alarming factor, that something isn’t right, PTSD syndrome, behavioral problems…. Beautiful ideas like freedom, peace, democracy, our cause is right seems so distant and cold compared to the cruel present of nowadays. Just as wars shouldn’t be, so the Soldiers can become forgotten and lost to present and future.
Homeland Security Evolved Prior to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 the field of homeland security did not exist. The attacks of 9/11 brought the issue of terrorism to the forefront in the political and public light. The intelligence community struggled to collect information both internally and externally due to bureaucratic disagreements. Since the Department of Homeland Security was created a lot of developments have took place. Over the years the Department of Homeland Security has strengthened the homeland security enterprise in order to better defend against progressive terrorist threats.
Since this time, the Department of Homeland Security has done a great job in protecting this nation against terrorism through transit security and border patrol and also serving its purpose in regulating immigration, cyber security and providing aid to victims of natural disasters. I do believe, however, this department is better suited to prevent domestic terrorism rather than foreign terrorism. I believe Homeland Security is more than capable of preventing any form of domestic terrorism. The Department of Homeland Security is definitely beneficial to America’s safety but I do not believe it is prepared for another 9/11. Terrorist are very smart and very skilled when it comes to planning mass amounts of chaos and loss of life.
