Emergency Management and Communications Interoperability Research Proposal

… Emergency Management and Communications Interoperability

In an emergency situation, it is vitally important to have adequate communication software in place to ensure the speedy response of emergency personnel. Indeed, ideally, such systems would be free from failure and allow rescue workers to save the maximum amount of lives. The reality is however rather less than ideal, as demonstrated by the devastation of September 11, 2001 and Hurricane Katrina. In order to remedy the situation, interoperability issues need to be addressed.

The other side of the coin is however, would such attention adversely affect local jurisdictions in terms of cost and time investments? Conversely, the research might also ask - how much importance in terms of funding can be placed upon a human life? The dichotomy…. [read more]


Emergency Occurring Is Inevitable. Although Prevention Serves Term Paper

… ¶ … emergency occurring is inevitable. Although prevention serves an important role in minimizing the severity of the emergencies that are experienced, prevention is not a guarantee emergencies won't be severe. For this reason, emergency management has been the topic of a great deal of debate in recent years. The emergency response to Hurricane Andrew and more recently Hurricane Katrina, have exposed many problems with the emergency response system in America ("Katrina Compounded"). These problems greatly hindered the response effort and thousands of American citizens suffered greatly in the aftermath of the aforementioned natural disasters. The purpose of this discussion is to analyze some of the lessons learned and changes implemented in the field of emergency management as a result of the impact of Hurricane…. [read more]


Falls the Issue of Accidental Essay

… (2007) note that the financial implications for the hospitals themselves in terms of additional costs and addition bed-days per involved patient adds up to a significant amount, with the National Health Service of Great Britain having to settle claims on the order of GBP 7.7 million, the equivalent of $12.2 million (p177). Over half of these costs were attributed to hip and pelvic fractures alone, suggesting that, in the population surveyed in Great Britain, a pattern can begin to emerge, related to the overhwhelming incidence of such accidental falls involving elderly patients. These statistics are borne out by reporting on the subject by the CDC in America. The CDC reports that, in 2009, there were 2.2 million emergency room visits required by older adults in….

Domestic Violence and Hispanic Women Research Paper

… Evidence-Based Practice Protocol: Domestic Violence and Hispanic Women

Evidence-based Practice

Domestic violence (DV) accounts for about 30% of all acute injuries to women treated in emergency departments, as it currently constitutes a critical public health concern, not only in the United States (U.S.), but worldwide. Some studies indicate that Hispanic women are more likely to be injured during intimate partner violence incidents than non-Hispanic women, with scholars agreeing that DV among Latinos must be addressed as it constitutes a serious problem among the Latino growing population.

Research reveals that utilizing emergency room protocols to identify and treat victims of domestic violence increases the identification of victims by medical practitioners. Although a high percentage of female victims of domestic violence visit emergency rooms for treatment, low…. [read more]


Policy Democracy and Public Administration Term Paper

… The majority of the time, this system works quite well and makes a great contribution to the public's overall health program. However, these are also all prime areas for the communication of the entire system to potentially breakdown. "But, we as a nation lack a formal assessment process for the national, state and local public health systems and we also do not have a National Data System to describe the infrastructure at the state and local levels." (National Conference of State Legislatures)

To add another layer for potential intersystem bickering, adding a national communication capability would be very expensive to implement even though the system is desperately needed. New and prior federal support for broad public health infrastructure could allow more local communities to address…. [read more]

Jet Blue Airways Theoretical Framework Essay

… Several passengers were left waiting in the flight while many more were left behind at the John F. Kennedy Airport for hours. Around 1200 flights were cancelled and the company suffered a major loss of $20 million.

Human Factors Engineering Documented Evidence Term Paper

… Human Factors Engineering

Documented evidence shows that human error contributes at least seventy percent of commercial aircraft hull-loss accidents. Even as being linked with flight operations, human error has turned into a major issue in air traffic management and maintenance practices. At Boeing, professionals on human factors work with pilots, mechanics and engineers to employ the most up-to-date knowledge regarding the connection between the condition of commercial airplanes and human performance. This enables operators to increase efficiency and enhance safety in their every day operations.

The expression "human factors" has progressively become more popular because commercial aviation businesses have become fully cognizant that human error, instead of mechanical breakdown, causes a majority of aviation incidents and accidents. Human factors, if taken in a narrow manner,…. [read more]


Piracy Maritime Terrorism Term Paper

… Maritime Piracy and Terrorism in the Atlantic and Caribbean Oceans - a Methodology to Counteract

More than six years after the attacks of September 11th, 2001 showed the United States to be a nation deeply vulnerable to the type of attacks which are favored by terrorist organizations, the security policies and approaches to protecting the American people and America's friends and interests remain deeply impeachable. Security responses relating to the combat of foreign wars, the bureaucratic consolidation of American security agencies, the enhancement of surveillance freedoms to be used against the American people and the selling of America's port security to a state-run firm in the United Arab Emirates are all suggestive of a government which has not taken the proper steps to address the….

Crisis Incidents the Last Decade Term Paper

… Leaders are prone to attend to those who are most active and vocal in their work. This may include shareholders and stakeholders. This may create a communication gap and create a void of perspectives (Groom and Fritz, 2011).

If Ford had taken heed of its customers earlier or listened to their risk management team before, a contingency plan would have been created. This wouldn't have a crisis buildup. Firestone neglected the red flags as insignificant (Groom and Fritz, 2011).

The leaders should gather opinions from all segments of their departments. This includes top to lower hierarchy. Leaders should influence their management to let the subordinate's voice their concerns and work accordingly. Crisis experts examine thoroughly with a strict eye and reflect on the data collected.….

Rise in occurrences of terrorism

It was back in 1979 when Islamic Revolution was complete and since then Iran has grown consistently to be among those countries that actively support terrorism and terrorist cells across the world. Tehran is one the major states in Iran that is reputed to have equipped, educated, monetarily supported, stimulated, prepared, and otherwise encouraged a large number of terrorist groups through the years. Iran has been known to support not just terrorist cells in the Persian Gulf region, but have also been known to support additional terrorist cells and groups in the regions of Lebanon, Palestine, Bosnia and Philippines amongst other places. This encouragement and backup has sustained to stay strong in recent times as well: the U.S. administration…. [read more]


Shipping Chartering Term Paper

… Future of Shipping

The shipping industry has a long history, but the nature of the business changes over that history. It has been changing in recent years because of the pressures for change caused by internationalization, globalization, technological advances, economic shifts in different parts of the world, and so on. Where the tradition has been for companies to sail their own ships, carrying cargo for a fee, more and more companies are finding different ways to accomplish the same business, such as by chartering vessels for the job at hand, or having other companies handle the procedures as a form of third-party management, or some other approach to cut costs, reduce risk, and yet increase business all at the same time. The changes in the…. [read more]

2. Self-defense (Falklands)

Self-defense is one of the most contentious spheres of the exercise of force, and many instances abound which possibly depict a predicament with finding what are the conventions, and what about enforcing them. Since it prohibits the exercise of force, the U.N deed certainly identifies two scenarios wherein the application of force is allowed. International Law has recognized years ago that each state possesses the prerogative to protect itself, if required through force. This prerogative of self-defense is established in the U.N. charter: Article 51 states that the charter in no manner damages the "inbuilt" privilege of self-protection during an organized assault. The…. [read more]


Oil Spill Response Plan Research Paper

… One drawback of the massive response to this disaster is a somewhat greater difficulty in organizing grassroots and volunteer efforts to help in the clean-up, as the response is being so closely monitored by BP and its contractors, so the next best thing would be to ensure that local workers are given the chance for employment, rather than allowing BP to bring in outside contractors and employees. Not only will this give residents the opportunity to participate in the protection and restoration of their own civic community, but it will help tide over many of those who would lose income until their claims could processed and paid by BP.

Because the majority of the costs for the clean-up will be born by a combination of…. [read more]
