In addition to describing individual agents and their countermeasures, this handbook includes detailed procedures for performing triage and patient decontamination, including handling exposed military working dogs. The handbook serves as a guide for conventional forward-deployed medical elements providing health service support to chemical and biological casualties. This handbook will primarily appeal to military physicians, especially those deployed in ground based operations. Throughout the world, nationas and terrorists are attemtping to produce, or have already produced, agents of chemical and biological warfare and the means to employ them. These areas and enviornments may also be affected by these elements and this resource may be helpful to hospital teams and Emergency Room (ER) staffs that are impacted from these casualties in local communities, near or a distance from an actual battlefield, resulting from an increase in terrorist groups and government access to these harmful toxins. Meidcal school students, especially those tasked to internships at emergency rooms in large cities or foreign deployments may be interested in this volume.

Learn how to develop solutions to handle disasters both large and small. Real-world scenarios illustrate the importance of disaster response (DR) planning. IT Disaster Response takes a different approach to IT disaster response plans. Rather than focusing on details such as what hardware you should buy or what software you need to have in place, the book focuses on the management of a disaster and various management and communication tools you can use before and during a disaster. This book examines disasters in general—a compilation of lessons the author learned over the course of years working in IT, reviewing plane crashes, and his experiences as a cave rescuer and cave rescue instructor. Although at first it may seem that none of these are really related, the truth is they all have elements in common. In each case, the unexpected has happened. Just as not all plane crashes are deadly, not all IT mishaps have terrible consequences. With the proper training and approach, many problems can either be avoided in the first place or better handled if they do arise. The book contains practical guidance on: How to think about a disaster both before it happens and while it’s happening How to apply management skills used in other fields during disasters How to get everyone on board when it comes to planning for and handling disasters How to better deal with smaller, more manageable—and more frequently occurring—disasters What you’ll learn Discover the difference between a DR solution and a DR plan Define a disaster — it’s not always of the scale of a fire burning down the building. See when to actually implement your DR plan Who This Book Is For IT professionals in charge of developing their company’s disaster recovery plan who also need to raise issues to the required C-level people to make sure they have a viable plan.

Emergencies and disaster situations are harsh testing grounds for the logistical and organisational capacity of affected countries, and this is especially true in the health sector. The acquisition, storage, mobilisation and distribution of drugs and pharmaceutical supplies to the victims of a disaster require efficient handling and use of resources. This publication provides guidelines for authorities and organisations for the management of planning for disasters, and underlines the fact that each step in the supply chain should be seen as a critical and interrelated link. The techniques and procedures proposed are multi-sectoral in nature and can be used in any type of emergency operation.

While history has identified a need for improved coordination during emergencies, it has also demonstrated that community volunteers positively impact their neighborhoods during times of crisis. Laying out the rationale and process by which emergency managers, community leaders, and non-governmental aid organizations can effectively collaborate and integrate citizen response, Spontaneous Community Volunteers in Disasters explains how to engage, train, and utilize spontaneous unaffiliated community volunteers (SUCV). The book prepares leaders to integrate local volunteers into any scale emergency response. Protocols and flexible management solutions are outlined to ensure safe and effective planning and execution. Work templates provided can be modified to suit the needs of any community. This accessible manual provides the tools to: Assess your agency’s role, tasks, and challenges to meet community needs in a disaster Build a plan for managing SUCVs by developing internal and external protocols Develop effective spot screening and selection methods Engage community members in information-sharing and outreach campaigns Consider policies and procedures that create relevant roles for volunteers and community groups to build a resilient team for disaster recovery Provide National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant answers to address common barriers to using SUCVs Combining field experience and psychosocial research, the book makes a strong case as to why community involvement in disaster response will have a positive impact on a community’s resilient recovery. Praise for Spontaneous Community Volunteers in Disasters: All emergency management coordinators can benefit from this book. —Howard Butt, New Jersey State Police, State CERT Coordinator Lisa Orloff has done an excellent job in both identifying a significant opportunity in emergency response and meticulously outlining how that opportunity can best be leveraged. —Dr. Michael Chumer, New Jersey Institute of Technology The Alliance for Nonprofit Management has nominated the book for the Terry McAdam Award. This award is bestowed upon the Committee's choice for the most inspirational and useful new book published for the nonprofit sector.
