It is expected that department's financial resources will be reduced.

This means that the department will be forced to make a series of modifications regarding the allocation of financial resources. The department's financial situation must be assessed in order to find out which areas require the most financial resources, which areas can function with lower levels of financial resources, and how the department's money can be reallocated.

The most important aspect that must be addressed by the department is represented by communication. In order to improve efficiency of the department's activity, it is recommended to develop and implement a strategy regarding communication that helps facilitate the communication flow within the department.

The decision-making process should also be modified. The decisions must be taken by each unit, instead of waiting for top managers to take decisions that affects these units. This strategy is intended to increase the efficiency of the activity…… [Read More]

Lessons Learned for Nightclub Fires

In some ways the historical events that accompanied "The Station" fire were precedent setting. In other ways, however, these historical events were sadly a little too familiar. A perfect example of this sort of dichotomy is found in the trigger to this fire. According to a report compiled by Robert Duvall (2006) regarding this particular fire and nightclub fires in general, the conflagration at The Station "resulted from a form of ignition not often seen when comparing other fires in assembly occupancies: pyrotechnics" (p. 22). In this regard, the fire at The Station was unique when compared to the other fires detailed for their historical events in Duvall's document. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has very specific standards and requirements for the utilization of pyrotechnics in "Existing Assembly Occupancies" (Duval, 2006, p. 22). Interestingly enough, even a cursory examination of those standards introduces the…… [Read More]

During a flu epidemic, up to 20% of Americans are infected by the virus. Of this figure, approximately 36 000 people might die of the infection. It is reported that over 200 000 of those infected are infected in various hospital facilities across the country. Indeed, few viruses have inflicted as much damage and endured as the influenza virus. Respiratory ailments blamed on influenza are documented in records that trace the infection back to Greece and Rome of the ancient world.

"Unlike IP fragmentation (which can be done by intermediate devices), IP reassembly can be done only at the final destination. What problems do you see if IP reassembly is attempted in intermediate devices like routers?" [ ]

IP fragmentation is defined as the IP (Internet Protocol) that breaks datagrams into smaller fragment to assist packets passing through links and forming a smaller MTU (maximum transmission unit) than its original size. However, the fragments reassemble themselves when reaching the receiving hosts. After the receiving hosts have received the fragmented IP packet, they have to reassemble the datagram before passing it to the higher layer. In practices, the reassembly happens in the receiving hosts, however, a reassembly may be carried out by the intermediate router. For example, the NAT (network address translation) is designed to reassemble the fragments to the translate data streams.…… [Read More]

Alcohol tobacco and fire arms (A.T.F)

In the federal government, in one way, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is a brand new agency with a new mission, new name and a new place. On the other hand, the status of the agency in the history of United States can be traced back to more than 200 years in a practical way. On January 24, 2003, a new alteration was made in which the ATF was transferred from the Treasury department to the Justice department and its name was somewhat changed with the word "explosives" being added on to make clear one of its major long-standing field of know-how. The 200-year history of the agency, which started receiving the nation's first excise tax on distilled spirits from 1791, was brought to end by the move to Justice.

COPQ or Cost of poor quality are costs related to providing poor quality services or products. There are four categories for COPQ.

Internal failure costs: Costs related to defect found prior to customer receipt of service or product.

External failure costs: Costs related to defects located after customer receipt of service or product.

Appraisal costs: Costs sustained to decide the level of conformance to quality guidelines.

Prevention costs: Costs sustained to maintain appraisal and failure costs to a desired minimum.

The costs are part of cost of quality which is a: "methodology that allows an organization to determine the extent to which its resources are used for activities that prevent poor quality, that appraise the quality of the organization's products or services, and that result from internal and external failures" (ASQ, 2016).…… [Read More]

Injury and Illness Prevention Within the Workplace

Words: 6068 Length: 22 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 11811891

Unlike our predecessors in the mines and mills and factories - and even offices - we today expect our workplaces to be safe. We consider this a birthright - that our employers should design and monitor the workplace in such a way that we are allowed to do our job without any undue risk for ourselves. And yet, of course, this is not a birthright but rather a legal protection that was fought for by workers and workers advocates (including unions) in previous generations. There seems to be little if any natural inclination of even good employers to ensure the safety of their workers, and it is for this reason that government regulations exist to protect workers. This research project examines one very specific example within the contemporary workforce of the ways in which government regulation is sometimes a necessary supplement - or bulwark - to the good intentions of…… [Read More]

The existing statement has some strengths, but also some weaknesses. The existing statement is similar to mine in that it provides a clear definition of the department's functions. However, the standards of performance are less well-defined, for example "quality" is less specific than "the highest ethical standards." The statements about workforce diversity are similarly open-ended, but mine is somewhat more specific.

Both statements provide a strong sense of the Department's role within the community, and both mention the word "serve" specifically. However, my organizational statement is stronger is that it specifies service to the community multiple times, an unequivocal statement about the role of the fire department and the nature of its core stakeholder. The existing statement speaks more of excellence but seldom mentions the community that is to be served, which I find to be an important part of a Fire Department's organizational statement.

Airport Rescue and Firefighting

Approximately half of all aircraft accidents take place when the pilot is bringing the plane to an initial approach, a final approach, and the phases of landing at an airport (Richardson, 2003). Fewer than 31% of airport accidents occur within "200 meters of the centre line of the active runway," Richardson reports, and within "1,500 meters of the runway threshold," which is the Critical Rescue and Fire Fighting Response Area. during the "final climb or initial descent phases." The airport accident that seems to be the most common is a failed take-off, which results from a tire blown out, or a mechanical failure or human error, Richardson explains. Nearly 10% of fatalities are reported to have been caused by a "post-crash fire" or a design error.

The vertical spread of the fire (with temperatures in the $1,000-1500 range) to the stage area resulted in tensile strength of the steel to weaken which caused the roof to fall on the lobby fire wall. The horizontal spread of the fire towards the hallways made steel pieces fall into the prop assembly (Poole & Stambaugh, 1997)

On receiving the emergency call at 9:19 AM, the Strasburg fire department dispatched their team by 9:21 AM. However due to several instances of false alarms in the past, the dispatch center had informed their units that the warning had not been issued by an alarm system. There were not a lot of windows to see the fire from, so the employees in the theater guided the firemen on where to position their engine. On receiving the signal that all the workers had been removed from the building, the firefighters started their hoses.…… [Read More]

There was a stairway in the living room which goes up to a perpendicular second floor hallway. At both ends of the hallway were bedrooms which had the doors closed, but in the middle of the hallway, almost directly across from the stairway was a bathroom with a .61m by 1.98m doorway wide open. To make matters worse, there was a .61m by .43m open window inside the bathroom; which itself was a 2.26m by 2.23m room.

The open bathroom window acted to ventilate the smoke and fire upstairs and into the bathroom, causing higher temperatures and more damage. This can be backed up by the first floor thermocouple temperature graph which clearly demonstrated that the higher in the room the thermocouple, the higher the temperature; as well as the radiant heat flux measurements which indicated that the heat was most intense near the ceiling and most likely traveled up…… [Read More]

Organization An Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Plan

Words: 2314 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 75166359

Organization:

An emergency and disaster preparedness plan and program is an important aspect for an organization due to its significance in promoting workplace safety. The preparedness program helps in enhancing safety in the workplace through inclusion of initiatives for lessening injuries and loss of lives, minimizing insurance claims, lessening property damage, and improving employee morale. While emergencies still happen despite of measures to prevent them, an organization's preparedness plan is critical in preventing the frequency of their occurrences, minimizing injury and property damage, and establishing ways for mitigating their impacts. This is largely because the plan consists of basic procedures to handle emergencies in the workplace. In most cases, organizations use preparedness plans and programs to protect workers from fire incidents and other emergencies.

Since an organization's workplace involves several employees, threats and vulnerabilities are likely to occur both from within and outside the…… [Read More]

Scottsdale Report Applied to Medford

Medford Scottsdale Savings

The Scottsdale Report distinguishes between reactive and proactive fire control (Ford 1997). Medford Fire & Rescue has been trying to move toward proactive control since at least 2007 (Patterson 2007), because not only does proactive control saves lives, it also saves the taxpayer cost. This report describes ways the Department may be able to show those cost savings as revenue, or at least as performance improvement in the bottom line for the City.

The Scottsdale report explains how installing sprinklers could save development costs for the city and private sector before the first new building even went up, by allowing higher density for private residences by 4%; reductions in street width which would save the city paving, maintenance and right-of-way costs; removing a 360-degree access rule for fully sprinklered new commercial development, and mitigating existing fire prevention construction code compliance like door…… [Read More]

Nuclear Power Plant Safety

Engineering countermeasures for radioactive material release

In order to prevent the release of radioactive material into the environment, nuclear power plants are designed to be resistant to a number of natural destructive forces, such as hurricanes, tornados, and earthquakes (U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission [U.S. NRC], 2011a). Within the plant, critical systems are designed to limit and control radioactive material release should they fail. These design considerations include the following (U.S. NRC, 2011a):

fire prevention, detection, and suppression strategies and technologies redundancies, compartmentalization, and automation in critical instrumentation and controls independent protection systems and controls a control room designed so that it can be occupied safely during an accident

Building Security Evaluation: Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport

Just a couple of decades ago, travelers, visitors and virtually anyone else could walk freely through the nation's airports without being challenged at any point, and security considerations were generally restricted to concerns over possible so-called "skyjackings" to Cuba, but even these were rare. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, though, all of this changed in fundamental ways as airports across the country implemented a wide range of security measures intended to prevent a recurrence of these deadly security breaches. Indeed, today, security at the nation's airports has never been stricter, and despite the time and trouble these initiatives have created for air travelers, most passengers today appear to accept these measures in stride as part of the post-September 11 climate. To determine what security measures have been taken in a specific airport facility, this paper provides an evaluation of…… [Read More]

Issues in EMS

EMS single-tier response (STR) or a multi-Tier response (MTR) is optimal for a community?

While EMS are present in every community, each community has different needs and the response of the EMS should be tailored in a community-specific fashion. For example, some communities are far more dependent upon EMS to provide critical services because of their demographics. A large city such as New York will often have more critical incidents due to violence or safety hazards. Also, the logistics of mobility within a city can mean that a single-tiered response (STR) is more appropriate. At the other extreme, a rural area, because of a lack of medical resources such as nearby hospitals, can also benefit from a STR, given that aspects of primary care and treatment may need to be given immediately on the scene due to the lack of available resources at point of care. In terms of a…… [Read More]

Emergency Management and Communications Interoperability

Words: 5291 Length: 18 Pages Document Type: Research Proposal Paper #: 19763548

According to the Congressman, there is a basic lack of interoperability across more than 80% of the United States' first responders. They are not able to communicate with each other, and are therefore also not able to launch adequate rescue operations, particularly during times of large-scale emergencies.

According to the report, it was found that at least 121 of the 343 fire fighters who died could have been saved had adequate communication systems been in place. For this reason, the Congressman said that grants were needed in order to ensure adequate long-term plans to prevent the large-scale loss of life.

Marsh cites the release of communications data on the day of the attacks in order to substantiate these points. In addition to 12,000 pages of oral testimony from firefighters, the 15 hours of radio transmissions show a state of disorientation and panic among rescue professionals and agencies. Inadequate communication systems…… [Read More]

Role and Responsibilities of the Fire Safety Director

Fire safety directors are mandated with the responsibility and task of ensuring the safety of a facility similar to facility managers. This is an important responsibility for fire safety directors because of the need to enhance the well-being and safety of everyone in a facility or building. As part of their role in achieving this goal, fire safety directors are required to carry out a hazard assessment, which primarily focuses on identifying current and probable hazards before their occurrence or before the harm anyone in the building and facility. Once fire safety directors have identified existing and potential hazards, they develop controls or suitable measures for lowering or eliminating the risks through an effective risk management plan for the hazards. Generally, there are several ways through which fire safety directors can prevent and control hazards. Some of these measures include establishing hazard…… [Read More]

Of course, it becomes a very difficult matter to overcome sparse levels of availability when they are encountered (e.g. In the more remote regions of Western Australia).

Taken together, the issues suggest that the impact of availability policy on the use of alcohol may be as heterogeneous as patterns of availability themselves. The reduction of one outlet in an urban area has significantly different meaning and implications than the reduction of one outlet in a rural outpost. Similarly, the reduction of one outlet on one side of town has different meaning and implications than the reduction of one outlet on another. In this regard, Heather and Stockwell emphasize that, "The outlet in the rural outpost may be the only one for 300 miles. The bar closed at the end of the street may be frequented by most of the neighbourhood, the bar across town rarely used" (218).

How Good Government Works and Functions

Words: 1249 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 74652947

Introduction
Most citizens rely on local governments to provide primary and secondary education, police protection, recreation facilities, transport, infrastructure, public sanitation and evolving opportunities. Therefore, a good local government should ensure optimum supply of public goods. Public goods are goods with benefits that are nonrival and nonexclusive in consumption. Such goods are financed by taxes levied on local residents. This paper will analyze the allocation of public goods and services in the County of Waukesha, Wisconsin from 2016 to 2018.
Goals and Priorities of Waukesha County

Had the emergency been declared at this time and the descent started, the plane could have landed about 3 to 5 minutes earlier than it had landed at Cincinnati. Although it is not possible to determine whether the shortened flight time would have delayed or prevented the flash-fire, the decreased exposure time of the passengers to the toxic environment in the cabin would have enhanced their ability to escape after the cabin doors and over-wing exit windows were opened.

The Task Force Report suggested that both of these crime deterring institution work together rather than against one another (Craighead, 2003).

The primary difference between public and private security are the roles of the policing personnel. For public security the purpose is to protect the public, be it property, people, or crimes against property or people. Private security personnel's role is slightly different in that they protect the organization or property rights where assigned. These are primarily privately owned by the property or individual and may differ from public policy and procedure (Craighead, 2003).

Factors affecting the Growth of Private Security

Analysis & Assessment of Main Management Skills of Security Managers

The role of security managers and their progression to Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) in their careers is often delineated by a very broad base of experiences, expertise, skills and the continual development of management and leadership skills. The intent of this analysis and assessment is to define the most critically important management skills for security managers, including those most critical to their setting a solid foundation for attaining a senior management as a CISO in an enterprise (Whitten, 2008). What most differentiates those who progress in their careers as security managers to CISOs is the ability to interpret situations, conditions, relative levels of risk while continually learning new techniques, technologies and concepts pertaining to security and leadership.

movies influence us? Do they have the power to alter our perception of reality as Plato suggested? Do movies and television provide us with truth or illusion?

Remarkable advancements in transportation and mass communication in the last half-century have given rise to a true "global village" or "mass society." People everywhere have access to information about all that happens anywhere in the world. Mass media serves to provide us with a torrent of facts whilst simultaneously aiding us in organizing it (Sylwester). These channels of information take advantage of areas of powerful emotional stimulation and help mold one's views and knowledge -- as with society's swift media-powered growth in terrorism-related knowledge. Bin Laden was earlier an unimportant figure. Further, the 9/11 attack's many thousand fatalities were obscure office-goers until a number of newspapers across the nation printed anecdotal tribulations of them all.

Emergency Management (Mitigation) Policy analysis and assessment

Emergency management policy has undergone change historically and these changes have been disaster driven and administration dependent.

Early History of Emergency Management

A Congressional Act was passed in 1803 to make the provision of financial assistance to a town in New Hampshire that had been devastated by fire. This is the first involvement of the Federal government in a local disaster. In the 1930s the Reconstruction Finance Corporation along with the Bureau of Public Roads were granted authority to provide loans following disaster for repair and reconstruction of specific public facilities after disasters occurred. The Tennessee Valley Authority commonly known as TVA was created at this juncture to provide hydroelectric power and to bring about a reduction of flooding in the region. The Flood Control Act was passed in 1934 giving the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers an increased level of authority for…… [Read More]

Public Safety Networks supported by information and communication technology infrastructure, are products of one or more characteristics of their member agencies, which aggregate to complicated network behavior thereby reducing public safety events. PSNs operate as CAS because they are made up of multiple agencies, acting on condition and in parallel with member agencies leading to continuous adaptation and evolution. PSNs are organized to tackle Public safety exercises, such as anti-terrorism, fire prevention, law enforcement, and medical emergency that are deemed as wicked problems.

A broad range of cross-agency intergovernmental collaborative initiatives employing inter-organizational systems encounter challenges associated with cost inefficiencies, performance as well as social fabrics in PSNs.

The Transformation of Disaster Management

The 20th century would see an evolution in nearly every area of federal management in public affairs, with the roles, responsibilities and resources required to do the duty of the people being perpetually clarified and refined. One area in particular which remains even today in a state of constant evolution is that of disaster management. Indeed, this stands among the most unpredictable, challenging and constantly shifting duties of the federal government. And with increasing coordination with agencies also at the state and local levels, disaster management has proven an extremely complex area in which obstacles are constantly showing themselves in the midst of catastrophe. How we prepare for and mitigate these obstacles and the disasters from which they originate is a strategy that is under constant revision.

Disaster Recovery Refers to the IT Components

Words: 1705 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 29359382

Disaster recovery refers to the IT components of the business that, in times of a disaster, need to be safeguarded so that business can be continued. Disaster recovery is more a preventive plan set in motion prior to the organization and implementation of the business than a series of actions that are followed once the disaster hits the company. Given that most companies are, to a large extent and in many ways, reliant on their IT system, and that collapse of IT system has ramifications beyond the company, disaster recovery has become a significant part of planning to today's organization.

Disasters can be classified into two areas:

Natural disasters -- for example floods, hurricanes, or earthquakes where mitigation measures ahead of time can work towards avoiding or reducing data loss and IT cessation.

Man-made disasters -- such as terrorism where surveillance and avoidance planning can also work towards mitigating and…… [Read More]

Many Americans insisted on moralizing poverty and housing conditions.

One of the responses to the revelations was to build company towns, like Pullman, Illinois which provided decent housing and amenities to workers in the Pullman train car factory. This project appears to have been successful initially, but a debilitating strike caused by high rent and low wages destroyed the town and other companies were no longer willing to follow this model (Ibid. At 134). Still a bigger obstacle to widespread reform was the ubiquitous American reverence for private property rights. Notwithstanding the early New York measures, Americans were loath to deny the landlords unfettered control over their private property (Ibid. At 135).

Although the progressive era as a whole saw great advancement in public health and safety requirements, there was only marginal success regarding housing reform. Many reforms that affected how people lived were undertaken in the name of public…… [Read More]

Not every furniture company has the ability or money to develop smartphone apps. However, IKEA is able to increase its sales through e-commerce, which also increases company's accessibility and brand awareness (Ikea assembles record profits for 2011, 2011).

Moreover, IKEA is one of the very few furniture stores that carry a wide range of products with relatively low prices. Although the Bay is one of the largest retail chains, it does not offer a wide range of home furnishing and housewares selections compared to IKEA.

It's important to note that the majority of RFID tags can be programmed by the user - a critical component in the development of patient-based strategies around RFID and the reason healthcare service providers are focused on this technology and its implications for redefining their entire treatment programs and treatment value chains.

Figure 3 provides a schematic that defines how RFID works. Tags communicate with antennas specifically developed to pick up their pre-defined radio frequency and in turn communicate tag content and status back to a host computer. Once the data is transferred back to the host computer, databases are used for tracking and managing patient data.

The investigation will no doubt look into the fire shelter issue, although since the firefighters are gone, the question of why shelters were not used cannot be answered. If all five men had fire shelters on board the engine, it will seem sadly ironic that those protective units were not deployed.

Safety is concerned with preventing or minimizing injuries and fatalities that result from a variety of circumstances. Injury prevention is a priority area for health promotion officials. Whether in the home or workplace, all individuals are subject to injury at some point in their lives, though certain populations have been identified as being at greater risk than others. The key to injury prevention is knowledge and education. There are several steps an individual can take to prevent harm and bodily injury to themselves and their loved ones. Methods of injury prevention and minimization are described in greater detail below.

Moreover, U.S. students do not fare well on the international educational stage. At a time when globalization has brought much closer linkage between cultures, economies, and countries, American school children are lagging behind. The justification for focusing on strategies to keep children interested in school -- and to help them succeed in school -- is to be found in the fact that U.S. students' average scores are very poor in comparison to other students internationally.

A) Contrary to popular opinion, mankind and nature are two separate entities. They are not combined and are not one and the same. Nature does not need mankind to flourish; it can easily stay alive without difficulty and still remain strong, even for millions of years. Due to mankind's constant 'meddling' with the environment for personal reasons and for technological pursuits, there has been more harm done to nature than benefit.
