National preparedness actions taken by FEMA to implement select provisions of the Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006 by Thomas R Carper ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This work analyzed the five Post-Katrina Act provisions, reviewed agency documents--including emergency response and implementation plans and related reports--and discussed the act's implementation with FEMA officials to identify actions taken in response to the act's provisions during the period from October 2006 through November 2013. We also compared the actions described in agency documents and reported by officials with the provisions in order to describe any differences between the actions FEMA took and the language of the provisions. [It] does not assess the quality or likely outcomes of any of the actions that FEMA has taken. It was beyond the scope of this report to determine whether FEMA had fully complied with the provisions of the law or to evaluate the effectiveness--individually or collectively--of the actions that FEMA has taken
National preparedness countermeasures for thermal burns : [letter to Joseph I. Lieberman and Susan M. Collins, Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs United States Senate by Marcia Crosse ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A failed car bomb attempt in New York City in spring 2010 underscored the nation's vulnerability to intentional terrorist threats from explosive devices, such as conventional explosives, radiological "dirty bombs," and nuclear weapons. The blast and subsequent fires from such weapons could inflict serious thermal burns; in the case of a nuclear detonation, these injuries could affect hundreds to thousands of people. In such an attack, stabilizing individuals with burns and other injuries would be an immediate priority. Medical care for thermal burns in a mass casualty incident would require the ready availability of large quantities of medical countermeasures, such as pain medications, wound dressings, and intravenous fluids, both on-site and in emergency treatment facilities. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the federal agency primarily responsible for identifying and supporting the development and acquisition of the medical countermeasures needed to prevent or mitigate potential health effects from exposure to chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) agents and other terrorist threats. In addition to identifying these countermeasures, including those for thermal burns, HHS also has responsibility for engaging with industry to research and develop them and, ultimately, for acquiring them for the U.S. Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), if appropriate. The Project BioShield Act of 2004 authorized the establishment of a procurement fund for these countermeasures. Specifically, the act authorized the appropriation of about $5.6 billion over the 10-year period from fiscal year 2004 through fiscal year 2013 for the Project BioShield Special Reserve Fund to acquire certain medical countermeasures for the SNS. Multiple organizations have raised concerns about HHS's ability to work with industry to successfully develop and acquire medical countermeasures to respond to CBRN incidents and other terrorist threats, and since 2004 congressional committees have held several hearings to assess HHS's medical countermeasure development and acquisition efforts. You requested that we examine whether HHS has developed and acquired medical countermeasures that address thermal burn injuries that would result from conventional explosives or radiological or nuclear devices. Our review addresses (1) the medical countermeasures in the SNS that would address thermal burns, (2) the steps HHS has taken to obtain information about and inform industry of its interest in additional countermeasures for thermal burns, and (3) the medical countermeasures in the pipeline for development and acquisition into the SNS that could serve to address thermal burns

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld testifies, May 7, 2004 ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Presents footage of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumnsfeld as he faces Congressional hearings concerning issues of abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. Military personnel in the Abu Ghraib Prison. There are lots of serious questions. Why hasn't Rumsfeld thoroughly read the report on the abuses at that prison in Iraq? Why is the investigation moving so slowly? Why didn't he inform the President, or Congress, before the now infamous pictures showed up on television to inflame the American public and damage relations with Iraq?
