Preparing for the Test
The results suggest that this delivery system may be effective for selective targeting of prostate cancer cells. Best known for his never-ending high energy level and aerobic excersizes, he advocated passionately against junk food and overeating. Animals drinking PJ also exhibited significant reductions in serum PSA levels compared with animals drinking normal water only. Peterson persuaded the supermarket to disclose what seafood had been previously frozen, a widespread practice now but one not in use before then. Fatty foods and migraine Fatty acids, primarily linoleic and oleic acids, may be involved in the mechanism of migraine vascular headaches. Preventive or mitigation measures take different forms for different types of disasters.
6. Check Your Stress Level
In a shelter-in-place scenario, a family would be prepared to fend for themselves in their home for many days without any form of outside support. In an evacuation , a family leaves the area by automobile or other mode of transportation , taking with them the maximum amount of supplies they can carry, possibly including a tent for shelter. If mechanical transportation is not available, evacuation on foot would ideally include carrying at least three days of supplies and rain-tight bedding, a tarpaulin and a bedroll of blankets.
Donations are often sought during this period, especially for large disasters that overwhelm local capacity. Due to efficiencies of scale, money is often the most cost-effective donation if fraud is avoided. Money is also the most flexible, and if goods are sourced locally then transportation is minimized and the local economy is boosted.
Some donors prefer to send gifts in kind , however these items can end up creating issues, rather than helping. One innovation by Occupy Sandy volunteers is to use a donation registry, where families and businesses impacted by the disaster can make specific requests, which remote donors can purchase directly via a web site. Medical considerations will vary greatly based on the type of disaster and secondary effects.
Survivors may sustain a multitude of injuries to include lacerations , burns , near drowning , or crush syndrome. The recovery phase starts after the immediate threat to human life has subsided.
The immediate goal of the recovery phase is to bring the affected area back to normalcy as quickly as possible. During reconstruction it is recommended to consider the location or construction material of the property. The most extreme home confinement scenarios include war, famine and severe epidemics and may last a year or more.
Then recovery will take place inside the home. Planners for these events usually buy bulk foods and appropriate storage and preparation equipment, and eat the food as part of normal life. A simple balanced diet can be constructed from vitamin pills, whole-meal wheat, beans, dried milk , corn, and cooking oil. Professional emergency managers can focus on government and community preparedness, or private business preparedness. Training is provided by local, state, federal and private organizations and ranges from public information and media relations to high-level incident command and tactical skills.
In the past, the field of emergency management has been populated mostly by people with a military or first responder background. Currently, the field has become more diverse, with many managers coming from a variety of backgrounds other than the military or first responder fields. Educational opportunities are increasing for those seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees in emergency management or a related field. There are over schools in the US with emergency management-related programs, but only one doctoral program specifically in emergency management.
There are also professional organizations for emergency managers, such as the National Emergency Management Association and the International Association of Emergency Managers. Cortez Lawrence, Superintendent of FEMA's Emergency Management Institute, convened a working group of emergency management practitioners and academics to consider principles of emergency management.
This was the first time the principles of the discipline were to be codified. The group agreed on eight principles that will be used to guide the development of a doctrine of emergency management. Below is a summary:. A fuller description of these principles can be found at . For continuity and inter-operability between emergency management stakeholders, EMIS supports an infrastructure that integrates emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government involvement for all four phases of emergencies.
In the healthcare field, hospitals utilize the Hospital Incident Command System HICS , which provides structure and organization in a clearly defined chain of command. Practitioners in emergency management come from an increasing variety of backgrounds. Professionals from memory institutions e. This has been an increasingly major component within this field as a result of the heightened awareness following the September 11 attacks in , the hurricanes in , and the collapse of the Cologne Archives.
To increase the potential successful recovery of valuable records, a well-established and thoroughly tested plan must be developed. This plan should emphasize simplicity in order to aid in response and recovery: It should also include mitigation strategies such as the installation of sprinklers within the institution.
In , the U. Agency for International Development created a web-based tool for estimating populations impacted by disasters. In , a checklist for veterinarians was published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, it had two sets of questions for a professional to ask themselves before assisting with an emergency:.
While written for veterinarians, this checklist is applicable for any professional to consider before assisting with an emergency. TIEMS' goal is to develop and bring modern emergency management tools, and techniques into practice, through the exchange of information, methodology innovations and new technologies. TIEMS provides a platform for stakeholders to meet, network and learn about new technical and operational methodologies.
TIEMS focuses on cultural differences to be understood and included in the society's events, education and research programs. This is achieved by establishing local chapters worldwide.
The International Association of Emergency Managers IAEM is a non-profit educational organization aimed at promoting the goals of saving lives and property protection during emergencies. The mission of IAEM is to serve its members by providing information, networking and professional opportunities, and to advance the emergency management profession. It has seven councils around the world: Air Force Emergency Management personnel.
The HFA is a global plan for disaster risk reduction adopted by governments. The key role of IRP is to identify gaps in post disaster recovery and to serve as a catalyst for the development of tools and resources for recovery efforts. In addition, the IFRC may deploy assessment teams, e. They are specialized in the response component of the emergency management framework. BGR and its partners respond globally to people with critical needs worldwide, whether those needs arise from chronic conditions or acute crises such as natural disasters.
The United Nations system rests with the Resident Coordinator within the affected country. Prevention and mitigation projects include forest fire prevention measures, such as early warning measures and education campaigns; early-warning systems for hurricanes; flood prevention mechanisms e.
GFDRR helps developing countries fund development projects and programs that enhance local capacities for disaster prevention and emergency preparedness. In the EU adopted Community Mechanism for Civil Protection, to facilitate co-operation in the event of major emergencies requiring urgent response actions.
This also applies to situations where there may be an imminent threat as well. Accessible 24 hours a day, it gives countries access to a one-stop-shop of civil protections available amongst all the participating states.
Any country inside or outside the Union affected by a major disaster can make an appeal for assistance through the MIC. It acts as a communication hub, and provides useful and updated information on the actual status of an ongoing emergency. Naers are part of life in Australia.
Heatwaves have killed more Australians than any other type of natural disaster in the 20th century. Australia's emergency management processes embrace the concept of the prepared community.
The principal government agency in achieving this is Emergency Management Australia. Public Safety Canada is Canada's national emergency management agency.
Each province is required to have both legislation for dealing with emergencies, and provincial emergency management agencies, typically called "Emergency Measures Organizations" EMO. Public Safety Canada co-ordinates and supports the efforts of federal organizations as well as other levels of government, first responders, community groups, the private sector, and other nations.
Other acts are specific to individual fields such as corrections, law enforcement, and national security. Local fire department units, the German Armed Forces Bundeswehr , the German Federal Police and the 16 state police forces Länderpolizei are also deployed during disaster relief operations.
There are several private organizations in Germany that also deal with emergency relief. As of , there is a program of study at the University of Bonn leading to the degree "Master in Disaster Prevention and Risk Governance"  As a support function radio amateurs provide additional emergency communication networks with frequent trainings.
The National Disaster Management Authority is the primary government agency responsible for planning and capacity-building for disaster relief. Its emphasis is primarily on strategic risk management and mitigation, as well as developing policies and planning. The National Disaster Response Force is the government agency primarily responsible for emergency management during natural and man-made disasters , with specialized skills in search, rescue and rehabilitation.
This arrangement unites humanitarian and development partners with Government of Nepal and had identified 5 flagship priorities for sustainable disaster risk management. If local arrangements are overwhelmed, pre-existing mutual-support arrangements are activated.
These structures are defined by regulation,  and explained in The Guide to the National Civil Defence Emergency Management Plan , roughly equivalent to the U. New Zealand uses unique terminology for emergency management. Emergency management is rarely used, many government publications retaining the use of the term civil defence. Civil Defence Emergency Management is a term in its own right, defined by statute.
For example, publications refer to the Canterbury Snow Event Disaster management in Pakistan revolves around flood disasters focusing on rescue and relief. Federal Flood Commission was established in under Ministry of Water and Power to manage the issues of flood management on country-wide basis.
The National Disaster Management Ordinance, and National Disaster Management Act, were enacted after Kashmir earthquake and Pakistan floods respectively to deal with disaster management. The primary central authority mandated to deal with whole spectrum of disasters and their management in the country is National Disaster Management Authority.
In addition each province along with FATA , Gilgit Baltistan and Pakistani administered Kashmir has its own provincial disaster management authority responsible for implementing policies and plans for Disaster Management in the Province.
Each District has its own District Disaster Management Authority for planning, coordinating and implementing body for disaster management and take all measures for the purposes of disaster management in the districts in accordance with the guidelines laid down by the National Authority and the Provincial Authority. In the Philippines , the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council is responsible for the protection and welfare of people during disasters or emergencies.
It is a working group composed of various government, non-government, civil sector and private sector organizations of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines. Headed by the Secretary of National Defense under the Office of Civil Defense, the NDRRMCs implementing organization , it coordinates all the executive branches of government, presidents of the leagues of local government units throughout the country, the Armed Forces of the Philippines , Philippine National Police , Bureau of Fire Protection which is an agency under the Department of Interior and Local Government , and the public and private medical services in responding to natural and manmade disasters, as well as planning, coordination, and training of these responsible units.
It is part of a broader effort by the federal authorities to re-establish national institutions. The Federal Parliament is now expected to deliberate on the proposed bill for endorsement after any amendments. In the Netherlands the Ministry of Security and Justice is responsible for emergency preparedness and emergency management on a national level and operates a national crisis centre NCC.
The country is divided into 25 safety regions veiligheidsregio. In a safety region, there are four components: The regional dispatch operates for police, fire department and the regional medical care.
The dispatch has all these three services combined into one dispatch for the best multi-coordinated response to an incident or an emergency. And also facilitates in information management, emergency communication and care of citizens. These services are the main structure for a response to an emergency. It can happen that, for a specific emergency, the co-operation with an other service is needed, for instance the Ministry of Defence , water board s or Rijkswaterstaat. The veiligheidsregio can integrate these other services into their structure by adding them to specific conferences on operational or administrative level.
All regions operate according to the Coordinated Regional Incident Management system. Following the fuel protests and severe flooding that same year, as well as the foot-and-mouth crisis in , the United Kingdom passed the Civil Contingencies Act CCA.
The CCA defined some organisations as Category 1 and 2 Responders, setting responsibilities regarding emergency preparedness and response. Disaster Management training is generally conducted at the local level, and consolidated through professional courses that can be taken at the Emergency Planning College. Diplomas, undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications can be gained at universities throughout the country. The Institute of Emergency Management is a charity, established in , providing consulting services for the government, media and commercial sectors.
Staff from five hospitals and three airports participated in the drill, and almost international observers assessed its effectiveness. Processes are then mapped to specific hazards or threats, with the manager looking for gaps, overlaps, and conflicts between processes. Given these notions, emergency managers must identify, contemplate, and assess possible man-made threats and natural threats that may affect their respective locales.
Thus, although similarities may exist, no two emergency plans will be completely identical. Additionally, each locale has different resources and capacities e. This creates a plan more resilient to unique events because all common processes are defined, and it encourages planning done by the stakeholders who are closer to the individual processes, such as a traffic management plan written by a public works director. In the United States, all disasters are initially local, with local authorities, with usually a police, fire, or EMS agency, taking charge.
Many local municipalities may also have a separate dedicated office of emergency management OEM , along with personnel and equipment. If the event becomes overwhelming to the local government, state emergency management the primary government structure of the United States becomes the controlling emergency management agency.
FEMA supports, but does not override, state authority. The Citizen Corps is an organization of volunteer service programs, administered locally and coordinated nationally by DHS, which seek to mitigate disasters and prepare the population for emergency response through public education, training, and outreach. Most disaster response is carried out by volunteer organizations. It is typically the lead agency handling shelter and feeding of evacuees.
Religious organizations, with their ability to provide volunteers quickly, are usually integral during the response process.
The largest being the Salvation Army ,  with a primary focus on chaplaincy and rebuilding, and Southern Baptists who focus on food preparation and distribution,  as well as cleaning up after floods and fires, chaplaincy, mobile shower units, chainsaw crews and more.
With over 65, trained volunteers, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is one of the largest disaster relief organizations in the US. Unaffiliated volunteers show up at most large disasters. To prevent abuse by criminals, and for the safety of the volunteers, procedures have been implemented within most response agencies to manage and effectively use these 'SUVs' Spontaneous Unaffiliated Volunteers.
The National Tribal Emergency Management Council NEMC is a non-profit educational organization developed for Tribal organizations to share information and best practices, as well as to discuss issues regarding public health and safety, emergency management and homeland security, affecting those under Indian sovereignty. The NRF allows the integration of federal resources with local, country, state, or tribal entities, with management of those resources to be handled at the lowest possible level, utilizing the National Incident Management System NIMS.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer information for specific types of emergencies, such as disease outbreaks, natural disasters and severe weather, chemical and radiation accidents, etc. The Emergency Preparedness and Response Program of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health develops resources to address responder safety and health during responder and recovery operations. The Emergency Management Institute EMI serves as the national focal point for the development and delivery of emergency management training to enhance the capabilities of state , territorial, local , and tribal government officials; volunteer organizations; FEMA's disaster workforce; other Federal agencies; and the public and private sectors to minimize the impact of disasters and emergencies on the American public.
EMI curricula are structured to meet the needs of this diverse audience with an emphasis on separate organizations working together in all-hazards emergencies to save lives and protect property. Approximately 5, participants attend resident courses each year while , individuals participate in non-resident programs sponsored by EMI and conducted locally by state emergency management agencies under cooperative agreements with FEMA.
An Orientation to the Position" and provides background information on FEMA and the role of emergency managers in agency and volunteer organization coordination. It has trained more than 2. In emergency or disaster management the SMAUG model of identifying and prioritizing risk of hazards associated with natural and technological threats is an effective tool. The SMAUG model provides an effective means of prioritizing hazard risks based upon the aforementioned criteria in order to address the risks posed by the hazards to the avail of effecting effective mitigation , reduction, response and recovery methods.
Seriousness can be defined as "The relative impact in terms of people and dollars. Manageability can be defined as "the relative ability to mitigate or reduce the hazard through managing the hazard, or the community or both ". Hazards presenting a high risk and as such requiring significant amounts of risk reduction initiatives will be rated high.
Acceptability — The degree to which the risk of hazard is acceptable in terms of political, environmental, social and economic impact. Urgency — This is related to the probability of risk of hazard and is defined in terms of how imperative it is to address the hazard .
Growth — This is the potential for the hazard or event to expand or increase in either probability or risk to community or both. Should vulnerability increase, potential for growth may also increase. An example of the numerical ratings for each of the four criteria is shown below: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This section does not cite any sources.

After that the retailer must remove it from the shelf. This indicates the last day at which that food item is considered at peak quality.
Dry cereals, for example, are labeled as such Expiration date--Indicaataes the last date on which the product should be used for assured quality Pack date--Indicates the day on which the food was processed or packaged. This simply is another indicataion of how fresh the merchandise is and can be found mostly on canned foods As with all dates, they are merel freshness indicators. Following storage guidelines for individual food times is the best way to insure freshness. C4 "While the simple shelf-life dating of food may increase consumer confidence in the quality of the product, it may have little bearing on the food's safety.
This conclusion was one of the major findings of the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment in a report made public yesterday following an investigation into shelf-life dating. The investigation sought to test the widespread belief that replacing the food industry's present system of largely indecipherable coded dates with clearly understandable open dates on food packages would help increase consumer confidence in food freshness, and encourage better handling of food products by retailers.
Open shelf-life dating involves putting dates on food packages to tell retailers and consumers when the contents should best be sold or eaten to insure freshness, The dates may say when the product was packaged, when it should be sold and the date that it should be discarded if uneaten. Some form of open dating, generally involving dairy products, now is in effect in 21 states and the District of Columbia.
Some food processors also have put open dates on selected food products, including numerical or color codes to aid in inventory control. But the report said there was considerable confusion because of the lack of a uniform dating system.
The present systems vary widely as to the foods to be dated, the dates to be used and their meaning The report which was preapared at the request of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, said 'There are no nationwide statistics on the amount of food sold that is not fresh' According to the report, New York is one of those states that have no dating system at all.
New Jersey requires the open dating of dairy productcs and Connecticut orders the open dating of milk. As to other overall findings, the report found that: Pressure for open dating stems from public perceptions that this would insure food freshness, which may not be abolutely correct.
Open dating fails to take into account the influence of such environmental factors as temperature, humidity and light and is unlikely to 'in the near furture. The costs of open dating are small and unclear 'but nonetheless may add from 1 to 1 cent to the costs of each packaged food. Lyons, New York Times , August 29, p. C8  "Although freshness dates are used by many shoppers when buying food, they actually tell very little about a product's shelf life, says Lloyd Witter, food science professor at the University of Illinois.
Shelf life varies with the age and type of ingredients used, the process, the package, the environmental conditions during distribution and storage as well as the consumer's preference as to how fresh is "fresh. After that, the responsibility shifts to the wholesaler, retailer and the consumer, Witter says.
Many food packages already indicate in code the date they were processed to help supermarket personnel rotate stock and to identify defective merchandise in the event of a product recall. Witter says the issue of food dating has been debated for 30 years. Consumers have urged that actual dates be used to indicate a product's freshness. The types of dating systems that have been proposed are the pack date, sell-by date or best-if-used by date.
For this reason he thinks the best dating system would be the "best-if-used-by" date. This indicates that the food is still safe although possibly of lower quality after that time.
According to Witter, the use-by date incorrectly implies that the product is of high quality until that date regardless of any storage problems and that it becomes unpalatable or dangerous after that date. The pack date tells when food was packed and leaves it up to the consumer to decide how long after that date the food is still of high quality. This is the coded date most often used for stock rotation. Many states now require a sell-by date, also called the pull date, on certain foods.
After this date, the store manager must remove the package from his regular retail shelves and either dispose of it or sell it at a reduced price in a segregated part of the store. Food dating can be misleading and cause unnecessary problems in some cases, Witter says. Dating information depends on whether the food is perishable, semi- perishable or shelf stable, Witter says.
Milk, eggs and fish are classified as perishable, and most states limit the length of time they may remain on shelves or in coolers. Requirements vary among states, however, and the actual temperature in a given cooler or the length of time the food is left outside the cooler will determine whether the product actually retains its high quality for the stated time.
Similar considerations also apply to semiperishable foods such as cheese, cured meats, some pickled foods and snack foods. Even shelf stable food, such as canned goods, dried foods and breakfast cereals, can lose their quality if exposed to high temperatures and humidity, especially if their protective packaging is damaged.
You could just walk to the local bakery and choose a new-baked, fragrant loaf. Today, if you shop in a large market, you probably do a lot more reading than sniffing to judge the freshness of bread--and many other foods as well. Along with the ingredients list, nutrition labeling and other product information, you may find any of six kinds of dates on food packages. Open dating, as this is called, got started in the s as part of the consumers' "right to know" movement.
Designed to inform shoppers of product shelf life and to guide retailers in stock rotation, it can be confusing. Some state and local statutes may require dating of perishable items such as eggs, milk and prepared sandwiches, but this country has no federal regulations and no uniform dating system.
The hodgepodge of codes can befuddle any shopper. Open dating is not the only kind of numbering system manufacturers may employ. Nor is it the same as the Universal Product Code, the small block of parallel lines and numbers found on practically all labels.
Instead, open dating is a specific date either printed, stamped or embossed on a product. Whether on the tops or bottoms of cans, on bottle caps or on the side panels of boxes, open dating is there to help shoppers select products at the store and keep tabs on them at home.
The pack date--the day the food was manufactured or processed--tells how old the food is when you buy it. It is generally used on items with a long shelf life: Pack-date information does not tell you how long a product is good or safe to eat, but it is helpful for recalls. By contrast, the pull date or "sell by" date is the last day a retailer should sell a product as fresh. Perishable foods--dairy products, meats, fish, bakery goods and cold cuts--may be stamped with a pull date. It allows time for home storage, so that an item remains fine beyond that date.
How long it can be stored at home depends to some extent on the food in question. Another category, the "best-if-used-by" date, may appear on cereals, aseptic packages of fruit and vegetable juices, snack foods, peanut butter, salad dressings and cookies.
Items consumed after this date may represent no health risk, but manufacturers will no longer guarantee their quality. Occasionally, perishable goods like soft cheeses may be stamped with a "best-if-purchased-by" date, which is then synonymous with the pull or "sell by" date. Fresh meat packed at the store may have a "display date" to indicate the day it went on the food-store shelf. Expiration dates may appear on a few items like baby formula and yeast as the last date the item should be eaten or used.
Although it is easy to agree that we ought to have shelf-life dating for foods, designing a simplified and more consistent system is a major hurdle. Shelf life depends on the initial quality of the food and its subsequent handling and storage. Most foods need to be protected from heat, light and excess moisture.
In general, the higher the temperature during storage, the greater loss of food quality. Predictions of shelf life, then, are relative estimates that assume a reasonable amount of care in food handling. Even the freshest of poultry can quickly deteriorate if left for long at a warm temperature. A pack date on wrapped chicken can help indicate freshness, but such information is valuable only if appropriate food practices are followed, both in the supermarket and at home.
Different kinds of foods lend themselves to different types of open dating. Some, like salt and sugar, have indefinite shelf lives and need no dating. They are not readily susceptible to microbial or chemical degradation if kept dry. Other foods are difficult to date because shelf life may depend greatly on how the product is stored. A "sell by" date on frozen fruits and vegetables would be impractical because most degradation occurs after they leave the supermarket freezer.
The most desirable label for these foods is probably a "best-if-used-by" date that includes storage and handling instructions. In short, the dates on foods mean different things from one item to another, and it can be hard to decipher these numerous designations. Until a better system is invented, one way to help maintain peak quality at the table is to try to buy only as much as you are likely to use up well within the limits of freshness dating.
The large economy size that lasts far beyond its shelf life is hardly a bargain. And, then again, might not find. According to the U. Department of Agriculture, if a product is so stamped, here's what the designations mean: But the two main regulatory food agencies-the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration-have no ruling on mandatory dating of food packages, leaving it up to the manufacturer and packager whether to advise consumers on the window of use for their product.
However, if a calendar date is used, it must express both the month and day of the month and the year, in the case of shelf-stable and frozen products. If a calendar date is shown, immediately adjacent to the date must be a phrase explaining the meaning of that date such as "sell by" or "use before.
Although dating of some foods is required by more than 20 states, there are areas of the country where much of the food supply has some type of open date and other areas where almost no food is dated. Nutrition Analysis Tool , University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign USA diet cook books Long before we had modern medicine and nutrition science, people understood the relationship between what they ate and how their bodies reacted.
Ancient Greeks and Renaissance Europeans "prescribed" foods based on humoral theory. Pre-industrial cookbooks typically offered "invalid" recipes. Educated Domestic Scientists and passionate health advocates fueled the temperance movement.
