Disaster Response


Personal preparedness

Personal Preparedness

Basic Principles of Personal Preparedness

  • All of us should be able to survive comfortably on our own for at least 3 days following an incident

  • The time to prepare is BEFORE an incident occurs

  • Every family/individual should have a response plan

    Types of Events

  • Natural Disasters - Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods

  • Naturally Occurring Illnesses - Influenza, SARS

  • Terrorism Events - Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive


72 hours

72 Hours

  • Why does the government recommend 72 Hours?

  • A majority of events planned for have geographic boundaries

  • 72 hours is the maximum amount of time expected to leave a disaster zone and reach safety or have help come to you.

  • What happens if the disaster has no boundaries and there are no safe zones?


What disaster has no boundaries

What Disaster Has No Boundaries?


Viruses have no boundaries

Viruses Have No Boundaries

Avian Flu Strains are

among the most menacing


Morningstar disaster response

Fedson said infectious diseases have caused major die-offs in several mammalian species in recent years, and humans are subject to the same threats.

For example, about a third of the lions on Africa's Serengeti Plain died of distemper virus in the early 1990s, and more than 50% of gorillas and chimpanzees have died of Ebola virus infection in this decade, he said.

"Given what we know of the capability of flu viruses in general and this virus (H5N1) in particular, we have to take it seriously and . . . prepare for a pandemic that could cause a very high mortality," Fedson said. "We have to recognize that we're as vulnerable as the gorillas and chimps."

David Fedson, MD, a retired professor of medicine from the University of Virginia (January 11, 2008)

The next Pandemic is not a matter

of if, but when.

  • Current Avian Flu strain of H5N1 first discovered in Hong Kong in 1997

  • 10 years and still ticking


Morningstar disaster response

When?

No one knows when.

It could be tomorrow or in 10 years.

Experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and elsewhere believe that the world is now closer to another influenza pandemic than at any time since 1968, when the last of the previous century's three pandemics occurred.


What is known

What is Known?

Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control infected various laboratory animals with the virus (H5N1), taking out and adding genes, to measure its exact effect.

They found that changing just 20 to 30 out of the 4,000 amino acids contained in the original bird flu viral proteins made it into a human killer. In other words, the mutation that turned the virus from a bird killer into a human killer was very small.

Prague, 6 October 2005 (RFE/RL)

“This virus (H5N1) has demonstrated an unprecedented ability to change through mutation.”

Osterholm, director of the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, publisher of CIDRAP News. Jan 11, 2008 (CIDRAP News)


Is the world preparing for this

Is the World Preparing for This?

  • WHO uses a series of six phases of pandemic alert as a system for informing the world of the seriousness of the threat and of the need to launch progressively more intense preparedness activities.

  • Pandemic Alert Phase 3 Definition: No or very limited human-to-human transmission.

1918 spanish flu facts

1918 Spanish Flu Facts

  • The 1918 ‘‘Spanish flu’’ was the fastest spreading and most deadly influenza pandemic in recorded history. (CDC)

  • 1918 world population was 1.8 billion, the flu incapacitated 1 billion people and killed 25 million people in the space of 8 weeks.

  • For comparison, 55 million people died during the 6 years of World War II (Sep 1939 - Sep 1945). 8.5 million people died during the 4 years of World War I (Jun 1914 - Nov 1918).

  • The mortality rates for this flu were highest for the 20-29 age group paralleling the age group already dying in the greatest proportions in the European War.

  • Killed people on every continent except Antarctica


Around the world in one day

Around the World in One Day

“The 1918 pandemic spread more or less simultaneously in 3 distinct waves during an 12-month period in 1918–1919, in Europe, Asia, and North America.”

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Vol. 12, No. 1, January 2006


Morningstar disaster response

1918 Spanish Flu

H5N1

  • Avian Flu Strain

  • Over one third of the world population infected

  • Case fatality rate: 2.5%

  • Nearly half of the deaths were in young adults 20–40 years of age

  • 20 – 40 Million died World wide

  • Avian Flu Strain

  • Expected 1/3 World population to be infected

  • Case Fatality 60% WHO

  • 90% of cases occurred in people under the age of 40

  • Potential of 1.2 billion World wide

Even with modern antiviral and antibacterial drugs, vaccines, and prevention knowledge, the return of a pandemic virus equivalent in pathogenicity to the virus of 1918 would likely kill >100 million people worldwide. A pandemic virus with the (alleged) pathogenic potential of some recent H5N1 outbreaks could cause substantially more deaths.

What will you eat during a pandemic

What will you eat during a Pandemic?

Water electric during a pandemic

Water & Electric during a Pandemic

A recent flu mediation drill run in New Jersey showed that power and water could no longer be supplied to the town not due to lack of workers but lack of fuel when the town’s borders were closed. (PodCast – Wall Street Journal 2007)

“It is very possible that substantial disruption of basic services (such as healthcare, food, clothing, provision of utilities [e.g., water, electricity], and transportation) will occur.” Osterholm 2005: Preparing for the Next Pandemic


If we know how do we prepare

If we know, how do we prepare?

A prudent person foresees danger and prepares himself.

Proverbs 22:3 (TLB)

But the people that know their God shall be strong, and take action.

Daniel 11:32 (Darby)

7 mistakes of food storage

7 Mistakes of Food Storage

  • Variety: Based storage of wheat, milk, honey, and salt

    • Many people are allergic to wheat and may not be aware of it until they are eating it meal after meal

    • Wheat may be too harsh for younger children.

    • We get tired of eating the same foods over and over

“7 Mistakes of Food Storage” From: Backwoods Home Magazine


7 mistakes of food storage1

7 Mistakes of Food Storage

  • Extended Staples:

    • Make sure you add cooking oil, shortening, baking powder, soda, yeast, and powdered eggs. You can’t cook even the most basic recipes without these items.

  • Vitamins:

    • Have a good quality Multi Vitamin and Vitamin C.


7 mistakes of food storage2

7 Mistakes of Food Storage

  • Quick and easy and “psychological foods”

    • Quick: ready to eat without preparation: MRE

    • Have items in storage to “normalize” situations; goodies — Jell-O, pudding, candy, etc.

  • Balance/Variety: buy a variety of items each time, rather than a large quantity of one item.


7 mistakes of food storage3

7 Mistakes of Food Storage

  • Containers:

    • Always store your bulk foods in food storage containers. Bags are highly susceptible to moisture, insects, and rodents.

    • When using plastic buckets make sure they are lined with a food grade plastic liner. Never use trash can liners as these are treated with pesticides.

    • Don’t stack them too high.

    • Best containers are the #10 tin can

When food supplies are low nutrition tips

When Food Supplies are Low & Nutrition Tips

  • With reduced, healthy people can survive on half their usual food intake for an extended period and without any food for many days. Food, unlike water, may be rationed safely, except for children and pregnant women.

  • When water supply is limited, don’t eat salty foods, since they will make you thirsty.

    NUTRITION TIPS

  • Eat at least one well-balanced meal each day.

  • Drink enough liquid to enable your body to function properly (two quarts or a half gallon per day).

  • Take in enough calories to enable you to do necessary work.

  • Include vitamin, mineral, and protein supplements in your stockpile to ensure adequate nutrition.

Emergency water supplies

Emergency Water Supplies

  • Having an ample supply of clean water is a top priority in an emergency.

  • A normally active person needs to drink at least two quarts (half gallon) of water each day.

  • People in hot environments, children, nursing mothers, and ill people will require even more.

  • You will also need water for food preparation and hygiene.

  • Store at least one gallon per person, per day.

  • Consider storing at least a two-week supply of water for each member of your family.

  • If supplies run low, never ration water. Drink the amount you need today, and try to find more for tomorrow. You can minimize the amount of water your body needs by reducing activity and staying cool.


Emergency water supply fema government standards

Emergency Water Supply: FEMA Government Standards

  • 1 gallon per person per day (this includes consumption & hygiene)

  • Consider storing at least a two-week supply of water for each member of your family

  • Safest and most reliable emergency supply of water

    • Purchase commercially bottled water with PETE (or PET) plastic containers

    • Observe the expiration or “use by” date
