Capability Challenges to Effective Resource Management

Posted by The Brain on Sep 26, 2018 7:24:36 AM


To be successful, incident managers need to get materials, supplies, technologies, and especially responders to the emergency site as quickly and efficiently as possible. But those same managers will tell you that getting resources to the right place at the right time is only half the battle. Attention also needs to be paid to ensuring the productivity of those resources once they reach the disaster. Here, however, managers and dispatchers confront capability roadblocks to effective resource management.

Posted by The Brain on Jul 6, 2018 3:00:00 AM


The Case of Australia and New Zealand

Like most advanced economies, Australia and New Zealand relied heavily on substances now deemed hazardous during industrialization in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. As a result, both countries now have relatively high, per-capita rates of hazardous waste. In response, both countries have installed relatively stringent regulatory regimes to safeguard environmental and worker safety. But some of those regimes have changed recently. This blog will provide an overview of recent changes in hazardous waste regulations.

The Truth About Bird Strikes: What airport operators can do to better prevent the hazard

Posted by The Brain on Jun 15, 2018 1:32:06 AM

Similarly, statistics in the U.S. point to an estimated 13,000-plus bird strikes in this country every year. Passenger lives aren’t usually at stake in these incidents –there’ve only been 25 fatalities due to wild bird strikes between the years 1990 to 2013, according to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). But the risks of bird strikes aren’t exactly insignificant either.
