Background of the study
Communication is the best way to connect to people, it is important to communicate well to have a better understanding of one another. It is the exchange of ideas, messages or information by speech, signals or writing. Decisions often dependent upon the quality and quantity of the information received. If the information that has been transmitted is poor or incomplete the decision will often be incorrect.
Over the millennia, human used various ways to communicate to one another in space and even in time, wood and stones, parchment and paper, electricity and electro-magnetic waves. As new media for communication have been created, the old ones have become specialized(Rosengren,2000) although media have change drastically as centuries passed by, it is still not complete and new form of communication is still being created and develop day by day.
One of the ways to communicate is with the use of mobile device. smartphones is now a major source of information device which can be seen in almost everyone’s hand in the world. With increasing innovation Mobile device can process, analyse and store data. Resulting into big efficiency rather than using computer. People will soon be able to access and consume information anytime, anywhere, from any device. As the most widely used computing device, a cell phone or a new generation smart phone, will likely play a significant role in future mobile computing(Zheng & Ni,2005) In addition it is easier to access and cost efficient will be preferred by many. And the fact that the efficiencies brought by the mobile computing result into large cost saving for the organization.
It redefined the usage of mobile phones in the communication world, smartphone gave a new dimension to the usage of mobile phone for the user, apart from…...

Emergency Management

...provides emergency assistance to help countries with "urgent balance of payments financing needs in the wake of natural disasters or armed conflict" (International Monetary Fund Factsheet, 2011, p.1). This emergency financial assistance is designed to be distributed rapidly to aid countries who may potentially exhaust their monetary reserves in the aftermath of a natural or technological disaster. This paper will examine why it is important for financial institutions like the IMF and the World Bank to be involved in disaster management. In addition, some of the ways which these financial institutions distribute aid to countries affected by disaster will also be identified. Keywords: World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), disaster management. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund's Role in Disaster Relief The IMF and its sister organization, the World Bank, were born at the end of World War II. These powerful financial institutions were created out of a need to prevent economic crises like the Great Depression and to help rebuild Europe from the devastation resulting from years of conflict. The IMF is the largest public lender of funds in the world. It is a specialized agency of the United Nations and is run by its 186 member countries. Membership is open to any country that conducts foreign policy and accepts the organization's statutes (Heakal, 2010). The IMF is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the international monetary......

...mobilizing and managing health and medical services in response to emergencies at Glover International Airport. These areas include treatment, transport and evocation of the injured, removal of deceased, disease control and prevention of contamination during emergencies. • Situation and Assumptions Glover International Airport provides basic emergency medical care response for the Airport and will request assistance from the city of Seattle and City or Tukwila Fire Departments as necessary. The Airport provides emergency medical services through ARFF personnel and on/off-site mutual aid emergency medical technicians. If mutual aid is not available, the use of triage will be utilized to ensure an efficient use of existing resources. The Airport strives to ensure its response is adequate to protect life and health for the first 12 to 24 hours without outside assistance. Large-scale incident will require outside agency support. The surrounding communities have a large contingent of Health and Medical resources to bring to bear. Many medical professionals will volunteer their services and Glover International Airport must be prepared to ensure their legitimacy. It should be noted that these resource might they be adversely affected by the emergency. All requests for additional health and medical support will be made though the on-site Law Enforcement and will be coordinated in accordance with the Incident Command System. • Operations All responding agencies will report to......

Economic System for Emergency Disaster Relief

...Which economic system is best suited for handling a crisis of epic proportions (hurricane, flood, blizzard, forest fire, etc.)? Why? When there is a natural disaster, crisis crews such as fire departments, ambulances, police and etc. are usually the primary help to be first on sight to help the general public. The Socialism system seems to offer the best resolution for controlling emergency situations. The administration takes care of compensating the individuals who work there so each person can concentrate on assisting the individuals that are in need of aid. With organizations like the Red Cross being a not for profit organization means that each person is doing what they are supposed to do by seeing after each injured individual’s best interest. Socialism, in its perfect form, would be the best economic system to assist people because it demonstrates to people how to come together during this time of crisis and assist each other in this time of great need. Being familiar with what could happen in your area, the possible hazards that could affect the area in the aftermath and the knowledge of what to do to protect yourself and your family can help you take effective steps to prepare beforehand and aid recovery after the event. To validate why socialism is a better choice, we should look at what is socialism. Socialism is an economic structure based on the proposition that some, if not most, rudimentary businesses such as coal mines and utilities, should be......

Ketika American Heart Assocation (AHA) menetapkan pedoman resusitasi yang pertama kali pada tahun 1966, resusitasi jantung paru (RJP) awalnya “A-B-C” yaitu membuka jalan nafas korban (Airway), memberikan bantuan napas (Breathing) dan kemudian memberikan kompresi dinding dada (Circulation). Namun, sekuensinya berdampak pada penundaan bermakna (kira-kira 30 detik) untuk memberikan kompresi dinding dada yang dibutuhkan untuk mempertahankan sirkulasi darah yang kaya oksigen. Dalam 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, AHA menekankan fokus bantuan hidup dasar pada: 1. Pengenalan segera pada henti jantung yang terjadi tiba-tiba (immediate recognition of sudden cardiac arrest [SCA]) 2. Aktivasi sistem respons gawat darurat (activation of emergency response system) 3.

The Future of Emergency Medical System: Public or Private?

...The Future of Emergency Medical System: Public or Private? The people in every community across the country rely on a system that few are actually aware of and that most hope to never use. It’s activated during medical and trauma emergencies, responding on scene to provide life saving interventions and rapid transport to health care facilities. This is the emergency medical system (EMS). EMS is a relatively young industry having only formally been around since the 1970s when congress passed the EMS Systems Act of 1973(Shah). At the time, pre-hospital care was either non-existent, operated by the local hospital system, or run by a group of volunteers (Shah). The industry has come a long way since its creation and is ever evolving. As it became apparent that this could be a moneymaking field, many private companies entered the industry, taking over care from hospital systems and providing quality care to a city’s residents through multi-year contracts of service. Another industry undergoing changes in tangent with private EMS is city funded Fire & Rescue services, an industry with very high operation and labor costs. Statistically, there are fewer fires each year with slightly over 1 million structural fires in the US in 1977, there were only 484,500 in 2011, a drop of over 50% (NFPA, see appendix for graph), yet a city cannot just release its firefighters. In order to justify the expense of keeping firefighters on the payroll, many cities across the country have......

Hypertensive Emergency

...------------------------------------------------- Hypertensive emergency From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A hypertensive emergency is severe hypertension (high blood pressure) with acute impairment of an organ system (especially the central nervous system, cardiovascular system and/or the renal system) and the possibility of irreversible organ-damage. In case of a hypertensive emergency, the blood pressure should be substantially lowered over minutes to hours with an antihypertensive agent. Contents [hide] * 1 Treatment * 2 Incidence * 3 Definition * 3.1 Hypertensive emergency as a generic term * 4 Pathophysiology * 5 Mortality * 6 Clinical history * 7 References * 8 See also | ------------------------------------------------- [edit]Treatment Several classes of antihypertensive agents are recommended and the choice for the antihypertensive agent depends on the cause for the hypertensive crisis, the severity of elevated blood pressure and the patient's usual blood pressure before the hypertensive crisis. In most cases, the administration of an intravenous sodium nitroprusside injection which has an almost immediate antihypertensiveeffect is suitable but in many cases not readily available. In less urgent cases, oral agents like captopril, clonidine, labetalol, prazosin, which all have a delayed onset of action by several minutes compared to sodium nitroprusside, can also be used. It is also important that the blood pressure is lowered not too...

Emergency System Triage

...rapidly sort and treat large numbers of wounded, and in our medical facilities/Emergency Medical System (EMS) to assign acuity levels and route patients to the most appropriate facility for the appropriate level of care. Literature shows that the use of evidence-based practice to develop screening protocols has greatly improved the outcomes of patients who enter into our medical system either through emergency departments (ED) or by emergency medical services (rescue). The following will discuss two screening protocols that are supported by American Heart Association (AHA) as well as, other renowned institutions and are being implemented nationwide in medical facilities and pre-hospital settings to provide a higher level of care to our patients. The first protocol is a rapid screen for Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology have both published literature in support of the use of an electrocardiogram (EKG) within 10 minutes of arrival for patients who present with acute chest pain in order to rapidly identify acute coronary syndrome. Research shows that obtaining the EKG in 10 minutes greatly improves the time it takes to identify a ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and decreases the time from “door to balloon”. Door to balloon is a term widely used to describe the interval between the time a patient arrives in the emergency department and the first inflation of the angioplasty balloon......

Emergency Prepardness

...Emergency Preparedness The world has encountered multiple disasters throughout the past decade. The devastation from tsunamis, mudslides, hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, wildfires, super storms, and terroristic attacks impacts the lives of millions, and the affects will be felt for generations. A "disaster is an event that causes a level of destruction, death, or injury that affects the abilities of the community to respond to the incident using available resources" (Nies & McEwen, 2011, p. 562). The state of Texas has experienced severe drought conditions for several years. Severe drought conditions place Texas at high risk for wildfires and flooding. In 2011 Texas experienced the most devastating wildfire season the state has seen in years. The worst wildfire in the state's history "broke out in Bastrop County on Sept. 4, a hot, dry, windy Sunday afternoon. Before firefighters got it contained, the Bastrop County Complex Fire covered some 34,000 acres, claimed two lives and destroyed more than 1,600 homes" (Fountain & Nottingham, 2011, n.p.). Extreme drought conditions placed professional and volunteer firefighters on high alert; as red flag warnings posted, and threats of dangerous fire conditions continued. On Sunday, September 4, around 14:15 in the afternoon, Bastrop County dispatch received a call about a brush fire near U.S. 290 and Texas 21, in the Circle D neighborhood, sparked by what appeared to be a downed power line. By the time Bastrop......

Emergency Preparedness

...safety. As an individual, community, or government, we need to be prepared for an emergency disaster. And what makes the big difference is the degree of preparedness. The preparedness should be towards planning, educating and training the emergency mangers personnel and public. The level of disaster prevention management consist of three phase, prevention/primary, response/secondary and recovery/tertiary. In the primary phase the goal is to reduce the likelihood of diseases, injures, disabilities, and death causing by a disaster. The prevention should be towards identifying risk factor within the community and developing and planning a programs to prevent disasters from happening. The measures that should be include in this phase are educating, individual, family and community in regard to what action to take to prepare for disasters. The active surveillance of hurricanes in the U.S. is a type of primary prevention. Their strategy is to organize a plan to reduce the disaster's impact. For example during Hurricane Katrina the primary prevention was early warning and evacuation. According to the active surveillance of hurricanes in United State, this approach was very successful in regard to reducing the number of deaths associated with hurricanes. During hurricane Irene the local government of city of Trenton provided instruction for evacuation through telephone message system and city's website. These instructions were planed to get everyone ready for......

Emergency Preparedness

...Emergency Preparedness and Response Joy Carr NUR/408 January 10, 2012 Sandi Wheeler, R.N., MSN Emergency Preparedness and Response Public emergency preparedness and response is the ability of the public health and health care systems, communities, and individuals, to prevent, protect against, quickly respond to, and recover from emergencies, particularly those whose scale, timing, or unpredictability threatens to overwhelm routine capabilities. Preparedness involves a continuous process of planning and implementation that relies on measuring performance and taking corrective action. There are many different public agencies, from local to national, that are dedicated and devoted to this. The Neighborhood is a community that is nestled near Neighborhood River and along the Neighborhood Forest, with a population of 64,200. They are in the presence of a wildfire that is raging just west of the town border. The fire has been burning out of control for five days with the local fire departments battling to contain it. Initially, it was believed to be easily containable but with the early advent of the windy season, the fire continues to burn out of control. Community officials urge citizens that they are not in any immediate danger for evacuation but will issue alerts if they feel the fires may shift course towards the community. Public health officials are urging residents, especially those with chronic heart and lung disease, to remain inside unless......
