In partnership with Senior Navigator, the Bristol Public Library will present a program on Disaster Preparedness on Tuesday, May 1st at 6pm. An average of 20 typhoons and dangerous storms arrive in the Philippines from the Pacific Ocean over the eastern seaboard yearly. All governmental and private entities responsible for large segments of the population  should be prepared for these fateful natural disasters and put into force mitigation techniques to reduce potential risk and loss of life.
Information, preparation and understanding of these massive natural disasters is critical for the effective reduction in loss of life and limb. Over 800 people were killed by the eruption, mostly by roofs collapsing under the weight of accumulated and saturated wet ash, a hazard that was largely exacerbated by the simultaneous arrival of Typhoon Yunya. At the writing of this paper, the Taal Volcano is currently exhibiting signs of another eruption. Bad weather, especially during typhoon season, poor maintenance, overloading of vessels -- especially during the Christmas season as families return to their villages for reunions -- and lax enforcement of regulations has brought many tragedies. The need for terrorism suppression and bomb analysis, search techniques and evacuation procedures are critical. Customize disaster supplies to your needs (don’t forget young children, those with special needs, and pets). WASHINGTON -- Amid panic over the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and a second diagnosis in the United States, lawmakers are renewing efforts to bolster biomedical research funding and disaster preparedness.
The Hospital Preparedness Program had been funded at $358 million in fiscal year 2013, but that level was reduced to $255 million thanks to sequestration. Rather, the biggest hurdle is training nurses and health professionals in how to properly handle a contagious patient.
The Hospital Preparedness Program is a critical tool in bolstering the ability of our Nation’s hospitals to respond to a wide variety of public health threats, including emerging infectious diseases such as Ebola or a new strain of influenza.

These comprehensive and timely seminars provide the kind of training needed to better-prepare administrators and first responders.
Alert level two is currently in effect for Taal, which lies only 30 miles south of the Philippine capital city of Manila. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) joined the chorus, urging for more money to be spent on a federal program designed to improve hospital care in the case of a pandemic. Francis Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health, noted that any hospital with an isolation ward could treat an Ebola patient, since the disease is transmitted only through direct contact with bodily fluids or objects contaminated with the virus. The Hospital Preparedness Program assists with this sort of training in the face of public health crises. This program supports hospitals and other stakeholders engaged in planning for a public health emergency, providing dedicated resources for training staff and running drills and exercises.
The death toll from the Ebola epidemic has climbed above 2,000, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on September 5, as it voiced hopes a vaccine could be available in November.
Slagle and representatives will educate people on how to prepare for a natural disaster, such as the tornadoes that struck our region last spring. In a letter to the chair and ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Casey called for reinforcing the Hospital Preparedness Program, a state-federal cooperative administered by the Department of Health and Human Services. Practicing for these scenarios - learning how to safely don and remove personal protective equipment (PPE), establishing appropriate isolation protocols, and ensuring readiness from the first moments of a response through the end of the emergency and a return to normal operations - are all a part of the Hospital Preparedness Program's goals. They will also give information that will help those with disabilities be prepared in the event of a natural disaster.
