Critical Incident Management Cja-560

...Critical Incident Management After this nation was served a tremendous blow that fateful day in September 2001, many agencies were unable to phantom that such a horrible event could take place on American soil. Many agencies didn't know what to do, or who should start in the search and rescue efforts. Because of this event, critical incident had to take center stage and many agencies under the umbrella of criminal justice, including but not limited to, firefighters, Sheriff's, CIA, Homeland Security, and other individuals had to create and follow specific rules to maintain order during an event that causes chaos amongst the citizens of the community. In this paper, we are going to examine what critical incident management is, as well as discussing the scenario-based planning and how it applies to institutional strategic management within criminal justice and private security organizations. Understanding Critical Incident Management Critical Incident is a traumatic event, or the threat of such (within or outside Australia) which has the potential to harm life or well-being and causes extreme stress, fear or injury to the person experiencing or witnessing the event.

The National Incident Management System

...The National Incident Management System Our experiences of domestic terrorist attacks have taught us many things. For one, it showed how the localized structures and preparedness are not sufficient to effectively and efficiently respond to actual events and threats. It showed how the involvement of agencies at various levels of government could have increased response capacity and how a national approach could have ensured a level of preparedness that is proportionate to the levels of threat that may be experienced. Thus, the National Incident Management System developed standards operating procedures or codes to enhance the different areas of incident management, principles, planning, organization, training, logistics and actual practice that have been implemented nationwide as a requisite for obtaining preparedness budgets FEMA. The result was the formation of the Integrated Command System, Multi Agency Support Systems as well as public information systems (NIMS 2008 Page 1). . These systems ensure the harnessing of resources from the different agencies, levels of government and stakeholders in terms of capacities personnel, finances, logistics or technology. It also enables the smooth working relationship and coordination among these entities in jointly responding to incidents under a common framework and organizational structure NIMS Online. This increased the quality of response to much higher levels, especially which current practices are regularly assessed in to...

Incident Command System

...According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website, the Incident Command System (ICS) was developed “in the aftermath of a devastating wildfire in California” (NIMS, 2004) in 1970. During the fire “16 lives were lost, 700 structures were destroyed, and over one-half million acres burned” at the expense of “$18 million per day” (NIMS, 2004) in overall costs. The responding agencies worked as well as they could together but they had many communications issues. Three years after the incident, in 1973 a system known as “FIRESCOPE” (NIMS, 2004) (Firefighting Resources of California Organized for Potential Emergencies) was developed. This is where the ICS and Multi-Agency Coordination System (MACS) were developed. Soon there was “agreed upon ICS common terminology and procedures and conducted limited field-testing of ICS” (NIMS, 2004) the system was used on several fires and adopted by the Los Angeles Fire Department. During the 1980’s it was realized that the ICS could be used on many different large scale incidents to manage personnel and so all responders used the same terminology to create easier communications between responding agencies. Characteristics of the ICS include: • Common Terminology • Modular Organization • Management by Objectives • Reliance on an Incident Action Plan • Manageable Span of Control • Pre-designated Incident Mobilization Center Locations & Facilities • Comprehensive Resource Management • Integrated Communications...

They provide a proactive and systematic approach to guiding all departments, agencies, all levels of government, non-governmental organizations and the private sector to work together in prevention, protection, response, recovery and mitigation of the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location or complexity in order to reduce the loss of life and harm to the environment. The National Incident Management System works together with the National Response Framework. While the NIMS handles the management of incidents, the National Response Framework (NRF) provides the structure and mechanisms for national level policy for incident management (http://www.fema.gov/emergency/nims/AboutNIMS.shtm). According to the Department of Homeland Security website, on February 28, 2003, the President issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-5 which directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop and administer the National Incident Management System (NIMS). It was stated in HSPD-5 that the system will provide a consistent nationwide approach on the Federal, State and Local levels of government in regards to...

Pakistan: Provincial Economic Development

... more opportunities for landless laborers and underemployed farm households. In addition to horticulture, a revised agricultural strategy would seek to expand the livestock sector (principally cattle, goats, and poultry). According to official statistics, the sector’s contribution to provincial GDP is greater than that of crops. This is likely to grow quite rapidly as increasing urbanization in the province has expanded the demand for meat and dairy products. KP is home to about 40 percent of Pakistan’s forests (of which three quarters are in the northern mountains) and about 2.1 million ha of rangeland. Both these are sources of high-value products, but poor land-use rights and weak institutional arrangements have held back the optimal utilization of these assets, particularly in mountain areas. In order to assist the move toward high-value products in the agriculture sector, the authorities will have to take a number of steps. The most important of these will be to: • strengthen the infrastructure, particularly transport and cold-storage facilities, in order to reduce the post-harvest losses of high-value products; • create a research system for best-practice research into commodities and activities (such as rearing sheep for high-quality wool in the high mountain areas and goats suitable for the southern districts of the province; improve fodder production; and enhance natural resource management, especially of forests and rangelands); • improve the linkages between...

...Nathan Bizzle HLS 420-Preparedness, Prevention And Deterrence MAR-MAY 2014 Picture yourself as an FBI agent in the Afred P. Murrah Federal Building in the city of Oklahoma on April 19, 1995. At 9:02 a.m. a bomb is detonated on the North side of the building reducing a third of the building to rubble incinerating dozens of nearby cars and damaging or destroying some 300 nearby buildings. (Terror Hits Home, 2014) As a first responder, it is imperative that you are able to communicate with local law enforcement, medical agencies and government intelligence agencies as quick as possible in order to ensure that medical care is rendered, innocents are rescued, infrastructure is saved and the source of the destruction is apprehended. The only problem is that you have no expertise in the field of emergency management. You are unaware of neither local nor federal operating procedures in response to such a devastating attack. If only there were a uniform set of processes and procedures that enabled all emergency responders at all levels to work together effectively and efficiently in the management of domestic incidents regardless of their size and complexity. Unfortunately for first responders, emergency management personnel and 168 unfortunate souls in Oklahoma City on that fateful day, there wasn’t. Derived from the Homeland Security Presidential Directive-5, the National Incident Management System (NIMS) was developed by the Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge...

... such outcomes. Management skills require consider starting by ancient Egyptians to build pyramids, ancient Indians to build Taj Mahal, ancient Chinese to build their Great Wall of China, the management skills of Mesopotamians to irrigate their land wall their cities, the Romans when building their road, aqueducts and Hadrian’s Wall. All of these man-made construction require large amount of human efforts & therefore organization such as planning, control and coordination. In 1631, Mumtaz Mahal died after giving birth to the couple’s 14th child. The grieving Shah Jahan, known for commissioning a number of impressive structures throughout his reign, ordered the building of a magnificent mausoleum across the Yamuna River from his own royal palace at Agra. Construction began around 1632 and would continue for the next two decades. In all, more than 20,000 workers from India, Persia, Europe and the Ottoman Empire, along with some 1,000 elephants, were brought in to build the mausoleum complex, which is Taj Mahal. Besides that, Qin Dynasty, the emperor Qin Shihuang ordered his labourers to connect these scattered walls and create some new sections, thus forming a Great Wall in northern and central China in the true sense. Later then, the Ming Dynasty further developed the defensive system of the wall and strengthened it on a larger scale. It pushed the wall construction to its highest peak. This great wall was built to defend against attacks from the Yanyun, which is an...

The use of the supercomputer IBM Watson in the Jeopardy American television show was a very good way to test it. Since the show is all about asking the contestants questions from wide range of topics including sciences and history, it will test the ability of Watson to come up with a precise answer. In order to do this, it is fed all the information it needs to participate in the game. The most important part is the process it takes in giving out the answer and the arguments it accompanies it with. (Loftus, 2009). The Jeopardy game provides a good platform since it involves asking question random questions and expects right answers from the participants. Q.2. Is Watson a good example of computer system intelligence similar to humans? Watson demonstrates a very good example of intelligence similar to that of humans. It is able to accept questions, analyse them, determine what they require and give the correct answer.
