Here is the discussion board question
1. Review and answer PPT presentation and questions.
2. Through local and electronic research, identify the “responsible governmental agency” charged with protection / mitigation of a major, region wide hazardous materials release in your locale. Post the contact information, area (air/water/land/etc) of responsibility, and region of response. Write a brief report of that agency’s resources for preparedness, response, and mitigation and submit.
3. Research and review Project Bio-Shield. Provide a brief overview of the project, its purpose, and use in densely populated areas.
## here is one of my friend example to be clear for you, but please do not do the same answer
1 Methamphetamine has two common methods and somehow differs. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant that effects the central nervous system and is also known as "Meth". Meth has been classified by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as a schedule II Stimulant, which makes it legally available only through a none refillable prescription. The two common methods are; Red Phosphorous and Birch method.
2.The Red Phosphorous has a chemical reduction reaction and is used by Mexican super laboratories known as Mexican Ice. Whereas, the Birch method is a chemical reduction to convert pseudoepherine in base form and is prevalent throughout the Midwest because of the ease of access to a raw material often used by farmers as fertilizer.
3. The common ingredience associated with meth Lab are: Acetone, alcohol, Lye, antifreeze, iodine, lithium, Anhydrous ammonia, Pseudoephedrine , sulpheric acid, and chloroform.
4.When entering a scene, the first responder may work directly to address the consequences of the disaster, often at a task level. For example, fire fighters, job is to put their bodies between citizens and threats. They perform the task for which they are trained. Fire fighters act in the preparedness and response phases to execute very specific duties relative to the threat at an incident scene. Fire fighters address the full range of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. They also coordinate the efforts of first responders during the response phase as they emphasize the planning and coordination that characterizes integrated emergency management systems (IEMS) (Perry, & Lindell., 2007).
5. The indicators of an active "Process" Meth smell like that of: paint thinner, antifreeze, plastic soda bottle with holes or tube at the top, acetone, drain cleaner or reddish stained coffee filters.emergencies
6. The federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) represent a small part of the long history of federal Government participation in emergency management. Though they are the best known brand of federal emergency assistance, but it is just one member of a much larger team. They play an important roles in preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and mitigating disasters. FEMA's Has always continued to expand their capabilities in the first line of defense for and response to disasters and emergencies. With renewed emphasis on engaging the private sector, non-governmental entities, and the general public. Has brought more collective experienced and more coordinated approach to emergency management and the power of team work. retrieved from, The Federal Emergency Management Agency: Publication 1 (2016).
7. Brief overview of " Project Bio-Shield"
In the wake of the fall 2001 anthrax letter attacks, protecting against future bioterrorism attack became a top priority in the U.S government, resulted in the creation of Bio shield. The efforts was intended to make available effective vaccines and treatment against agents like anthrax, botulinum toxin, Ebola, and plague. yet to this day, the strategic national stockpile-a respository of medicines for use in a public health emergency has no doses of a next generation anthrax vaccines or drug to defend against Ebola or plague. No major phemaceutical companies have supplied Project BioShield, and the small biotect companies involved often have had difficulty with large-scale manufacturing and regulatory issues.
