Allocate Taxes for Emergency Supplies

A small percent of income taxes should be allocated to emergency supplies for the community where the person resides. There will always be those who don't think ahead. Technically, this may already be done, but perhaps a box like contributing to the presidential campaign can be used instead.

SSN protection by Federal Government

I suggest that the federal government take charge of identity theft technology. Identity theft is a major contributor to the economic loss of power by our citizens and businesses. As it stand right now identity theft protection can only be purchased through private vendors. The federal government gave us our identity through our SSN, they have the computer wherewithal l to monitor all of our transactions and our taxes. ...more »

Evacuating islands

My idea would be for islands that have been hit by a disaster. Commander a cruise ship. Work out ahead of time a plan with the cruise lines that in the event an island is being hit with such a great disaster that the population must be evacuated, to be able to use a cruise ship for the evacuation. Cruise ships are floating cities and have everything you need to house hundreds of evacuees.

Ecaps

I suggest that Ecaps be used to generate a 40-1 at FEMA HQ. The current paper process is cumbersome and slow.

Asst Dir of Preparedness

I have worked at a state health dept in preparedness for 4 years and the biggest problem I have seen is a lack of coordination at the federal level. The various agencies working on preparedness seem very unclear about who is responsible for what. This causes duplication in some areas and no effort in others. This is a waste of time and money and ultimately will impact reponse to disasters. We have worked hard at the ...more »

Preparedness Capabilities and Assessments

Capability and Gaps

I am currently writing a doctoral dissertation on emergency terrorism preparedness in school districts. The objective is to assess the availability, capability and gaps. Currently, research data shows the lack of community/citizen integration in what the school districts are doing. Other than local emergency responders, how should the neighbors be involved, what kinds of communications need to go out to them to avoid ...more »

Individual/Community Preparedness

phulse

I suggest that you work cooperatively with local emergency service providers on preplanning efforts. Most local fire departments already have a preplanning process in place.

Increase everyone's awareness of the post disaster brain

Work to increase the coping resources for the population by increasing the population's understanding of what emotions are in the hours, days and weeks after a traumatic experience. The harm from disasters can be maximized by people not understanding the source of their anger/impulsiveness.
