Have posted a discussion which could have some interest to some!

Title: The Cloud and Smartphones

...

"It is easy to think of other applications for CBMEN, particularly in disaster response. In many circumstances -- hurricanes, tornados, and wildfires, for example -- communications infrastructure frequently has been damaged or destroyed. Emergency responders from police and firefighters to EMTs and National Guard troops could use their smartphones to quickly establish communications networks and share critical information."

Disaster response: how do we build trust between Federal agencies, first responders and the public in order to effectively share information?

 

Come discuss this Sep 13 & 14 in Springfield, VA with Federal agencies and first responders http://www.afei.org/events/1A07/Pages/default.aspx

  One great exhibit at the 2011 Joint Warfighter conference was TIDES ( http://www.star-tides.net/ ) working out of Nadtional Defense University - part of the DoD.

 

    Learn how to recover and live even after a major disaster capable of wiping out all infrastructure. Not Katrina but worse - hurricane Andrew. Andrew wiped building off their foundation leaving nothing but blocks and blocks of bare foundations. Not even trash to build a temporary shelter from in some areas. No gas, no grill, no cell phone, no water. Worse - no street signs to even know where one was.

 

    Anyone who can recover from that can live after a disaster. Is this hard? Some groups teach kids to do it. A thousand strangers come to an open field for three or four days. The only things they are given are directions,  a parking spot a short distance from the campsite, an address in the main campsite, access to a community water tank on wheels, a handful of port-a-poties, access to the common bullitin board, medical station and an area for worship. Cell phone coverage is also available - no electricity, running water or telephones.

   The kids and parents hike their stuff in,  set up camp, cook, clean dishes, get along and have a great time with a religious service on Saturday or Sunday - rain, heavy rain, strong wids (15 mph+ constant) or shine. High heat and humidity optional.

   TIDES just makes all this easier. They show how to cook without fuel or store bought stoves.

    Stop by TIDES, learn and add your knowledge.
