    One of the difficulties faced by teams responding to the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is identifying individuals and communities residing in remote areas. Existing maps of these regions either do not exist or are inadequate or outdated. This means that basic data like location of houses, buildings, villages, and roads are not easily accessible, and case finding and contact tracing can be extremely difficult. To help aid the outbreak response effort, volunteers from around the world are using an open-source online mapping platform called OpenStreetMap (OSM) to create detailed maps and…

    Poland, Lubin April 25th, 8:04 We’ve survived the night. Fortunately, there were no more quakes, however the electricity has been cut off. As dense dust felt away and the sun rays brightened the ruins of our city, I wasn’t able to believe my own eyes. I was rendered speechless by the scale of destruction. As soon as it was brighter outside, we went onto the flat roof of my house to look around our neighbourhood. We had to beware of the wide crack which had seriously weakened it. The two blocks of flats opposite my place had been completely annihilated. Only bare supporting walls remained…

      Making the decision to volunteer in an Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in West Africa shows a lot of courage and takes support from friends, loved ones, and other healthcare workers. It also requires the knowledge and skills to safely treat very sick patients in a challenging environment. CDC understands that healthcare workers preparing to deploy to West Africa need to know the infection prevention and control principles necessary for working in an ETU. To help meet this need, CDC offers an introductory training course at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Center for…

It is time to dust off last year’s resolutions and come up with a new list of things to accomplish in 2015.

If you don’t have an emergency…

    By Kristyna Culp, MBA In hospitals around the country, paramedics are often viewed as outsiders to emergency departments’ processes. But does this tendency obscure opportunities to improve patient outcomes? Today, some researchers are seeking to streamline communication between paramedics and nurses to explore new opportunities to deliver better care. A Shared Instrument The Medical Director of the Winnipeg Fire and Paramedics Service, Dr. Rob Grierson, has led exploratory work on the topic. Grierson hypothesized that educating the city’s paramedics on a standardized triage instrument…

    By: Lillian McDonald Tech savviness is a hallmark of the millennial generation. They are the first generation to replace landlines, crayons and typewriters with smartphones, laptops, and tablets. They have phased out the communication, education, and work processes of the baby boomer generation in favor of faster more technologically advanced solutions. There is no doubt this rapid adoption of technology is significantly changing the speed and accuracy of how information is processed and shared. Emergency education and communication departments are particularly benefitting from new…

    Poland, Lubin 21st of April 2017 18:41 (Zombie apocalypse knocks at your door) I’ve been searching for some pen for a long time… Glass cut my hands, but I have to write something — this may be the only thing left after my death. Adrian, lost in despair, is laying on the floor in the room next to mine. He’s shocked, cannot say even a single word. I’ve never seen a man turning on the waterworks and shaking so hard. As far as I remember, he has always been a kind of a tough guy. I wouldn’t like to be in his shoes. He may have lost his family… Exactly eleven minutes past six. In a…

    Poland, Lubin 24th of April 2017, 13.32 I found a while to put some emotions on paper. I hope that I don’t loose my mind. On the streets I can see people leading normal, usual lives. They make their ways to work, go shopping – nothing extraordinary or suspicious drew my attention. There is only one place which makes me think about it over and over again. While I was on the way to huge, local hardware shop to order a new fence, I intentionally stopped near Abraham Kossakowski’s mansion. Billionaire’s house, situated on the suburbs, connotes a construction site right now. That’s what…

A few strange situations occurred in the meantime — I am going to describe them later. Right now, I need to drink another coffee on the roof of my house. In half an hour, workers will come and insert a new front door. This time I wasn’t eager to skimp on it – I paid for a decent brand. An old, wooden,…

    Iran, Isfahan, Unofficial Military Unit 21st of April 2017, 7.21 Keira Calder, clutching her knees, huddled in her cell — she tried to maintain the conversation with professor Mansour. The last to lose her hope: — We have to just try to get away from here. We will be death in two days. —What do you mean? How do you want to prevent from it? —Resignation is his voice were overwhelming. — I’m gonna try to seduce one of the guards and then smash his head with pillar from the bed. — Keira… What if you don’t manage to do it?
