Smart Phones and Citizen Scientists

Smart Phones and Citizen Scientists Can Help Streamline Disaster Relief
During a disaster, it's often the people in the middle of it who have the best information, the best video and photos of what's happening, and that information can be a huge benefit to those just entering the scene to help with relief efforts. Yet it is tough to get such data out to those who need it during relief efforts, including vital information that scientists and relief workers have to have but which the average person doesn't know to provide.
Jules White is an assistant professor at Virginia Tech, and he has come up with the idea of a cell phone app that can transmit the vital data collected by the phone's owner to search and rescue workers after a disaster like an earthquake or flood.

Preparing For the Active Shooter

Preparing For the Active Shooter
Everywhere you look in education, people are doing drills – basketball drills, math drills, spelling drills, football drills, and so on. And they are doing those drills for one primary reason – to get better at whatever activity is involved. Repetition and practice are always keys to success.
A few weeks ago, a school district superintendent said this to me: “You know, we are good at running fire drills because we’ve all been doing them since kindergarten. But, we’re not good at any other kind of emergency drills because we rarely do them. We come up with great-looking plans that sit on shelves and gather dust.”

Disaster Resource Center
A disaster is frightening to children and adults, alike. It is important to explain the event in words children can understand. Adults should also acknowledge the frightening parts of the disaster when talking with a child about it. Minimizing the danger will not end a child's concerns. Several factors affect a child's response to a disasters.
The way children see and understand their parents' responses are very important. Children are aware of their parents' worries most of the time, but they are particularly sensitive during a crisis. Parents should admit their concerns to their children, and also stress their abilities to cope with the disaster.
