first_imgLike a bus with giant mushrooms growing out of its top, a Mobile Command Operations Vehicle (MCOV) sat outside the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Joint Field Office, its roof covered with satellite dishes. Inside, a dozen volunteers sat at desks taking calls from Vermonters all over the state who were seeking help in the aftermath of the massive flooding that occurred earlier in the week from Tropical Storm Irene”Is he stranded in the house?” one volunteer asked. “Here’s a number you can call for emergency shelter,” another said. “Is it just your basement flooded?” asked a third volunteer, raising her voice to be heard above the constantly ringing phones.Welcome to Vermont’s new 211 call center, courtesy of FEMA.”After the first day of flooding, everybody was out there on the airwaves instructing people to call 211,” said Mary Ellen Mendl, Director of United Way of Vermont. “But we only had six lines and seven staff people who could answer them and at times the spike in calls reached 450 in one hour.”Swamped by the volume, many people had to leave messages or could not get through at all. “On Monday alone, we returned 173 calls for the people who were able to leave a message,” Mendl said.First launched in 2005 in Vermont by the United Way to provide referrals for basic needs such as food, housing and other resources in times of crisis, 211 has now become synonymous with immediate help after a disaster, but was being overwhelmed by callers dealing with the floods.With FEMA already on the ground, state emergency management officials asked if there was a solution at hand. Joe Malloe, FEMA’s Communication Unit Leader for FEMA Incident Management Assistance Team, obliged.By reconfiguring the MCOV’s communication system so that Vermont’s 211 phone lines could be routed through the vehicle’s satellite links, Malloe was able to increase the phone line capability to 17.”We are here to support the state in its recovery efforts, and our people and resources are theirs now,” said FEMA’s Federal Coordinating Officer, Craig Gilbert. “The fact that our technical people could devise a solution so quickly really speaks to their skill and dedication.” Vermonters who wish to volunteer to staff 211 lines may call the governor’s office at (802) 828-3333.The 211 call service is not the same as FEMA’s number for registration for federal assistance.

first_imgNZ Herald 13 Feb 2012Debate on street prostitution is about revive at Parliament. A bill that will allow Auckland Council to ban street prostitution in specific places is to be considered by the local government select committee. Other city councils including Christchurch are expected to show interest and may seek to have the same powers applied generally. An earlier 2005 bill, relating to Manukau City Council, was voted down in 2006 after it emerged from strongly divided select committee hearings. Former Manurewa MP George Hawkins sponsored the local bill at the request of Manukau to address street prostitution near residential areas. After its defeat, he introduced another one in 2010 just before the Auckland Super City was formed. Auckland Council has told the local government select committee it wants to take over the bill, and its jurisdiction is greater Auckland. National MPs supported Mr Hawkins’ original bill. The local government and environment committee will consider the bill and submissions close on February 29.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10785168Prostitute ban could end residents’ woesONE News 14 Feb 2012It is hoped a Bill before Parliament will bring an end to years of torment for residents affected by prostitution in south Auckland. The Local Government and Environment Committee is considering the Bill which would see prostitution banned from certain areas of Manukau, like Hunter’s Corner. “We want to impose what is similar to a liquor ban, to ban sex workers from those areas,” George Wood from Auckland Council told TV ONE’s Breakfast. “The problem has gone on for years, these people have been there 30 or 40 years, elderly people living in a residential street who have prostitutes sitting on their front fence at night raucously calling out to clients.” If the Bill is passed it would mean fines of up to $2000 for prostitutes caught soliciting in banned areas, and the police would have the power to stop their clients’ cars and arrest them too.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/prostitute-ban-could-end-residents-woes-4720670last_img read more
