Hurricane Floyd September 1999; This Site Launched December 2000

About PRR .com .net .org Header

The turning point arrived in September 1999 with Hurricane Floyd when the consulting practice providing technology services to some of the world's most well-respected and admired organizations since 1989 was flooded out.

Hurricane Floyd, September 14, 1999

Hurricane Floyd was one of the first major storms visualized by the EVL. This image from September 14, 1999 shows the storm as it moves up the U.S. East Coast before making landfall in North Carolina.

Commercial grade water pumps and industrial wet vacs worked as long as the power held.

But once the electricity failed, there was nothing we could do.

 

 

No one expected this.

For one thing, the building sat high on a hill, a seemingly ideal spot if one wanted to avoid suffering through a flood.

But in this case, because uphill property owners regraded their site without regard for storm runoff, the torrential rain that fell on higher ground flowed past our building on its way down to lower elevation.

This left us sitting in the middle of a river.

The water seeped in, worked down along the foundation, and came into the office through the walls and floor.

And even though the regrading set the stage for flooding, the property owners who had done the work and the local building officials claimed "Act of God" and took no responsibility.

 
Unfortunately, we didn't have flood insurance — though even if we had demanded it, by law our insurance agent couldn't have sold it to us because the building wasn't in a flood area.

So much for those things that "could never happen."

And Lesson One in the danger of a false sense of security.

 

 
Because we had a running start against the worst of the floodwater we were able in our Immediate Response Phase to move computers, servers, files, and more to a higher floor and so ultimately our equipment loss was minimal.

But the Business Interruption following Hurricane Floyd was another story.

And the Long Term Recovery Phase that followed Hurricane Floyd was a brutally difficult time.

 

 
But Hurricane Floyd was the crash course that opened up the field of view on the field of Public Health and Safety.

 
And this new perspective over time delivered insight into critically important subjects including risk identification, assessment, management, and communication, business continuity, community planning and development, building code enforcement, natural resource stewardship, disaster and trauma response and recovery, and so much more.

We sought out advisement as to whether – and if so, how – technical skills developed over more than a decade working with world-class organizations could be applied within the Public Health and Safety field and we were greatly encouraged.

We undertook (and went on to complete) Master's-level engineering coursework to gain knowledge and begin developing Subject Matter Expertise.

And we had the privilege of learning from and alongside Subject Matter Experts whose passion for and commitment to the multidisciplinary field of Public Health and Safety were both enlightening and profoundly inspiring.

National Hurricane Center

Preliminary Report
Hurricane Floyd 7-17 September, 1999

National Hurricane Center
18 November, 1999

Updated 9 September 2014
for U.S. damage


"Floyd was a large and intense Cape Verde hurricane that .... neared the threshold of category five intensity on the Saffir/Simpson Hurricane Scale ... and produced a flood disaster of immense proportions in the eastern United States, ..."
 

But then — on September 11, 2001 the whole world changed.

And what it meant to be – and what became and what remains required in order to be – a professional and offer services in the field of Public Health and Safety and in particular in the New York City Metropolitan Area changed.

 

 

 

 

And so to be of the highest and best service we could be under those circumstances, we pulled the passwords off of key high traffic areas and we allowed people to freely access information so that they could obtain the support they needed during that difficult time.

We worked to ensure that we had the bandwidth to serve the visitors who were coming to the site.

We continued with our "zero advertising" operating model.

[There has never been advertising on this website and we intend to continue with this operating model going forward.]

We rolled back development and we launched a new Mission Statement for the website that stated simply, "Just keep it running and don't break it."

And much more.

 

 

And over the course of these 17 years, this website has served millions (upon millions) of pages to visitors from nearly 130 countries.

Focus shifted to establishing a base of operations from which the broad range of programming that had been developed could be offered; in 2002 an ideal property located in an idyllic region halfway between New York City and Boston and within commuting distance of Albany, the New York State Capital, was purchased and site development including extensive architectural design and structural and civil engineering sitework began.

And in 2002 the work itself further evolved when – very literally – "opportunity" turned up on the doorstep and with this, over time the frames of reference opened up further.

Risk identification, assessment, management, and communication expanded to include far more comprehensive and fuller scale Threat Modeling.

 
With this, our efforts in the area of Public Health and Safety evolved toward addressing deeply entrenched systemic issues and in particular where these occur and their effects are most acutely felt at the 1:1 grassroots level and in extremely vulnerable communities – both rural and urban – and among populations among whom un- and underemployment are the norm and so very many live entire lifetimes at risk.

 

 
It has been and remains a substantial, substantive, endeavor.

 

 

 

 

This at the time and in an important sense appeared to be a drastic shift in focus from the safety planning and disaster preparedness, response, and recovery work we had begun — all of which was far more attuned to the inner- and interworkings of the Built Environment Systems of Systems that we rely upon and in particular where the Built Environment functions within while it impacts the Natural Environment and in particular including extreme weather-related and other discrete manmade disaster- and traumatic-effect events.

But in the remarkable way life works, what was found over time was that

▮ "disaster and trauma events" no matter what the cause; and

▮ unlawful criminal activities; and

▮ objective-standard unethical activities; and

▮ "Underground Economies"

have key common characteristics – and key among a number of at that time unanticipated but since then in empirical study reproduced and proven iteratively to be foundationally consistent and with broad application.

And, as a result, our methods for conducting and our capability for engaging and delivering on highly complex Root Cause and S.W.O.T. Analyses and Problem Definition with sound and fully scalable PACE[R] Solution Sets and more developed further.

 

Our Threat Models have continued to evolve from this complex-and/but-never-complicated foundation and remain in context of comprehensive and long-range focused S.W.O.T. Analyses to ensure that open clear objective standard metrics for success have the greatest probability of success and the strongest potential for withstanding the normal within-objectively-acceptable-range necessary tweaks that accompany the rollout and launch of any true invention

NOUN
tweaks (plural noun)
a fine adjustment to a mechanism or system.

synonyms
adjustment modification alteration change refinement

© Oxford University Press

while standing ready to evolve in order to meet any far more serious unintended consequencesand/but/plus with all of this, also remaining poised to address any possible retaliatory responses with new and evolving follow-on threats.

And with all of this, maintaining the necessary vigilance and with an abundance of caution remaining focused on the hoped for end state so that the objective standard Highest and Best – the most deeply hoped-for "What" – has the best chance to be not only initially established but also to remain well in place and be allowed to grow and thrive over time.

What is the sequence of events in the criminal justice system?

The flowchart of the events in the criminal justice system (shown in the diagram) updates the original chart prepared by the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice in 1967. Adapted from The challenge of crime in a freesociety. This revision, a result of the Symposium on the 30th anniversary of the President's Commission, was prepared by the Bureau of Justice Statistics in 1997. The chart summarizes the most common events in the criminal and juvenile justice systems including entry into the criminal justice system, prosecution and pretrial services, adjudication, sentencing and sanctions, and corrections.

But the privilege of working with Federal, State, and Local agencies and community leaders and dedicated health and safety professionals and nonprofit organizations and alongside some profoundly insightful and deeply dedicated and truly inspiring mentors, colleagues, clients, advisors, and teammates over the years has led to some wonderful moments and milestones that are truly cherished ...

"The shorter the ruler, the longer the line."
Dr Benoit Mandelbrot

 

 

 
We developed highly complex – and happily not-at-all-complicated – methods and tools for assessment and analysis and program development and project management.

We continued in our efforts to develop sound, stable, scalable models for program and service delivery — which for example include highly advanced EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs) and much more.

We have much-expanded foundational original research.

And have over now more than two decades of active rigorous multidisciplinary and highly complex interdisciplinary field study weathered the "anecdotal" dismissivei.e./e.g. and including:

▮ the "clever" and shockingly disingenuous "[They] have no complaints so [they] are taking no complaints";

and

▮ the truly horrifying "Let's set aside legalities and talk practically";

and

▮ more [ad nauseum ad infinitum]

– and have brick-by-bit-by-brick built the foundation of the empirical.

And we have assembled what are now extensive case studies that are being prepared for rigorous peer review with the goal of publication to advance the corpus of knowledge in support of successfully – by clear open objective standard metrics – addressing the threats to Health and Safety that we each and every one individually as well as we in community face in our extremely complex, dynamic-and-rapidly-changing [note: not redundant] world and with "success" metrics that include scaling granular Quality of Life and Standard of Living objective standard metrics over time.

 

And when we say "time" we do mean both:

▮ the approximately 31,536,000 seconds per year

and

▮ the decades building toward our human life expectancies now extending well beyond a century.

[and, Yes: Very IRL and Very, Very Srsly.]

And the work itself remains deeply resonant.

We have seen repeatedly how one's working diligently to address pressing and too often seemingly intractable problems that pose tremendous threats to Quality of Life and Standard of Living – no matter how painfully difficult or intensely challenging the work, the experience, may be – often bears wonderful fruit that one simply cannot anticipate.

 

 

 

And so now – at long last – it's time for Next Steps.

And these Next Steps include bringing the website out of its state of "suspended animation" begun in the immediate aftermath of September 11 and commencing with the work of integrating all that has been brought to light and has evolved since.

It is a massive endeavor.

"[A] man named Hausdorff in 1919 introduced a number which was just a mathematical joke, and I found that this number was a good measurement of roughness. When I first told it to my friends in mathematics they said, 'Don't be silly. It's just something [silly].' Well actually, I was not silly. The great painter Hokusai knew it very well. ... He did not know the mathematics; it didn't yet exist. And he was Japanese who had no contact with the West. ... I could speak of that for a long time." (Mandelbrot, 2010)

And it is a profoundly meaningful embarkation in that this is the first revamp of PrepareRespondRecover.com since the website was formally launched in 2000.

 


 

Much of the content – other than updating broken links or refreshing content areas to adapt to key changes over time – is exactly as it was when the site was originally developed and launched 17 years ago.

 
And although 17 years as a timeline was neither anticipated nor hoped for, on some deep level we are very happy to share that despite some daunting challenges along the way, we have had tremendously valuable real-world-over-time experiences by which we have developed a far greater insight into and appreciation for the Scope and the Scale – and at all levels – of the work of Public Health and Safetya field about which we are absolutely passionate and to which we are absolutely dedicated.

And in tandem, not only have the tools advanced for providing services to aid in preparedness and mitigation and in the event of disaster or trauma aid and support in the response and recovery of affected persons but critically importantly so also have the knowledge of and the insight into how to utilize these tools – or not so that both systemic and exceptional weaknesses, threats, and unintended consequences can be effectively addressed.

 
And speaking candidly, it was worth the very (very) many 100-hour and 400-hour "days" ...

 

 

... and the 17 year wait.
