TIEMS Task Force Groups

TIEMS latest initiative, which was launched by TIEMS China Chapter and discussed during TIEMS annual conference in France in 2013, is to establish TIEMS Task Force groups.

Each Task Force Group would comprise qualified TIEMS scientists in different fields. These task groups could cooperate with UNOCHA, and/or with local emergency management government agencies and directly join to the operation during the emergency issues occurred.

TIEMS China Chapter suggested, based on their experience in China, the following Task Force groups to be established:

1. Disaster Integrated Risk Assessment Task Force

2. Disaster Scenario Simulation and Preparedness Task Force

3. Emergency Response and On-site Life Rescue Task Force

4. Early Warning and Decision-making Sub-Task Force

5. On-site Communication, Commanding and Coordination Sub-Task Force

6. Emergency Medical Care and Public Health Task Force

7. Emergency Engineer Rescue and Equipments Task Force

8. Allocation of Homeless People and Disaster Recovery Task Force

9. Emergency management and SAR Theory Task Force

10. High-Technology (Robots) and Applications Task Force

11. Disaster Cases Analysis and Database Construction Task Force

12. Training, Exercise and Certification Task Force

This initiative was further discussed during TIEMS China Chapter Symposium on Emergency Medical Care in Guangzhou, China during 15-17, Nov. 2013, and the following two task force groups was establshed during the conference:

  1. Emergency Medical Care and Public Health Task Force Group (TEMC)
  2. Training, Exercise and Certification Task Force
