Frontex, EFCA and EMSA present the results of the pilot project „Creation of a European coastguard function”

The Closing Workshop of the pilot project „Creation of a European coastguard function” gathered more than 110 participants from various European and national entities at the premises of the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) in Lisbon. During the event the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) and EMSA jointly presented the project results.

The 18 months pilot project was launched in January 2016 in order to provide the test bed for the co-operation mechanism proposed by the Commission within the framework of the European border and coastguard package.

The Executive Directors of the three European agencies agreed that the project had demonstrated that there was greater effectiveness when the agencies worked together. The sharing of information, combined use of surveillance capabilities, multipurpose operations can better support the national authorities of European Member States when implementing coast guard functions.

In the framework of the project the three Agencies explored and tested ways to further enhance their cooperation in four areas:

  • sharing of information generated by fusing and analysing vessel movement and earth observation data
  • providing surveillance and communication services based on state-of-the-art technology
  • capacity building
  • capacity sharing including multipurpose operations and the sharing of assets and capabilities across sectors and borders

The enhanced cooperation among EMSA, EFCA and Frontex will enable them to support in an effective and cost-efficient way the activities of more than 300 civilian and military authorities in the EU Member States responsible for carrying out coastguard functions in a wide range of areas such as maritime safety, security, search and rescue, border control, fisheries control, customs control, general law enforcement and environmental protection.

Energy efficiency benchmarking: Coming to a B.C. building near you?

VANCOUVER / COAST SALISH TERRITORY — Municipalities in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland want large buildings to be required to track their energy and water consumption, and to report this data to the province every year.

The Lower Mainland Local Government Association recently passed a City of Richmond-sponsored resolution calling on the B.C. government to make energy benchmarking and annual reporting mandatory for buildings larger than a certain size (such as 50,000 square feet). In September, the Union of B.C. Municipalities will consider a similar resolution at its annual convention in Vancouver.

On June 14, the Pembina Institute will host Building Energy Benchmarking in B.C., a timely webinar featuring speakers from the City of Seattle, Real Property Association of Canada, City of Richmond, and Canada Green Building Council. An audience Q&A will follow the presentations.

Benchmarking allows property owners to compare the energy performance of their buildings with historical use and similar buildings. This, in turn, helps owners identify opportunities to save energy and water, and thereby save money on utility bills and reduce carbon pollution.

This low-cost, market-based approach is already being used in 25 North American cities, Ontario, Washington, and California, and numerous jurisdictions in the U.K., Europe, and Asia. The resolution passed by Lower Mainland municipal officials asks for building energy data to be made available to local governments to inform their climate change programs.

The public and media are invited to attend Building Energy Benchmarking in B.C. via web or telephone (free of charge). Online registration is required.

Building Energy Benchmarking in B.C.

Date: Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Time: 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (PDT)

Register: pembina.org/benchmarking

Panellists:

  • Duane Jonlin, energy code and energy conservation advisor, City of Seattle
  • Brooks Barnett, manager of government relations and policy, Real Property Association of Canada
  • Brendan McEwen, sustainability manager, City of Richmond
  • Akua Schatz, director of advocacy and development, Canada Green Building Council

Texas Conducts Large-Scale Hurricane Exercise

Residents Reminded to Prepare for Hurricane Season Now

AUSTIN –The Texas Department of Public Safety’s (DPS) Texas Division of Emergency Management today hosted representatives from approximately 30 agencies at the Texas State Operations Center in Austin for a large-scale hurricane exercise, dubbed Hurricane Charlie. The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), along with the state agencies and partner organizations with the Texas Emergency Management Council, are conducting the week-long hurricane exercise with various local officials and federal partners to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, which began June 1 and continues through November 30. DPS is also reminding Texans to make plans now to protect themselves and their families before a storm develops.

„This week, our local, state and federal emergency management leaders are conducting a large-scale hurricane exercise to bolster our preparedness efforts for this year’s hurricane season,” said TDEM Chief Nim Kidd. „Early preparation is critical to saving lives when a hurricane or severe weather occurs, so we are asking the public to do just that – get ready now.”

The Hurricane Charlie exercise enables local, state, federal and private sector emergency management partners to practice evacuation, sheltering and continuity of operations plans. The mock Category 3 hurricane will create a 20-foot storm surge and take aim at the Texas coast, ultimately making landfall just west of Galveston – and accordingly, numerous local agencies in the area are also participating in this exercise.

All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes or tropical storms. It is possible for a storm to severely impact our state, even prior to or without making direct landfall in Texas. Additionally, the rain bands associated with a tropical system have an extremely wide reach, so monitoring changing weather conditions during hurricane season is critically important for all Texans.

Here are several measures residents can take now to prepare for potential storms:

  • Assemble an emergency kit that includes essential documents, supplies and provisions.
  • Review hurricane evacuation maps, and select a route for you and your family.
  • Plan how all family members and pets will evacuate safely.
  • Consider any special needs for individuals with disabilities or the elderly.
  • Stay informed about changing weather conditions in and around your area.

If you or someone you know might need assistance during a disaster, please register for the State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry (STEAR), a free registry that provides local emergency planners and responders with additional information about needs in their communities. To register, contact 2-1-1 Texas, the state’s free 24-hour helpline. No matter where you live in Texas, you can dial 2-1-1 or (877) 541-7905 for community resources.

Residents are encouraged to review their property’s flood risk and current insurance coverage, and to consider whether a separate flood policy should be part of their home protection plan. For more information, visit http://www.tdi.texas.gov/takefive/flood-insurance.html.
