HDER PROGRAM PILOT PROJECT
  • HDER Program Goal Provide surplus radiological
    detection instrumentation and other equipment, as
    well as training and long term technical support,
    to emergency responder agencies nationwide to
    enhance their domestic preparedness capabilities.
  • HDER Program Pilot Project is intended to
    validate the programmatic and management aspects
    of the broader program prior to its
    implementation.

HEALTH PHYSICS SOCIETY SUPPORT TO HDER PILOT
  • ODP is pleased to announce the partnership with
    HPS for the HDER Program Pilot Project!
  • ODP is providing 40,000 grant to HPS for
  • Training of HPS volunteers at todays session.
  • Long-term technical support to the 10
    metropolitan areas selected for the HDER Program
    Pilot Project.

5
HEALTH PHYSICS SOCIETY SUPPORT TO HDER PILOT
  • HPS Executive Secretariat role
  • Grant management
  • Reimbursement of local HPS chapter expenses
  • Coordination of local HPS chapter activities
  • Financial and programmatic record keeping
  • Reporting to DOJ

6
HEALTH PHYSICS SOCIETY SUPPORT TO HDER PILOT
  • Local HPS Chapter role
  • Provide long-term technical support to HDER
    Program Pilot Project participants that includes
    1) annual calibration and maintenance of HDER
    equipment 2) refresher training and, 3) serving
    as a local source of expertise.

HEALTH PHYSICS SOCIETY SUPPORT TO HDER PILOT
  • What should happen after today
  • The local HPS chapter representative should
    initiate contact with their designated state
    representative (ODP will supply the necessary
    contact information shortly).
  • Discuss the availability of available long-term
    technical support services.
  • If service is requested, develop a formal service
    delivery plan with a time line (this plan should
    be immediately provided to the HPS Executive
    Secretariat).
  • If no service is requested, this information
    should also be immediately provided to the HPS
    Executive Secretariat.

HEALTH PHYSICS SOCIETY SUPPORT TO HDER PILOT
  • Local HPS chapters may recover costs of providing
    long-term technical support.
  • Allowable costs include
  • Travel (mileage related to use of personal
    vehicles, parking, tolls, subsistence, etc.)
  • Communications (telephone, fax, etc.)
  • Equipment procurement (batteries, check sources,
    spare parts, etc.)

9
HEALTH PHYSICS SOCIETY SUPPORT TO HDER PILOT
  • Reimbursement of expenses
  • As services are delivered, each local chapter
    will request reimbursement for allowable costs
    from the HPS Executive Secretariat.
  • The HPS Executive Secretariat will review these
    requests to ensure that all costs are allowable,
    and then reimburse the local chapter from the
    grant.

10
ANNUAL CALIBRATION AND MAINTENANCE
  • If requested, local HPS volunteers will provide
    annual calibration and maintenance on HDER
    equipment and instrumentation in their pilot
    project area.
  • Provision of this service will likely require
    procurement of batteries and check sources.
  • These costs may be recovered through the ODP
    grant.
  • If spare parts are also required, a determination
    should be made as to the cost effectiveness of
    repair versus replacement through the HDER
    program.

11
ANNUAL CALIBRATION AND MAINTENANCE
  • To assist, the Oak Ridge National Recycle Center
    (TORNRC) maintains a substantial inventory of
    spare parts for this equipment.
  • Local HPS volunteers are encouraged to make use
    of this resource should spare parts be required.
  • Parts will be made available by TORNRC at no
    cost, although shipping and handling charges will
    apply.
  • TORNRC Contact Information
  • J. Don McFarland
  • The Oak Ridge National Recycle Center (TORNRC)
  • (865) 241-3525
  • Email jdm1_at_tornrc.com

12
ANNUAL CALIBRATION AND MAINTENANCE
  • Should a spare part not be available through
    TORNRC, ODP is also providing a contact list for
    major vendors of radiation detection
    instrumentation.

13
REFRESHER TRAINING
  • If requested, local HPS volunteers will provide
    refresher training on the HDER equipment in their
    pilot project area.
  • This refresher training may take place only AFTER
    the DPETAP TAV visit to the metropolitan area.
  • DPETAP will include the local HPS volunteers in
    the TAV and provide them with the training
    materials during the TAV visit.
  • These training materials must be used as the
    basis for any refresher training.

SERVING AS A LOCAL SOURCE OF EXPERTISE
  • If requested, local HPS volunteers will serve as
    source of expert information for emergency
    responders in their pilot project area.
  • HPS volunteers should be prepared to answer
    questions that the emergency responders and the
    SAA may have regarding HDER equipment and
    response to incidents involving dispersion of
    radioactive materials.

17
SERVING AS A LOCAL SOURCE OF EXPERTISE
  • To assist, ODP is also providing copies of a
    National Council on Radiation Protection and
    Measurements (NCRP) report entitled Management of
    Terrorist Events Involving Radioactive Material.
  • Additional copies may be purchased from NCRP
    at
  • NCRP Publications
  • 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 800
  • Bethesda, Maryland 20814-3095
  • Phone - (800) 229-2652
  • Fax - (301) 907-8768

TRACKING OF HPS SUPPORT
  • The HPS Executive Secretariat will work closely
    with ODP to track all requests and maintain HPS
    service delivery plans.
  • All HPS support delivered as part of the HDER
    Program Pilot Project will be tracked in the HDER
    Database maintained by the ODP CSID.
  • The HPS Executive Secretariat will send the ODP
    CSID copies of the metropolitan service delivery
    plans, as well as updates on services delivered
    and costs incurred by the local HPS chapters.
  • This information will be critical in evaluating
    the HDER Program Pilot Project, and careful
    records should be kept.
