Description

The CAMEO suite of programs – CAMEO, ALOHA, and LandView -– uses Filemaker Pro. The new CAMEO fm looks quite different from the previous version, although a lot will be familiar. Information is organized in a similar fashion; and Facility Information, Chemicals in Inventory, Special Locations, and Screening and Scenarios modules for storing your EPCRA data were retained. This three-day program offers an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the new version and receive individual attention from qualified instructors, and is ideal for Novice CAMEO fm users, as well as existing users who don't want to waste time learning the changes through trial and error.

Additional Information

Hands-On CAMEO fm Training March 22 - 24, 2004 **Please Note** The following information is currently being updated. Below reflects last year's information and is subject to change. NIOSH and NIEHS provide financial support for the program Presented in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency Region I To register, CLICK HERE Expert instruction in the new CAMEO fm system. FOR NEW AND PRESENT USERS A new, expanded, faster CAMEO (Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations) System is now available. If you are new to CAMEO, this is your opportunity to gain a comprehensive introduction to this version. If you are already using CAMEO, you will learn how to take maximum advantage of the new features, with minimal disruption to your existing data. OVERVIEW The CAMEO suite of programs – CAMEO, ALOHA, and LandView -– uses Filemaker Pro. The new CAMEO fm looks quite different from the previous version, although a lot will be familiar. Information is organized in a similar fashion; and Facility Information, Chemicals in Inventory, Special Locations, and Screening and Scenarios modules for storing your EPCRA data were retained.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND Security Officials Health, safety, and environmental managers Chemical emergency planners and responders Industrial hygienists HAZMAT teams and firefighters State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) members Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) members Others involved with hazardous substances, including deliberate releases UPON COMPLETION OF THIS COURSE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO: Begin to work effectively in CAMEO – Through hands-on training, new or infrequent users will familiarize themselves with the data and functions in CAMEO. This includes searching the chemical database, storing and retrieving EPCRA data, and creating simple reports. Work in ALOHA – Practice sessions help students learn the basic operational steps and the necessary inputs. By using ALOHA to create hazardous gas "footprints" for release scenarios and plotting footprints on electronic maps, users will gain both knowledge and confidence. The class also explains how to avoid potential misuses of ALOHA and misinterpretations of ALOHA results. Use the basic functions and capabilities of LandView – This "how-to" session covers navigating around a map, controlling the display of map objects, searching for map objects, using search collections, linking to CAMEO data, and saving map images for use in other programs. Make effective use of Tier II Submit – This free software was developed by EPA and NOAA for use by facilities in submitting Tier II reports in qualified states. See how to enter data for submission, correct errors prior to submitting a report, copy a report from a previous year, and work with the Tier II data within the larger context of CAMEO. Move data between the old and new versions of CAMEO – A detailed lecture introduces the new areas of CAMEO and explains the principles of transferring existing data into the new version. You will hear thorough explanations of each step of the import and export process, including using other formats, the new Tier II Submit, and basic troubleshooting tips. WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND The hands-on experience in CAMEO this program provides would be time well spent under any circumstance, but in the current era of uncertainty, effective use of this software is more critical than ever before. The US EPA, in conjunction with the New England State Emergency Response Commissions and Local Emergency Planning Committees, is asking for a renewed focus on the subject of Deliberate Releases and the planning steps each community can undertake. Site security – to minimize potential criminal activity and to protect company assets – and the security of the hazardous chemicals, biological materials, or radioactive substances in your community deserve your best effort. Come to Harvard in March and learn how to make the most effective use of the available software tools. FACULTY Course Directors: Leonard B.
