For Preparedness Workers

Public Health Emergency

The Public Health Emergency website acts as a cross-governmental portal for residents in the U.S. and worldwide to obtain information from all U.S. federal agencies and their state and local partners involved in a public health emergency, medical disaster, or public health aspects of a natural or man-made disaster. Find the current status and actions taken by the federal government regarding public health emergency preparedness. Links to report potential public health threats and information about the medical response, emergency support functions, and medical services are also available, along with public health actions taken by the federal government during domestic and international emergencies.

 The National Center for Disaster Preparedness at the Earth Institute of Columbia University has resources for preparedness workers with research, training, and expert commentary on various disaster response and emergency preparedness topics.
