Preparedness and response programs are key to maximizing recovery from any large-scale incident including man-made or natural disasters, pandemics and other public health crises. Programs cover bombing incidents, specific needs of pediatric patients in an emergency response and medical management of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive events. Other courses guide local health officials and their partners in coordinating plans to provide mass distribution of medical countermeasures in response to public health incidents. Disaster preparedness for hospitals and healthcare organizations provides training to this critical part of community infrastructure. Together, these courses address key requirements in multiple core capabilities including: mass care services, community resilience, health and social services, public health and medical services, long-term vulnerability reduction, risk and disaster resilience assessment, environmental response, physical protective measures, operational coordination, on-scene security and protection, situational assessment, and public and private resources.
