Training program and exercise helps provide risk communication to underserved communities

An Oregon county developed a training program and exercise for communicating with underserved community members during a disaster.

Public Health Emergency Exercise Toolkit

The Public Health Emergency Exercise Toolkit was developed by the Columbia University School of Nursing to guide local public health agency staff in conducting emergency drills and exercises. The overarching goals of the toolkit are to aid local public health planners in 1) developing, implementing, and evaluating emergency drills and exercises, and 2) facilitating the public health aspects of larger, multiagency emergency exercises.
