  • Alternative Title:
    PHPR all-hazards preparedness guide
  • Description:
    For over 60 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability. Because of its unique abilities to respond to infectious, occupational, or environmental outbreaks or events, CDC also plays a pivotal role in preparing our nation for all types of public health emergencies. CDC's Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (PHPR) leads the agency's preparedness and response activities by providing strategic direction, support, and coordination for activities across CDC as well as with local, state, tribal, national, territorial, and international public health partners. CDC also helps these partners recover and restore public health functions after the initial response. Being prepared to prevent, respond to, and recover rapidly from public health threats can save lives and protect the health and safety of the public. Though some people feel it is impossible to be prepared for unexpected events, the truth is that taking preparedness actions helps people deal with hazards of all types much more effectively when they do occur. By reading this guide, you have taken the first step in securing your preparedness. You will learn that emergency preparedness requires attention not just to specific types of hazards but also to steps that increase preparedness for any type of hazard.
