  • Description:
    To better prepare the local public health system in the United States for public sheltering needs following a radiation emergency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tasked the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) with convening the “Workshop on Operating Public Shelters during a Radiation Emergency” on February 3–4, 2010, in Atlanta, GA. This workshop brought together representatives from local health departments (LHDs), state health departments, federal agencies, and key non‐governmental organizations such as the ARC to help develop clear guidelines and action plans for stakeholders in terms of public sheltering preparedness, specifically for LHDs, in response to radiation emergencies. Based on the findings from this workshop, this report provides recommendations about next steps that should be taken in order to create clear guidelines and protocols for the public health system for public sheltering during a radiation emergency.
