    • Description:
      The first edition of Population Monitoring in Radiation Emergencies was published in 2007 after extensive collaboration with representatives from many local, state, and federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations who provided expert input.

      Since the publication of the 2007 edition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff and its partners have presented the content of this guide at national and regional technical meetings and training sessions throughout the country to a variety of public health audiences. The content of the guide has been used in the design and conduct of drills and exercises at local, state, and federal levels. States are beginning to incorporate population monitoring into their radiation emergency response plans as awareness of this important preparedness element continues to increase.

      The operational concept of the community reception center (CRC)—first described in the 2007 edition—is also being incorporated in radiation emergency response plans across the country. To support this effort, CDC has developed a number of training and planning tools and resources specifically related to population monitoring and CRC operations.

      This second edition of Population Monitoring in Radiation Emergencies is similar in structure to the first edition. However, it incorporates recommendations received from users and new information from a number of recent national and international consensus documents related to population monitoring. In addition, the expanded appendices contain detailed descriptions of related tools and resources that CDC has developed since 2007.
