We recognize the need to be ready on all fronts at all times. Many of you have put together preparedness and response plans and have worked closely with a variety of organizations on implementing these plans. We appreciate your feedback and lessons learned from these recent experiences. We want to share som e of this information with everyone to help in identifying gaps and building immediate capacity to detect and respond to bioterrorism incidents. Below are the seven high priority areas that public health agencies have agreed to focus on for preparedness for public health threats and emergencies. Within each area are listed the overall goal and key, priority actions that we suggest be considered to not only assess preparedness but also identify critical gaps that need to be filled in your community. We suggest that your agency immediately consider which of these steps is appropriate and necessary for preparedness in your state and local area.
