    • Description:
      Any community might be subject to a disaster, whether natural or of human origin. Community responses to these disasters tend to be more efficient and effective when prior planning takes place. Disaster planning is only asgood as the assumptions and information on whichit is based. Experience from hundreds of actual disasters shows that planning assumptions often are incorrect. Disaster planning based on incorrect assumptions can createanillusionof preparedness.Disasterplans,when developed, shouldbetestedandrevisedasnecessary.

      This brochure discusses training programs and tools developed bythe Agencyfor Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to help communities develop sound, evidence-based assumptions in preparing for hazardous materials (HazMat) emergencies and disasters.
