Public Preparedness

Because many of the diseases associated with bioterrorism are relatively rare, many medical professionals have never seen a clinical presentation of these diseases. Medical professionals, hospital staff and especially emergency room staff are expected to be the first to come in contact with victims of a bioterrorism event and are critical in the detection of an outbreak. The PHEPR Program is continuously working to provide resources that will help train medical professionals to recognize symptoms that would indicate these suspect diseases.

Be prepared! During an emergency, health care workers will need to be available to care for patients. Being prepared will make it easier for you to deal with emergencies.
