Public health emergencies often evolve rapidly and become too complex for effective improvisation; therefore, an effective response requires planning in advance of the event. Effective planning strategies should include Disaster Risk Reduction tactics to mitigate the health impact of disasters. CDC is working in partnership with the Medical Reserve Corps to provide public health, medical and other volunteers with an accurate understanding of the principles of Disaster Risk Reduction. These principles will assist volunteers to make decisions that support building community public health resiliency. Please join us for this COCA call where a subject matter expert will discuss the principles for effective, efficient and orderly processes for disaster planning.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:
- Describe the characteristics of an effective disaster risk reduction plan
- Compare and contrast objective-based planning, operational level planning, and capacity-based planning
- List steps required for exposure reduction, susceptibility reduction, and resilience strengthening following a disaster
