First Hours: Introduction

COMMUNICATING IN THE FIRST HOURS

The Office of Public Affairs of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have developed messages and other resources for federal, state, local, and tribal public health officials to use during a response to an emergency.

Provided here are messages that apply to all Category A Biological Agents, as classified by the CDC, as well as messages about chemical and radiological events and suicide bombing.

 

Ready: Prepare. Plan. Stay Informed.
