2010 Report: Public Health Preparedness

Appendix 6: Cities Readiness Initiative Technical Assistance Review Scores for 2007-2008

The Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) of CDC’s Strategic National Stockpile focuses on enhancing preparedness in the nation’s major metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) where more than 50% of the U.S. population resides. Through CRI, state and large metropolitan public health departments have developed plans to respond to a large-scale bioterrorist event within 48 hours. The initial CRI planning scenario was based on a response to a large-scale anthrax attack. Through continued analysis and lessons learned, it became apparent that CRI MSAs needed to be better prepared to also respond to other public health emergencies. The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA) of 2006 (P.L. 109-417) emphasizes an all-hazards approach to public health preparedness planning.

The CRI project began in 2004 with 21 cities and expanded to a total of 72 MSAs, with at least one MSA in every state. Occasionally, MSAs extend across state borders, resulting in the representation of several states within one MSA.

MSAs can be composed of one or more jurisdictions (e.g., counties, cities, and municipalities). Annual technical assistance reviews (TARs) are conducted in each jurisdiction to ensure continued readiness. CDC is responsible for conducting 25% of the TARs (see scores with asterisks) while the state is responsible for the other 75%. On a scale of 0 to 100, a TAR score of 69 or higher indicates that a jurisdiction performed within an acceptable range. The scores for each jurisdiction are combined to compute an average score for the entire MSA. The average MSA scores and individual jurisdiction scores for 2007-2008 are provided in Table 1 for each of the 72 MSAs.

For more information on CRI, including TAR scores for 2008-09, see www.emergency.cdc.gov/cri.
