US Response to Disasters and Public Health Emergencies" provides an introduction to disaster/emergency planning and response as conducted in the United States, with an emphasis on medical response. To determine where disaster information specialists might best fit into the US framework for disaster/emergency response, it is necessary to start with shared understanding of terminology, concepts, legislation, organizations, and lessons learned from previous incidents. The class describes efforts to provide structure and order before, during, and after emergencies and disasters. Changes over time in legislation and the US framework for disaster/emergency response are discussed using examples from 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the Haiti earthquake. This course is a required class for the Disaster Information Specialization Program. This project is funded by a contract with the Disaster Information Management Research Center, Specialized Information Services Division, National Library of Medicine.
