EIIP Moderator: Amy Sebring
The EIIP Virtual Library hosted Anita Kellogg, CEM, Vice President,ICF Incorporated, who presented QRR #111, "Public Health Emergency Response: Evaluation of Implementation of a New Emergency Management System for Public Health in the State of Georgia." The presentation was based on an evaluation after past floods and tornadoes in Georgia. when public health staff were called upon to act as responders and were unprepared. The ICF work in Georgia included research/assessment of readiness; development of procedures to address the roles of public health staff in preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation; implementation (training and exercises); and real-world evaluation of how the system worked as a result of tornadoes in 1998.
