Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
The role of public health providers is to promote, protect, and improve the health of individuals and communities. After a major disaster, public health workers are often called upon to participate in a coordinated response to save lives and prevent unfavorable outcomes to vulnerable populations. To help public health professionals and agencies prepare for a disaster or public health emergency, ASPR coordinates regional, state, and local trainings and exercises. Many of these activities are coordinated through ASPR's Hospital Preparedness Program. Others, such as the 2018 Tranquil Terminus, are national level exercises.
