Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
The following is a text alternative description for the Byron Mason: Benefits of an Early Start to Health and Social Services Recovery Operations.
[Video begins with an interview with Byron Mason, Disaster Recovery Coordinator for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.]
Byron Mason: We’re here for the long term. We recognize that recovery is, you know, a marathon not a sprint. We want to be here in the beginning when everyone is focusing on response. Recognizing that the actions that are taken and the decisions that are made often have longer-term implications and impacts. So, if we can be here in the beginning and kind of get people to understand that while you’re responding and putting this fire out there might be a better more strategic way to address this issue. So that we don’t have additional problems in the near future.
[The video concludes with a non-descript background followed by the Department of Health and Human Services logo, caption and voice-over narrative, “Produced at U.S. taxpayer expense by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.”]
