Description:

Risk Communicating Resources for Rural Areas is a toolkit to help rural public health clinics communicate their message to the community during an emergency or disaster.

  • Communicating during a natural event
  • Communicating during a biological event
  • Communicating during a chemical event
  • Communicating during a radiological event
  • Communicating during a mass vaccination/medical event
  • How to have a Joint Information Center in your community
  • Non-traditional ways to communicate

 This tool was created as part of the Public Health Preparedness mini-grant entitled "Innovative Solutions in Public Health Preparedness" in 2009.
