Rural Emergency Preparedness and Response Toolkit

May 26, 2023 | Beth Hess

The Rural Health Information Hub has just developed a new toolkit for rural communities in handling Emergency Preparedness and Response. The toolkit compiles evidence-based and promising models and resources to support organizations implementing emergency planning, response, and recovery efforts in rural communities across the United States.

It includes several modules exploring:

  • An overview of emergency preparedness and response in rural communities in the U.S. and unique considerations that rural communities face
  • Frameworks, information, and approaches rural communities can use to guide programs for emergency planning, response, and recovery
  • Cross-cutting issues for rural emergency preparedness and response
  • An overview of the types of public health emergencies and disasters that can affect rural communities
  • Post-emergency assessment and lessons learned
  • Resources to help with planning for rural emergency preparedness, response, and recovery
  • Case Studies

Access the toolkit.
