Amplifier Suite: Public Health and Public Safety Partnerships
Welcome to the Amplifier Suite for Public Health and Public Safety Partnerships. This resource is designed to supplement the “Public Health and Safety Team (PHAST) Toolkit”, an organizing framework to support local jurisdictions in navigating data-sharing and coordinated overdose prevention with law enforcement and public health departments to support public health and public safety teams to facilitate key processes in the PHAST framework.
It functions as a complement to the in-depth guidance of the PHAST Toolkit or as a collection of freestanding resources independent from the Toolkit.
You can start using this Amplifier Suite in one of three ways:
- Utilize the Readiness Assessments to determine areas of need and plan action items
- Explore the Action Resource Guide to see resources organized by type of action
- Review the Menu of Resources to see an overview of all the resources provided, then select a resource to start with
Choose the path that works best for your team and where you are in your implementation journey.

NACCHO developed two assessments to help local health departments quickly highlight any areas of need within your Public Health and Public Safety Partnership. Visit the NACCHO University courses below for more information. You will need to login with your MyNACCHO account, or sign-up for one for free, in order to access the courses.
Use this Readiness Assessment to get a more in-depth understanding of your public health and safety team’s progress and areas of need.
This resource provides a developmental, cause-and-effect view of the pathway from substance exposure to overdose to response and treatment efforts. It includes determinants of health, risk factors, events, and outcomes. The pathway visual helps collaborative, crosssector teams identify the sequence of events that lead to and from overdose and develop action-oriented response.
