Radiological and Nuclear Preparedness and Response Workshop

March 24

NACCHO, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other state and local partners, is hosting a full day  radiological/nuclear preparedness and response workshop for about 70 attendances on 24 March 2024 in Cleveland, Ohio.

This is a pre-conference workshop prior to NACCHO’s Preparedness Summit, taking place 25-28 March 2024. The Preparedness Summit is a one-of-a-kind learning and networking opportunity for local health officials and their public health partners from all geographic regions of the nation to share perspectives and engage in dialogue on common key public health practice issues.

This interactive workshop’s first aim is to offer justification for why robust radiation planning and exercising are essential while also providing resources currently used by emergency and public health planners to bridge knowledge gaps and improve their existing radiation planning and exercising programs. The second aim of the workshop is to introduce and train public health preparedness planners to facilitate a new CDC tool called TEST (Training and Exercise Simulation Tool) which is a collaborative serious game that was developed to bridge the gap between discussion and operational exercises for Community Reception Centers (CRCs) using narrative-based problems to foster teamwork, resource management and understanding of specific roles and responsibilities during a radiation emergency.

Please note that due to funding and space restrictions, we may not be able to accommodate all requests. We will make every effort to include as many applicants as possible and will ensure a diversity of representation across the country. Your answers to the questions below will assist us in this process.

Information gained from this workshop will help inform future NACCHO communications plans and corresponding promotional activities that highlight resources of most need.
