2017 RadResponder Nationwide Population Monitoring Drill

August 17, 2017

The RadResponder Network, in coordination with NACCHO, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) is hosting a nationwide population monitoring drill on August 17, 2017. The purpose of this virtual dill is to test the functionality of population monitoring capabilities available via the RadResponder. This drill is intended for organizations familiar with using RadResponder to create events and collect data, and with at least some exposure to its population monitoring features via beta testing or preliminary stakeholder discussions.

Drill participants will be engaged in testing new RadResponder features including the ability to add community reception centers (CRCs) to an event map, enter CRC information (e.g., facility status, contamination screening criteria), and input aggregate data on the screened population (e.g., numbers with internal/external contamination, signs of ARS, sent/referred to hospitals). During the drill, the RadResponder Support Team will be available via webinar from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm ET to record feedback and provide technical support and status updates. The CDC will also host a briefing on August 17 at 2:00 pm ET and a mini-hotwash at 4:00 pm ET to obtain feedback from drill participants. However, participating organizations are free to submit data outside of these time frames.

In order to engage in this drill, organizations must have the population monitoring feature enabled in RadResponder. For more information about this event and how to participate, please contact Alexandra Harris at aharris@naccho.org.
