Success Stories in Radiation Emergency Preparedness

CDC has worked with many state and local public health and emergency management jurisdictions over the past decade and a half, and continues to provide technical assistance, training, and tools to support radiation emergency planning and preparedness activities.

Many state and local preparedness partners have made great progress in their preparedness efforts for these types of incidents, but for those who are not as far along, we want to make them aware of resources and encourage them to connect with other jurisdictions who can share their best practices and valuable experience.

We encourage you to watch these videos as examples of how state and local partners have used CDC resources to increase their radiation emergency preparedness. We hope they provide inspiration for how those resources, and others you find on our webpage, can help support your preparedness efforts in your community as well.
