Emergency Public Health: Preparedness and Response
presents environmental public health professionals, policymakers, first responders, and emergency healthcare providers with a unique and practical framework for disaster response planning at local, state, and national levels.

With threats to the population ever-present, environmental public health professionals are being required to meet increasing expectations for emergency preparedness, response, and interagency cooperation with disaster strikes. This is the first book of its kind to systematically address these issues in a range of environmental public health emergencies brought on by natural calamity, terrorism, industrial accident, or infectious disease.

Authored by experts with diverse backgrounds in emergency medicine and public health, each chapter of Emergency Public Health features historical perspectives on a public health crisis, an analysis of preparedness, and a practical, relevant case study on the emergency response.

The book also features:
  • Special sections on mental health and children’s health during environmental public health emergencies
  • Practical information on public health low and government regulations
  • Analysis of public health tools including surveillance and rapid needs assessment
568 pages, paperback.
