Monday, July 28 2014
Location: Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, MA
July 28 - August 1, 2014
This challenging program uses practical tools to prepare participants from all sectors to plan for and respond to radiological events, whether at the state, local, or individual facility level.
We bring together leaders in emergency planning to explore methodologies for creating comprehensive and integrated emergency response plans for radiological events. Drawing from decades of direct experience, Harvard School of Public Health faculty, guest speakers, and participants share practical tools and guidelines based on their successes and failures in preparing for, responding to, and communicating about radiological emergencies.
Participants examine criteria and requirements for creating an effective emergency plan, expand their ability to effectively communicate with the media and public during crisis situations, and medically manage casualties of a radiological incident.
