  • 2017 Preparedness Summit

    As public health professionals looks towards the next two decades, one thing is certain, the world will not look the same as it does today. Our changing environment, technological innovation and increasing population density in urban areas are just some of the driving forces that will test our ability to take actions to prepare, respond, and recovery from disasters. The focus of the 2017 Preparedness Summit is to explore the factors driving change in our world, analyze how they will impact the future of public health preparedness, and identify opportunities we have today to drive action toward meeting our future needs.


    The goal of the Preparedness Summit is to provide a venue where participants are exposed to current information, research findings, and practical tools to enhance the participants’ capabilities to plan and prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other public health emergencies.

  • Tornado Summit

    While Tornadoes happen year-round (even in Winter!) and nation-wide, we are headed toward peak Tornado Season... This week will see the National Tornado Summit convene to discuss preparedness. The Tornado Summit is being held at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

    The Summit is an annual conference aimed at saving lives and helping communities quickly recover from tornadoes. Topics will range from Preparing Individuals Disproportionately Impacted by Disasters to Disaster and Emergency Preparedness Survival Tips to Disaster Kit Storage to an OKC National Memorial & Museum Tour



  • Disaster Kit Storage

    Where will you be when Disaster Strikes? FEMA reminds us that you never know where you’ll be when an emergency occurs, so it’s a good idea to be ready wherever you are.  That means preparing supplies for your home, work, and vehicle. We always say Tip #1: Prepare your car before you prepare your home. Learn Why..

    The Ready Campaign has information about creating a disaster supply kit for each location.

    Preparedness and Survival Gear: Here. Preparedness and Survival Gear: Here.

    For your home:

    • Create a kit containing enough food, water, and supplies to last at least three days; and
    • Keep the kit in a designated place and make sure family members know where it is.

    For your work:

    • Be prepared to shelter in place for at least 24 hours;
    • Include food, water, and other necessities like medicines in your kit. Keep the kit in one container and be ready to grab and go; and
    • Have comfortable walking shoes in case an evacuation requires walking long distances.

    Learn About Specific Types of Disaster Preparedness:

  • Incident Command System (ICS)

    Image of incident command system chartIncident Command System Core Concepts:

    • Common terminology -use of similar terms and definitions for resource descriptions, organizational functions, and incident facilities across disciplines.
    • Integrated communications -ability to send and receive information within an organization, as well as externally to other disciplines.
    • Modular organization -response resources are organized according to their responsibilities. Assets within each functional unit may be expanded or contracted based on the requirements of the event.
    • Unified command structure -multiple disciplines work through their designated managers to establish common objectives and strategies to prevent conflict or duplication of effort.
    • Manageable span of control- response organization is structured so that each supervisory level oversees an appropriate number of assets (varies based on size and complexity of the event) so it can maintain effective supervision.
    • Consolidated action plans- a single, formal documentation of incident goals, objectives, and strategies defined by unified incident command.
    • Comprehensive resource management -systems in place to describe, maintain, identify, request, and track resources.
    • Pre-designated incident facilities- assignment of locations where expected critical incident-related functions will occur.
