Summertime, and the living is--busy! As the weather heats up, we know our stakeholders are busy bolstering your planning and mitigation efforts. ASPR TRACIE can help! We encourage you to visit our Select Hurricane-Related Resources Page, where you can access resources on mold remediation, patient evacuation, and potential public health and medical implications associated with hurricanes and flooding. If you live in a wildfire-prone area, check out our Natural Disasters Topic Collection, which includes links to plans, tools, and templates and lessons learned from wildfires. And dont forget about our Major Earthquakes & Cascading Events: Potential Health and Medical Implications document, which provides an overview of the potential significant health and medical response and recovery needs facing areas affected by a major earthquake (with or without additional cascading events). Human-caused incidents dont take a summer break, either. Recent cyber-attacks on healthcare and other critical infrastructure entities (in MD, OR, and in between) call for healthcare facilities to be extra vigilant. Our Cybersecurity Topic Collection can help you guard against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from cyber threats, ensuring patient safety and operational continuity. We sincerely appreciate your support and encourage you to reach out to us if you have a resource to share or need technical assistance.
In this issue of The Express, we highlight new publications, upcoming events, and updates from our three domains.
