Description: 

This project is intended to improve community preparedness and response and to strengthen resiliency-which will reduce injury related morbidity and mortality in public health emergencies and strengthen community and national recovery in the aftermath. The awardee will innovatively identify key issues and lessons learned that could impact communities, states, and regions and that will foster national collaboration. This can be done through improved preparation before an event by including community members in planning for known threats in their community; equipping community members to respond in the event of a public health emergency; and by providing the tools and resources to better recover in the aftermath.
