There’s a GAP for That: Detailing Poor Emergency Response Outcomes when Public Health Preparedness Plans Lack Operational Substance

Since the attacks of 9/11, the U.S. government has provided funding to federal, state, and local emergency response entities in order to prepare better for accidental, intentional, and natural threats. Public health departments have received grant funding in order to implement, maintain, and exercise response plans within their purview. In this video based on her CHDS Master’s thesis, Kore Redden analyzes real-world emergencies and the lessons learned from them to demonstrate that grant funding is falling short of its goal by not assessing for operational content and practicality.
