    Annotation:This 90-minute webinar features experts who discuss preparedness and response to Superstorm Sandy in 2012. It covers the core information that was used/is needed to guide natural disaster response, the most important information systems needed to provide this information, how these systems should be designed and managed to assure proper system functioning during an emergency, and lessons learned and helpful resources. It is one of a series of webinars on improving biosurveillance during public health emergencies. This page provides support materials on the topic.

    Annotation:This 98-page document summarizes commercially available technologies that can be used by first responders in the field for the collection, screening, and identification of biological materials. It is meant to provide useful information about available technologies to help end-users make informed decisions about biodetection technology procurement and use. The guide has been organized by grouping similar technologies relevant to responding to potential biological threat incidents, including sample collection kits and tools, and immunoassays.

    Annotation:This 342-page document provides evidence-based and best practice information for behavioral health service providers and administrators who want to work more effectively with people who have been exposed to acute and chronic traumas and/or are at risk of developing traumatic stress reactions. These events may be human-made, such as a mechanical error that causes a disaster, war, terrorism, sexual abuse, or violence; they can also be the products of nature (e.g., flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes).

    Date Published:01/31/2014
    Annotation:This resource provides 339 standard measures related to complex diseases, phenotypic traits, and environmental exposures. Use of PhenX measures facilitates combining data from a variety of studies, and makes it easy for investigators to expand a study design beyond the primary research focus. It includes these sections relevant to post-disaster data collection: Alcohol Substance Abuse, Demographics, Environmental Exposure, Psychiatric
    Psychosocial, and Social Environments. This resource is recommended by the NIH Disaster Research Response project (DR2) for researchers looking for post-disaster data collection instruments.
