CDC's Emergency Preparedness Web Site Gets Redesign

The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions' Emergency Communication System (ECS) has redesigned its entire Emergency Preparedness and Response Web site, www.emergency.CDC.gov.

The information provided on emergency.CDC.gov is now organized under four key categories:

  1. Specific Hazards. There are many types of public health emergency threats. The site provides detailed information on more than 100 specific threats ranging from anthrax to hurricanes to dirty bombs to nerve gas. These specific hazards are organized into six categories: 1) bioterrorism, 2) chemical emergencies, 3) radiation emergencies, 4) mass casualties, 5) natural disasters and severe weather, 6) recent outbreaks and incidents.
  2. Preparedness for All Hazards. Emergency preparedness requires attention not just to specific types of hazards but also to steps that increase preparedness for any type of hazard. This section of the site is intended to help professionals take an all-hazards approach to preparedness.
  3. What CDC Is Doing. Learn about CDC activities that help strengthen national, state, and local efforts to prevent or respond to emergencies.
  4. What You Can Do. Would you be ready if there were an emergency? Be prepared: assemble an emergency supply kit, make your emergency plans, stay informed, and be involved in helping your family, your business, and your community to be ready.
  5. Simple navigation from one page to another. Now visitors can always tell exactly where they are on emergency.CDC.gov by referring to the navigation menu on the left. Use this menu to navigate to other pages on the same topic or to pages on any other emergency topic covered on the site.
