These resources are available to you to use at your facility. These resources have been created through workgroups and are intended to be used by you to make them your own. We have checklists and templates and training tools and hope you find them useful in your planning.

TRACIE Web Site:

Brought to you by HHS ASPR, the Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (TRACIE) was created to meet the information and technical assistance needs of regional ASPR staff, healthcare coalitions, healthcare entities, healthcare providers, emergency managers, public health practitioners, and others working in disaster medicine, healthcare system preparedness, and public health emergency preparedness.
