Public health workers need to understand and implement basic concepts of personal preparedness planning so that they can function effectively as public health emergency responders in a post-9/11 world. These basic preparedness strategies can be applied to meet a broad range of public health emergency response challenges, including—but not limited to—acts of terrorism. Personal Preparedness Planning provides a practical introduction to these concepts that is tailored to the needs of public health responders and their families.
