NATIONAL PLANNING SCENARIO
- Bio attack: tularemia (sub for pneumonic plague)
- Commit to reporting possible CBRNE exposure on the basis of clinical suspicion without awaiting laboratory confirmation.
- Describe one's professional roles, functions and responsibilities in CBRNE and other public health situations (i.e. one's personal role in this system/NIMS/NRP).
- Define the Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS), National Response Plan (NRP) and describe their general structure and components. (ICS 100 or equivalent)
- Describe the concept of an all-hazards approach to preparedness.
- Identify suspect and confirmed disease, conditions and events that are legally reportable, how to report and one's role.
- Describe the four stages of emergency management: Preparedness, Response, Recovery and Mitigation.
- Describe one's role in the local, community and statewide public health emergency response system.
- Describe the disease surveillance and reporting systems for one's local area/region.
- Appropriately implement components of the preparedness plan in a timely fashion.
- Critique and evaluate components of the response plan, including one's individual role.
- Describe the signs and symptoms of individual cases and the characteristics of epidemics that can help one distinguish between a potential bioterrorism attack and natural disease phenomena (i.e. signs/symptoms, number of case, temporality, etc).
- Identify and describe available emergency response resources at the federal, state and local levels and their roles/responsibilities.
- Identify a strategy (or strategies) to respond to media inquiries during a public health emergency.
