TRACIE now open to emergency responders

TRACIE now open to emergency responders.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) announced earlier this month that the Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHS) Technical Resources, Assistance Center and Information Exchange (TRACIE) is open to response personnel.

The system is offered by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and offers multiple resources and other tools that will aid overall preparedness efforts.

Through the system, users are able to access subject matter experts in many areas of preparedness including crisis care standards and pediatric resources. This section of the system also features assessment tools for hospital and other healthcare facility readiness. This system also allows users to find applicable training in emergency response, preparedness and recovery.

Aside from these there are also a growing number of articles and other material that can further enhance understanding and knowledge in the field. According to the announcement, all material is reviewed by subject experts. The system also offers a forum for users to share their information, materials and experience within the field of emergency preparedness.

The system was developed in a cooperative effort between ASPR, regional healthcare associations, academic institutions and agencies at all levels of the government.
