Emergency Preparedness

The Connecticut State Medical Society has been providing physicians with preparedness information for decades.

Today, CSMS continues to serve as a preparedness resource for Connecticut physicians.

ASPR TRACIE can help!

  •  Select Hurricane-Related Resources Page, where you can access resources on mold remediation, patient evacuation, and potential public health and medical implications associated with hurricanes and flooding.
  • Major Earthquakes & Cascading Events: Potential Health and Medical Implications document, which provides an overview of the potential significant health and medical response and recovery needs facing areas affected by a major earthquake (with or without additional cascading events). Human-caused incidents don’t take a summer break, either. Recent cyber-attacks on healthcare and other critical infrastructure entities (in MD, OR, and in between) call for healthcare facilities to be extra vigilant.
  • Cybersecurity Topic Collection can help you guard against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from cyber threats, ensuring patient safety and operational continuity.
