Additional Personal Preparedness Resources

The Outreach & Special Populations Branch (OSPB) of the National Library of Medicine & National Institutes of Health offers a large variety of personal preparedness information for all minorities and underserved populations.  And fairly recently, a joint program between OSPB and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services was created to offer a useful website portal source for this kind of information.  This resource can complement an organization’s present  personal preparedness support efforts by being included along with other personal preparedness resources made available to its employees.  The more prepared all employees are to face potential disruptive events, the better prepared their communities and their workplace environments will be to survive the effects of disruptive events.

A short listing of the special populations group offerings available in this portal, along with a link to the actual resources offered in each group, are listed as follows: 

  1. Disabled  
  2. Hearing Impaired
  3. Diabetes
  4. Guidance for Employers

Hopefully, this information will find its way into the resource libraries of those business continuity, disaster preparedness and crisis management teams in your organization.
