  • National Alliance for Radiation Readiness Radiation Training Modules for Public Health (LINK)
    • Description: Radiation emergencies require an all-hazards response with necessary additions to protect responders and receivers, limit health impacts and save lives. Due to their high threat/low probably nature, public health preparedness planners often focus resources elsewhere. Throughout these training modules, subject matter experts (SMEs) will walk you through the radiation-specific issues that should be considered before and during the four phases of response. These SMEs are members of the National Alliance for Radiation Readiness (NARR) and represent public health, healthcare and emergency management.
