RX RESPONSE IS MONITORING THE TORNADOS THAT STRUCK OKLAHOMA FOR PUBLIC HEALTH IMPACTS.
We are currently monitoring the situation following the Oklahoma storms. We are collecting data for mapping of open pharmacies, and anticipate that information will be available Tuesday afternoon. Please contact us at alerts@RxResponse.org if we can be of assistance in the response.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Moore tonight.

Need to locate the closest open pharmacy during an emergency?
When activated during an emergency, the Rx Response’s “Rx Open” Tool helps to connect emergency management and the general public with open pharmacies within an affected disaster area.
The Pharmacy Status Reporting Tool’s (PSRT) success following 2012’s Superstorm Sandy prompted the renaming of the program to Rx Open, an easier to remember name with a matching URL (www.RxOpen.org) to make it easier than ever to find an open pharmacy after an emergency.
Don’t make a disaster worse by losing track of your medications.
Rx Response also offers Rx on the Run (formerly known as the Rx Response Medication Card), an online tool that enables citizens to fill out and print a personalized wallet sized medication card that documents prescriptions, dosages and other important medical information. Rx on the Run makes it easier to refill prescriptions if a person has to leave their home after a disaster.
Rx Response has been hailed as a model for public/private sector disaster planning and response. Click on the image above to launch a video overview of Rx Response and hear what leading emergency management and public health officials have to say about this vital national program.
