PUBLIC RESOURCES

Rx Response has developed a list of resources useful for the public in preparing for and recovering from an emergency.

    • To help individuals and families better prepare for a severe public health emergency, the American Red Cross provides resources for emergency planning.
      • The Ready Rating program helps businesses, schools and organizations become prepared for emergencies.
      • Prepare for extreme weather in advance by downloading a variety of American Red Cross mobile apps.
    • While local, state, and federal emergency management agencies regularly respond to public health emergencies, citizens play a major role in enabling a successful response that saves lives. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has compiled a list of informative resources on how individuals can recover following an emergency.
