Program Overview

Environmental health practitioners have important roles and must perform a number of critical functions during emergency response such as, conducting shelter assessments, testing drinking water supplies, conducting food safety inspections, and controlling disease-causing vectors. In order to improve response times, efficiency and overall organization, some state, local and federal entities have formed environmental health response teams. In this broadcast, members of environmental health response teams describe their team’s mission, structure, funding support, and training, as well as share available resources.
