Developing a Threat Response Guide


Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) asked Hagerty for assistance developing a threat response guide.


Supplement current plans and provide guidance to leadership during various scenarios.


Based on information gathered from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Hagerty supported CCDPH in the development of three Public Health Threat Response Guides. These guides include a framework for response to the following hazards: (1) Aerosolized Anthrax Attack, (2) Novel Pandemic Influenza, and (3) Inclement Weather.


The guides were used to train the CCDPH Executive Group and staff.
