Purpose and Scope of the Workshop

The Spring 2009, NIEHS Worker Education and Training Program's workshop Local, State and Federal Partnerships for Chemical Preparedness and Response was cosponsored by the Interstate Chemical Terrorism Workgroup (ICTW) and the City of Cincinnati. The workshop brought together about 150 people from local, state and federal government as well as those from labor, academia and other non-profit groups. Participants heard about partnerships for chemical preparedness and response, were shown a variety of resources that can be used during a chemical response to help protect responders and the surrounding community. Concurrent breakout sessions covered: emergency response; training; risk communication, community preparedness; health care, public health, and mental health; and advanced training technologies. Some of these resources and advanced technologies were then used the next day during a disaster training exercise in which participants worked through the response and recovery phases of the simulated incident, focusing specifically on the health and safety aspects of those workers who would be impacted.
