More than 7 years after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the subsequent anthrax-laced mailings in Oct. of that year, and 3 years after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the Gulf Coast region, America has grown complacent about public health emergency preparedness. While significant progress has been made to better protect the country from health emergencies, funding for essential programs had been cut, putting these improvements in jeopardy. Additionally, a number of critical areas of preparedness still have significant gaps. This report assesses the level of preparedness in the states, evaluates the fed. government¿s role and performance, and offers recommendations for improving emergency preparedness. Tables and graphs.
