Outbreaks of communicable diseases like Ebola, MERS-CoV, SARS, and avian flu demonstrate the pivotal role public health and medical professionals play in keeping communities safe. Unfortunately, these outbreaks often highlight weaknesses in preparedness and response. ASG has a long history of working with public health departments and medical facilities to develop sustainable and effective levels of preparedness.
Our capacity-building approach begins with conducting a hazard vulnerability assessment by employing powerful casualty planning models, staffing and resource analyses and strategic planning. Together, these provide a pathway to strengthening preparedness through concrete steps.
