Acadian Animal Hospital is proud to serve the Thibodaux and surrounding communities for everything pet related. This resource was developed by AHRQ as part of its Public Health Emergency Preparedness program, which was discontinued on June 30, 2011.
The Emergency Preparedness Resource Inventory Tool (EPRI) was developed by funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). A 30 percent reduction in a program aimed at strengthening health-care preparedness could have dire consequences on the ability of communities to respond when disaster strikes.

Specifically, hospitals and other health-care facilities and local health departments (LHDs), will have limited capacity to plan for and respond to public health emergencies such as Superstorm Sandy, which required the coordinated evacuation of a large number of patients, and the assistance of public health emergency response teams during and following the storm. Maintaining the capacity and capability to effectively evacuate patients, sustain operations during the midst of an emergency, meet the surge from increased volume of patients, and establish systems to reunite family following an emergency are all activities that have been supported by HPP grants. LHD officials are not only concerned about how these cuts will affect their community’s health-care and medical surge planning, but are also considering the impacts to their staff. Instead of looking at success stories like Boston as proof that hospital preparedness has been achieved, we should recognized that those success stories are the result of dedicated public health and health-care responders with the resources and training they needed to save lives because of grant opportunities made possible through HPP.
This article was originally published by the National Association of County and City Health Officials. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Program was established by enactment of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002.
The PHEP program is a critical source of funding, guidance, and technical assistance for state, territorial, and local public health departments.
In 2011, to help public health departments with their strategic planning, the CDC identified 15 public health preparedness capabilities to serve as national public health preparedness standards.
Beginning in 2012 the PHEP program is funded via a joint cooperative agreement award and aligned with the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP). Funding for the program is routed through state public health departments via cooperative agreement with a requirement that states provide sub grants to local health departments requiring deliverables consistent with the federal strategy. The CDC recently announced that because Congress has failed to provide emergency supplemental funding for Zika research and response, as requested by the White House, they are shifting $44.2 million from state public health emergency preparedness (PHEP) cooperative agreements to pay the tab.
Because of the Congressionally mandated PHEP formula, the cuts are not equally distributed across the board.

Unless states are able to absorb the hit by reducing internal operating cost, which is highly unlikely in the current economic environment, the cuts will impact local health department sub grants.
Yes, there’s still an outside chance of a Zika appropriations bill that could mitigate the damage. Describe their top jurisdictional strategic priorities for the remainder of the project period.
Awardees must update their multiyear training and exercise plans (TEPs) to reflect planned activities.
Conduct the following exercises and provide results to CDC, (1) One MCM distribution full-scale exercise (FSE) during the current project period, (2) One MCM dispensing FSE conducted in each CRI MSA during the current project period.

While Sandy may have required the largest regionally coordinated response, there is no shortage of other recent examples that should provide motivation for continued funding in support of HPP. She fears that with the loss in funding her team may not be able to complete, drill and train on the current surge plans that are already in development. Many LHDs rely on their preparedness coordinators to organize and convene health-care coalitions consisting of public health, hospitals, and other medical providers to plan and prepare for public health emergencies. Without continued funding to provide training and resources, we cannot expect other communities to aspire toward these success stories as achievable examples.
Preparedness activities funded by the PHEP program are targeted specifically for the development of emergency-ready public health departments that are flexible and adaptable. State and local jurisdictions can use CDC's Public Health Preparedness Capabilities: National Standards for State and Local Planning to better organize their work and identify the capabilities they have the resources to build or sustain.
PHEP program guidance assists the 62 PHEP awardees in demonstrating measurable and sustainable progress toward achieving the 15 public health preparedness capabilities and other activities that promote safer and more resilient communities.
Though there's no direct cut, expect collateral damage from bleed-over in state operational cost, as many state preparedness positions are now dual funded. But, without state and local awardees making their voices heard to their Congressional representatives, such action is highly unlikely.

In addition, awardees must submit any follow-up data needed to better inform the PIRA baseline data. He is also the Chairman of Akron Regional Hospital Association's Emergency Management Committee and previous Chairman of the Northeast Central Ohio Emergency Planning Consortium for Healthcare. That equals nearly a 30 percent reduction in a program specifically aimed at strengthening health-care preparedness for public health emergencies. For example, the mass shooting at the Century movie theater in Aurora, Colo., required seven hospitals to meet the surge of victims from the shooting, and the lauded quick triage of the injured following the Boston Marathon bombings was made possible because of the coordination of hospital response through training and planning supported through HPP. A loss in funding also means a loss in capacity to exercise and test plans that address these and other functions, and coordinate these plans with other public health emergency response partners, such as LHDs and emergency management. Valentine also believes her department may struggle to purchase regional assets to support medical surge. Preparedness coordinator positions are often funded through the HPP grant and could be eliminated due to HPP cuts.
For LHDs, medical surge and public health preparedness staffing are just two areas that may be affected by budget cuts to HPP. Through CRI, state and metropolitan public health departments have developed plans to respond to a large-scale bioterrorist event by dispensing antibiotics to the entire population of an identified MSA with 48 hours. These standards help ensure that federal preparedness funds are directed to priority areas within individual jurisdictions. These cuts could have severe and dire consequences on the ability of communities to respond when disaster strikes. In the past, the Southwest Utah Public Health Department used HPP grant dollars to purchase a water filtration system, as well as cots and supplies for alternate care sites.
With a reduction in staff, the collaboration and relationships built between these health-care coalitions may be lost. If LHDs no longer have HPP funds to support medical surge plans, LHDs will begin to see reductions in their capability and capacity to respond and protect their communities from the effects of emergencies and disasters, as has already happened in southwest Utah.
