Engaging State and Local Emergency Management Agencies to Improve States Ability to Prepare for and Respond to All-Hazards Events: The purpose of the program is to prepare the Nation's public health systems to minimize the consequences associated with all-hazards events. This includes the intentional or unintentional release of a biological or chemical agent causing disease and injury in the nation's population. The public health response requires recognition of the unique yet interdependent, roles that local, state and federal agencies play to be effective. The development of infrastructure to support emergency responses must be built collaboratively. This program addresses the draft "Healthy People 2010" focus areas: Environmental Health, Immunization and Infectious Disease and Public Health Infrastructure.

NEMA conducts routine meetings/conferences to ensure broad-based policy issues are discussed and best practices are shared among constituents. NEMA has developed and maintains a website on the Internet that currently enables dissemination of information to their members/constituents.
