Tweet information on the Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative to your followers.
The Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative provides America’s public health agencies with a comprehensive approach for assessing disaster and emergency planning, preparedness, response and recovery capabilities.
The initiative’s exercises have been developed to assist public health agencies with disaster and emergency planning efforts and to help agency management and employees to understand how to respond to situations they do not face in their daily work environment.
Caduceus Shield exercises are designed to provide an opportunity for public health boards, agencies and departments to participate in a meaningful exercise with measurable outcomes. The initiative provides an alternative to the traditional time consuming and costly approach to conducting tabletop, functional and full-scale exercises by utilizing an internet based exercise delivery system to design, conduct and evaluate exercises.
The concept behind the recurring series of core exercises is to provide public health agencies with an opportunity to assess an identified capability as cost-effectively as possible.
