CDC’s Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation (WT??)

Let me just say, “Stop this crazy nonsense!”

I came to this via dangerousmeta! but I’m sure #45’s antics have nothing to do with this upcoming event on January 16, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. (ET).

“While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps. Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness. For instance, most people don’t realize that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation. While federal, state, and local agencies will lead the immediate response efforts, public health will play a key role in responding.

Join us for this session of Grand Rounds to learn what public health programs have done on a federal, state, and local level to prepare for a nuclear detonation. Learn how planning and preparation efforts for a nuclear detonation are similar and different from other emergency response planning efforts <…>”
