DHSEM Strategic Communications Efforts Recognized

The National Health Security Preparedness Index has published its 2016 results and ranks DHSEM’s COEmergency and Strategic Communications Efforts as above average and rated them 8.6 out of 10 for Incident and Information Management.  

This category looks at our ability to develop systems and procedures that facilitate the communication of timely, accurate, and accessible information, alerts, warnings, and notifications to the public using a whole-community approach. This sub-domain includes using risk communication methods to support the use of clear, consistent, accessible, and culturally and linguistically appropriate methods to effectively relay information regarding any threat or hazard, the actions taken, and the assistance available.  

The NHSPI aims to provide an accurate portrayal of the nation’s health security using relevant, actionable information to help guide efforts to achieve a higher level of health security and preparedness.
