CDC Emergency Preparedness and Response: What's New
(1) Public Health Matters Blog - 3 Reasons Why Handwashing Should Matter to You
Most of us are familiar with the parental-like voice in the back of our minds that helps guide our decision-making-asking us questions like, "Have you called your grandmother lately?" For many that voice serves as a gentle, yet constant reminder to wash our hands. Mon, 15 Oct 2018 09:00:00 EST
(2) Public Health Matters Blog - Protecting our Future: Emergency Preparedness and Children's Mental Health
Among the many lessons learned during the 2017 Hurricane season, we recognized that addressing children's mental and behavioral health needs is a major concern in hurricane-affected areas. CDC's At Risk Task Force (ARTF) was established in 2017 to ensure identification and prioritization of the mental and physical health needs of at-risk populations, including children. ARTF's first Emergency Operations Center (EOC) activation was on Aug. 31, 2017, in response to Hurricane Harvey, the first of three consecutive hurricanes to hit the United States and its territories in a five-week period. ARTF's mission was to address the needs of at-risk populations in affected areas throughout the response and recovery phases. Tue, 09 Oct 2018 09:00:00 EST
(3) Health Alert Network (HAN) No. 415 - Hurricane Florence-Clinical Guidance For Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reminding clinicians seeing patients from the areas affected by Hurricane Florence to maintain a high index of suspicion for CO poisoning. Other people who may be exposed to the same CO source may need to be identified and assessed. Sun, 16 Sep 2018 13:45:00 EST
(4) Public Health Matters Blog - Personal Protective Actions You Can Take in a Flu Pandemic
Every fall and winter the United States experiences epidemics of seasonal influenza (flu). Sometimes a flu pandemic occurs due to a new flu virus that spreads and causes illnesses around the world. We cannot predict when a flu pandemic will occur, but over the past 100 years, we have documented four flu pandemics resulting in close to 1 million deaths in the United States alone. Mon, 10 Sep 2018 09:00:00 EST
(5) Health Alert Network (HAN) No. 414 - Advice to Clinicians about Leptospirosis in U.S. Travelers Returning from Northern Israel
The Israeli Ministry of Health is reporting an outbreak of leptospirosis in persons with exposure to natural water sources in the Golan Heights region of northern Israel after July 1, 2018. As of September 6, 2018, three persons with leptospirosis who traveled to Israel have been identified in the United States, with additional suspected cases reported and under investigation. Early symptoms of leptospirosis include fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, diarrhea, cough, conjunctival suffusion (conjunctival redness without exudates), jaundice, and sometimes a rash. Clinicians should consider leptospirosis as a diagnosis in any patient who develops an acute febrile illness within 4 weeks of travel to one of the areas in northern Israel listed below since July 1, 2018. Fri, 07 Sep 2018 13:45:00 EST
(6) Public Health Matters Blog - The Power of Preparedness: Prepare Your Health
The devastating hurricanes of 2017 reminded us how important it is to prepare for disasters. These potentially life-threatening situations have real impacts on personal and public health. During Hurricane Irma, existing medical conditions and power outages increased the likelihood of death. Being prepared with supplies and an Emergency Action Plan can help you protect the health of your family until help arrives. September is National Preparedness Month (#NatlPrep), and the perfect time of year to remind people of The Power of Preparedness. This year's call-to-action of Prepare Your Health (#PrepYourHealth) and four weekly themes highlight the roles that individuals, state and local public health, and CDC play in creating community health resilience. It takes everyone "pulling in the same direction" to create families, communities, and a nation that can withstand, adapt to, and recover from personal and public health emergencies. The first week focuses on personal preparedness, and the importance of nonperishable food, safe water, basic supplies, and the personal items you need to protect your health until help arrives.

(7) Public Health Matters Blog - Kentucky Takes a Novel Approach to Fight the Opioid Crisis
The opioid overdose epidemic is a public health emergency. The state of Kentucky has the third highest rate of drug overdose in the country. The FindHelpNowKY.org website bridges a gap between Kentucky residents and timely access to substance use treatment facilities and services. It provides near real-time available openings at local area substance use disorder (SUD) facilities. Tue, 28 Aug 2018 09:00:00 EST
(8) Public Health Matters Blog - Arizona's ERIC Program Works to Improve Access to Emergency Information
Vicki Bond is not surprised at how hot, but at how cold the temperatures can get out on a wildfire. "I've worked on responses to more wildfires in freezing temperatures than in extreme heat," she says. Coincidentally, making sure people aren't left out in the cold in an emergency is why she has so much experience with the weather. Bond works for the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (DEMA) as a licensed American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter and deployment coordinator for the Emergency Response Interpreters Credentialing (ERIC) program. She helps prepare licensed ASL interpreters and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) captioners to deploy for emergencies throughout the state. ERIC interpreters and captioners work alongside communicators to interpret and transcribe information presented at community meetings and media briefings, on websites and social media, and in evacuation shelters for people who are deaf and hard of hearing. "The goal of the ERIC program," said Bond, "is to ensure deaf and hard of hearing community members have access to critical information during emergencies and disasters in the State of Arizona." People in Arizona are at risk from a variety of hazards, including extreme heat, floods, and wildfire. More than 1,500 wildfires occur in Arizona each year. Wed, 15 Aug 2018 09:00:00 EST
(9) Public Health Matters Blog - Preventing Prescription Opioid Overdoses in New York State
Like many states, New York is suffering from the consequences of the opioid overdose epidemic. There has been a dramatic increase in the number of overdoses due to both prescription and illicit drug use in recent years. Overdoses are killing people of all races and ages. The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is coordinating statewide prevention interventions to save lives and prevent opioid overdoses. Wed, 08 Aug 2018 09:00:00 EST
(10) Public Health Matters Blog - 10 Health Literacy Tips for Reporting Data
We live in a complex world. Just as humans have left an impact on the environment, the environment also leaves an impact on us. Being exposed to certain physical and social environmental factors, like chemicals in the water, secondhand smoke, or poverty, can affect our health. Mon, 23 Jul 2018 09:00:00 EST

Vehicle Recalls from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)


The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) is an office within the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). ODI conducts defect investigations and administers safety recalls to support the NHTSA's mission to improve safety on our Nation's highways. NHTSA is authorized to order manufacturers to recall and repair child_seat or items of motor vehicle equipment when ODI investigations indicate that they contain serious safety defects in their design, construction, or performance. ODI also monitors the adequacy of manufacturers' recall campaigns. Before initiating an investigation, ODI carefully reviews the body of consumer complaints and other available data to determine whether a defect trend may exist.
