Drills & Exercises

Since 2001, the National Center for Disaster Preparedness has been funded to provide technical assistance, training and education programs, exercise support, and planning guidance for public health emergency preparedness and response activities. NCDP has been engaged with health departments, hospitals and health systems, and emergency management agencies in the City and State of New York including 7 counties in New York City metropolitan area–and across the country, including the State of Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

NCDP’s partners represent public health agencies and offices of emergency management that serve populations as large as 19.5 million (New York State Department of Health) to 99,000 (Putnam County, NY Department of Health). We are adept at meeting the needs of large states and cities—and also at developing public health preparedness programs and activities in more rural areas.
