Infectious Disease Emergency Response (IDER) Toolkit


The IDER Toolkit is for local health department staff and others involved in planning and preparing for infectious disease emergencies.  The toolkit integrates key elements of communicable disease control and prevention with emergency management principles, and provides a customizable, ready-to-go infectious disease emergency response plan via a variety of functional forms and templates.  Toolkit users will recognize how the Incident Command System may be adopted to plan for and respond to infectious disease emergencies, describe the necessary roles and responsibilities during an infectious disease emergency response, and be able to develop a local infectious disease emergency response plan. Subject matter experts at the local, state, and national levels have reviewed this product; evaluation of this product by local health department users is pending.
