Roadmap to Ready
Roadmap to Ready is a training and mentoring program to help new emergency preparedness coordinators navigate the complex landscape of public health preparedness. The program provides new preparedness coordinators with the knowledge, skills, connections, and resources they need to successfully prepare their local jurisdictions for new and emerging threats. NACCHO designed the program for preparedness coordinators at local health departments who have been in their roles for less than two years.
As part of the program, NACCHO will host an interactive workshop
at the 2016 Preparedness Summit designed to provide a high-level overview of
the most important policies, topics, and resources that impact public health
preparedness. The workshop will contain a variety of focused collaborative sessions
on priority areas that make up the foundation of public health preparedness
work. New preparedness coordinators will be connected to a peer mentoring team
and will leave the session with a personalized learning and action plan and an
assortment of resources to continue learning after the workshop has concluded. To learn more about the workshop, visit the Workshop page.
In the months following the workshop, peer mentoring teams will also engage in learning and sharing sessions and mentors will be available to provide guidance and technical assistance to new preparedness coordinators on a limited basis. In addition, participants will be given access to a variety of materials developed specifically for someone new to their role as a local health department preparedness coordinator (see the Resources page for more information).
Applications for the 2016 program are now closed. Local health department preparedness staff interested in applying in the future should visit our Participant Applicant page.
