A New Rural Preparedness and Response Toolkit is Available

A new rural preparedness and response toolkit is now available through the Rural Health Information Hub (RHIHub). Emergency planning, response, and recovery has never been more important for rural communities, healthcare providers, and other stakeholders and organizations with an interest in rural health. This toolkit describes unique considerations and issues rural populations face when responding to disasters and public health emergencies but also the strengths and assets they can leverage to support their emergency preparedness efforts. This new toolkit was developed in collaboration with the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis. It compiles evidence-based and promising models and resources to support organizations implementing emergency planning, response, and recovery efforts in rural communities across the United States.

This toolkit supplements and expands on previous work in this area, including our Rural Emergency Preparedness and Response topic guide. There are more resources on general community health strategies available in the Rural Community Health Toolkit. All of the resources on the website are available without charge.
