Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response announces TRACIE webinar

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), as part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recently announced that it will hold a webinar on Feb. 10 on ASPR’s Technical Resources, Assistance Center and Information Exchange (TRACIE).

TRACIE is a healthcare emergency preparedness information gateway that is available to all stakeholders, including at the federal, state, local, tribal, territory, non-profit and for-profit levels. It allows key first responders have access to information and resources to improve preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation efforts.

Shayne Brannman, ASPR’s TRACIE program director, Meghan Treber, ICF TRACIE’s program director, and Audrey Mazure, ICF TRACIE’s deputy program director, will serve as speakers at the event.

ASPR TRACIE focuses on the preparedness of the healthcare system. It also has broader implications for emergency management, homeland security and first responders, as well as healthcare professionals. Typically it focuses on the hazardous nature of any preparedness work, particularly related to how different fields interact and are interconnected during any type of emergency/disaster.

Emergency managers make up an essential part of the TRACIE stakeholder community, and the webinar will also aim to provide information on how ASPR TRACIE can help provide resources and connections to offices of emergency management.
