Summer 2011


Dear Emergency Management Summit Attendee:

The Office of Policy and Planning (OPP) for the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services would like to invite you to participate in an effort to collect data on current practices and perspectives regarding mass human decontamination from chemical exposures.

The Office of Policy and Planning is currently working with a White House-directed interagency working group examining operational capabilities for human decontamination for chemical exposures in mass-casualty incidents. Presently, we are examining practitioner goals and current planning, protocols, and practices to inform our work on developing national guidance. This working group is co-led by Susan Cibulsky, PhD, from OPP and Mark Kirk, MD, from the Department of Homeland Security -- Office of Health Affairs.

We will be conducting a series of one-on-one scenario-based interviews with responders and health-care providers. The interviews are scheduled to take approximately one hour, and can be scheduled around conference activities, at your convenience, beginning Monday afternoon, September 12. We are hoping you can help us identify key points that will inform our work to develop national guidance for mass human decontamination.

We would be happy to speak with you to discuss our project goals in greater detail, and to find the optimal time to schedule an interview during the National Emergency Management Summit.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Adam D. Leary
