Title: Disaster and Emergency Planning Outreach Workshop at Selected Sites in Metropolitan Atlanta
Objective: To demonstrate selected National Library of Medicine databases such as Haz-Map, Household Products, ToxTown, TOXMAP, and MedlinePlus, to show participants where to go for disaster or emergency information, how to create a disaster or emergency plan, and how to share it with relatives not living with them.
Methods: The school of medicine library conducted disaster workshops at selected churches and on the campus of the school of medicine. Workshops covered overview, training, formulation of a disaster plan, and information on disaster preparedness.
Results: Participants demonstrated how they could obtain authoritative information on disaster preparedness, how to prepare for a disaster, and how to devise a disaster plan.
Conclusions: At the end of a workshop, participants felt comfortable with having a disaster or emergency plan and identified a strategic location to keep it. Participants were willing to take the disaster information and plan to share it with family and friends.
