Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery: After the Storm: Lessons Learned on Worker Health & Safety during Storm Disaster Cleanup (2016).
Resource Type: Publication.
Description: Recent events have highlighted the importance of planning and preparing for the continuity of health care services in the event of emergency or disaster. Following disaster, a thorough emergency response allows health centers to shifts gears to address the longer-term health consequences of disaster. Providing health care services to underserved populations, like agricultural workers, poses a host of challenges to service providers under the best of circumstances, including isolated rural work and home locations, group housing, substandard housing, mobility, limited English proficiency, cultural factors, transportation, documentation status, and poverty. The significance of these factors is undoubtedly magnified under emergency circumstances.
