Abstract:

This pamphlet provides information on the Community Outreach CO component of the Modular Emergency Medical System MEMS. MEMS is an approach to disaster medical response, intended to assist emergency planners and health care providers in planning and coordinating an effective medical response following a large-scale bioterrorism incident in a civilian community. The CO component is complementary to the Neighborhood Emergency Help Center NEHC of the MEMS. The CO component is intended to serve that part of the community not reached through NEHCs.
