From the Document: "The requestor asked for resources related to protecting community hospitals and providing care during civil unrest. [...] The ASPR TRACIE [Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange] Team reviewed existing resources and conducted a search online for relevant materials. Although not directly related to this technical assistance (TA) request, we would like to provide the requestor with three ASPR TRACIE Topic Collections for reference: Mass Gatherings/Special Events, Responder Safety and Health, and Workplace Violence. The Hospital Lockdown Resources TA response document also provides useful resources related to hospital lockdown procedures for various types of events. Section I includes links to planning resources and lessons learned. Section II includes links to articles that examine the medical effects and treatment strategies for exposure to riot control tools (e.g., pepper spray, tear gas, and rubber bullets). Section III includes a list of symptoms and treatment strategies for individuals exposed to tear gas or pepper spray."
