In Case of Emergency Are You Ready? Important Things to Know about Disease Control, Natural Disasters, Hazardous Materials, Injury Prevention, Food & Water Safety, Coping with Disasters, Pandemic Influenza
Alabama. Department of Public Health
"Many types of disasters can create public health problems--weather, chemical, radiological and biological. Injury or illness can occur as a direct result of the event, or as a result of people trying to cope with the event. The most important fact to remember about any disaster is this: by being prepared, you can help prevent or reduce harm to your family, yourself and others. This booklet was written to give you basic disaster preparedness education. I urge you to take the time to read the information and make your own emergency plans with family, friends, caregivers and co-workers. You should update these plans at least once a year, or when there is an important change in contacts or other information."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
