Health And Human Services, D. O. (n.d.). Bioterrorism and Public Health Preparedness. Retrieved from

CDC has been responding to public health emergencies for decades and has been preparing for bioterrorism in particular since 1998. CDC’s bioterrorism plans were put into action in fall 2001, with the first biological attack in the United States. Outbreaks of anthrax proved that the first line of defense is rapid identification—essential for ensuring a prompt response to a biological or chemical attack so that exposure can be limited and those affected can be treated. To accomplish this, regional and state laboratories have strengthened their capacity to detect different biological and chemical agents and to communicate the results to CDC and others. Along the same lines, CDC’s Health Alert Network has upgraded the capacity of state and local health agencies to detect and communicate different health threats—including bioterrorism, emerging infectious diseases, chronic diseases, and environmental hazards. This means that we reap the benefits of these investments every day, not just in the event of a bioterrorist attack.
