New Report: Community Assessment of Public Health Emergency Response

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently released a new report illustrating the results of completing the Community Assessment of Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) as a part of the Protocol for Assessing Community Excellence in Environmental Health (PACE-EH) in South Gate, California. This report presents methods and results from the rapid needs assessment conducted in South Gate. By sharing this document CDPH hopes other communities can use it as a resource when conducting a CASPER to assess their environmental health concerns as a part of PACE-EH or for an independent process.

The description of the report, data collection process, and entire downloadable report, can be accessed via the NACCHO Toolbox, at this link. Please contact Danny Kwon, CDPH Epidemiologist and Health Assessor, with any additional questions about this report.
