Illinois Keeps Pace With National Average In Disaster Readiness Study


A new study of the state’s readiness for a major disaster finds Illinois is in line with most of the nation in its ability to respond to big emergencies. 

 

The National Health Security Preparedness Index gives the state high marks for its ability to test for and detect potential causes in the event of a widespread event involving food contamination, and also for its plans to distribute and dispense medical supplies on a large scale. 

 

But the state ranks below average for its plans to identify and mobilize medical personnel who may be needed in a crisis, and to provide assistance to special needs populations in a public health emergency.  State health officials say they’re working on ways to shore up those deficiencies.
