PACER App Suite for Disasters and Flu Outbreaks Fact Sheet


When disasters and flu outbreaks strike communities, hospitals; emergency responders; and other city, state, and federal response agencies need to know what resources are available to accommodate a potentially large influx of injured or ill patients. Until now, emergency planners have lacked reliable tools to help them manage their resources for specific disasters or disease outbreaks.

In response, the National Center for the Study of Preparedness and Catastrophic Event Response (PACER), a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Center of Excellence, has developed the PACER Disaster App Suite, a suite of free Web-based tools to help emergency planners, medical centers, and other response agencies reliably forecast how disasters and flu outbreaks might affect their organizations.
