Welcome

The purpose of this guide is to provide disaster health information to health care providers and was developed in connection with the West Alabama Disaster Health Information Outreach Project.  The target area includes the 11 counties of west Alabama covered by EMPACT West Alabama Inc. (Emergency Medical Programs and Community Training), which are Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Marengo, Marion, Perry, Pickins, Tuscaloosa, and Sumter.  State and federal resources that would be beneficial to those dealing with emergencies are included.  All resources chosen for inclusion are freely accessible on the web.

The development of the Disaster Health Information Website was made possible by a grant from the National Library of Medicine awarded to the Health Sciences Library and the Institute for Rural Health Research, which are both part of the College of Community Health Sciences at The University of Alabama. The website is part of the West Alabama Disaster Health Information Outreach Project, which was funded by the NLM grant.

 

Please note that this site is under construction.
