This document is an appendix to the Baseline Capabilities for State and Major Urban Area Fusion Centers, and it identifies recommended actions for state and major urban area fusion centers to integrate the public health and health care community into the fusion process.
This document identifies the recommended actions for fusion centers that will inform local, state, and national prevention, protection, response, and recovery activities which support and maintain the health and security of the homeland. The goal of the document is to provide guidance on how fusion centers can effectively integrate the information, resources, personnel, and expertise of the public health and health care (PH/HC) community into their existing analysis and information/intelligence sharing processes, to assist those centers in achieving their mission. The capabilities identified in this document are intended to complement those described in Baseline Capabilities for State and Major Urban Area Fusion Centers (Baseline Capabilities document). They are organized and numbered to correlate directly with the capabilities listed in the Baseline Capabilities document, although for the sake of clarity, only those documents that are directly relevant to the integration of the PH/HC community are included in this document.
