Solar Eclipses: Planning Resources for Local Emergency Healthcare Providers

Posted by on July 24th, 2017 Posted in: Emergency Preparedness, Public Health

To address planning and response concerns and help local emergency healthcare providers plan for the many gatherings to watch the solar eclipse on August 21st, the HHS ASPR TRACIE team compiled Solar Eclipses: Planning Resources with links to “fact sheets, checklists, locally-developed guidance documents, and news articles on eye safety, injury treatment, and planned mass gatherings in rural and urban areas. Resources in sections I through V are specific to the eclipse event; the rest of the sections include resources related to planned mass gatherings.” The document includes resources on eye safety, eye injuries, event planning, and additional resources developed by federal, state, and local entities.
