Disaster Information: More From DIMRC

Posted in: All Members


From the DISASTR-OUTREACH-LIB  email discussion list:

As hurricane season continues, Hurricane Harvey recovery is overlapping with Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Katia. Meanwhile, wildfires are raging in the northwest US, and an earthquake struck Mexico this morning.

Now is a good time to focus on the Preparedness Month theme: Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can.

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) can help. The NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) has resources to help you prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. Our information guides on disaster topics and the Disaster Lit® database provide access to curated, reliable information from vetted federal, state, and local governments and organizations.
