Types of Technical Assistance
We have responded to numerous and diverse TA requests from a variety of sources (e.g., Hospital Preparedness Program grantees, healthcare coalition members, and hospital and other healthcare professionals). Requests range from providing individuals with topic-specific resources (e.g., hazard vulnerability assessments) to connecting them with a subject matter expert.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you need assistance with an active disaster or emergency, please contact your local jurisdictional Emergency Operations Center or the HHS Secretary's Operations Center. ASPR TRACIE is staffed during normal business hours and is for routine requests for assistance only.
