Disaster Preparedness

Disaster Preparedness

The Maine Chapter has strong ties to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Christopher Pezzullo, DO, FAAP, the Disaster Preparedness Chapter Champion, provides a connection to the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Office and oversees activities in Maine related to the Hospital Preparedness Program grant and the CDC Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program. The chapter continues to encourage and expand participation in the CDC Health Alert Network. We also have a new Champion in Maine, working with Dr. Pezzullo, Kate Herlihy, MD.


The National AAP has a 5 year strategic plan around disaster preparedness which you can read or download.
