The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response this week shared resources for protecting community hospitals and providing care during civil unrest.

Collected by ASPR’s Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange, the resources cover planning for civil unrest and lessons learned; symptoms and treatment strategies for exposure to riot control tools (e.g., pepper spray, tear gas and rubber bullets); and hospital lockdown procedures for various types of events.
