Formed in early 2002, the ICTW is a national network of local, state, and federal health agencies which allows for sharing of knowledge, materials, and resources to define the role of state and local health agencies in a chemical terrorism event. For the past several years, they have published a monthly newletter that is an absolutely invaluable information resource concerning this area of response. To view the July newletter, click here.
At the bottom of the newsletter, please note the link to the free online lecture, "Mapping and Tracking Vulnerable Populations Using Geospatial Technologies", sponsored by the Pacific Emergency Management, Preparedness, and Response Information Network and Training Services (Pacific-EMPRINTS). Hawaii based Pacific-EMPRINTS hosts many excellent online training modules - several of which discuss the use of geospatial technologies in the emergency services sector.
ICTW is planning to discontinue the newsletter in early fall and replace it with a comprehensive website. When that development takes place, the new EPC web site (which is currently under construction) will host a link to that site.
