The HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs (ASPA), the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have developed a text message library for emergency response and preparedness. The messages, for voluntary use by state and local authorities, provide the public with reliable, credible and timely health information. Currently, the library has information on hurricane and floods. Future plans include adding CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, explosion) messages.
