Arizona Nursing Jobs Benefit from Health Emergency Grant

Those with Arizona nursing jobs will be better prepared for a public health emergency thanks to a new round of federal funding.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently awarded an $11,894,000 Prevention Health Emergency preparedness grant to the State of Arizona. The funding will help to ensure the safety of state residents in case of a public health emergency.

All 50 states, eight territories, and four cities are sharing the CDC Public Health Emergency grant. Funds are aimed at advancing public health preparedness for laboratory testing; surveillance and
epidemiological investigation; community preparedness; distribution of protective medicine in an emergency; emergency operations coordination; and emergency public information and warning.

"Although Arizona is already well prepared in the event of a public health emergency, this funding will
add an additional layer of protection to ensure a rapid response," Gov. Jan Brewer said in a statement. "Arizona received high marks on the last CDC report card on public health preparedness. I have no doubt that, with continued cooperation between the state and local and tribal officials, Arizona will remain a leader in emergency preparedness."

About 83 percent of the funding, which is being handled by the Arizona Department of Health Services, will be given to local governments and tribes for resources and training supplies. This will benefit those with registered nursing jobs Arizona (Click here) and other healthcare professionals.

A good chunk of the money will be used to enhance an existing statewide communication system that allows ADHS to coordinate with local hospitals and county health departments during a public emergency.

"These funds will allow Arizona’s public health system to remain poised and on its toes," ADHS Director Will Humble said. "We have, and will maintain, the critical infrastructure needed for a coordinated and effective response to any public health emergency."
