Quickly Noted: Ready or Not 2007 Released

December 18, 2007

bioterror07 The Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) has just released their yearly Ready Or Not: Protecting the Public’s Health from Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism report.  I’m going to take the next couple of days to digest the entire report, but wanted to give you all a head’s up so you can see how your state is doing.  Expect a few posts forthcoming.

For the record, I think that TFAH can be a bit alarmist in these reports, but I understand their function – to keep the country aware of risks.  While I think the risks are less than they say, they are the ones keeping the issue on the radar, so I can’t begrudge them too much.

Just so you know, Pennsylvania was one of only seven states that scored a perfect 10 out of 10.  Bottom of the barrel?  Six states scored only six out of ten.

You can download the full report here (large PDF), or visit the release page here.
