Quickly Noted: Ready or Not 2007 Released
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.
