Quickly Noted: Favorite Part

December 15, 2009

Easily my favorite part of TFAH’s Ready Or Not season is the headlines editors throw together trying to explain what public health prearedness is and why their state is failing (or doing so well).

The best one I’ve seen this year comes via @BeingPrepared, who forwards this article from NorthJersey.com:

Report: NJ only 60% prepared for health emergency

Like you can be 100% prepared. Like the metrics used actually measure “preparedness.” Does this mean that New Jersey is now liable for 40% of the deaths due to health emergencies? The mind boggles.
