The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Has Controls and Strategies To Mitigate Hurricane Preparedness and Response Risk

Our objectives were to identify CDC�s potential risks for preparing for and responding to hurricanes and other natural disasters and to determine whether CDC has designed and implemented controls and strategies to mitigate these potential risks.

Within the 4 risk areas related to CDC�s hurricane preparedness and response activities, we identified 22 sub-risk areas and rated 19 as low risk and 3 as moderate risk. Even though we rated three sub-risk areas as moderate, CDC had developed various controls and strategies that are designed to mitigate the risks we identified for preparing for and responding to hurricanes and other natural disasters.

This report contains no recommendations.
