A questionnaire was developed containing 38 questions relative to the OSHA-required elements of a respiratory-protection program and the PHRST training materials (Figure 1).
At the time the questionnaire was distributed, PHRST respiratory-protection training was completed in 83 percent (71/86) of health departments or CHDs in North Carolina.
Additional information supported the conclusion that the PHRST industrial-hygienist respiratory program was beneficial to the LHDs.
Responses to questions on the value of training components and topics for future PHRST trainings are summarized in Table 2.
The North Carolina Division of Public Health (NCDPH) activated the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (PHPR) and seven Public Health Regional Surveillance Teams (PHRSTs) to conduct a rapid community health and needs assessment for the affected population.
Two days after Hurricane Isabel struck, PHPR obtained information about storm damage from field assessments conducted by PHRSTs, reports from local health directors, damage reports from local emergency management offices, and aerial surveillance by the North Carolina Division of Emergency Management.
