Streamlining the Health Alert Network
Testing Process

Carver County Public Health

A timely response to the Health Alert Network (HAN) notification system is a federal grant requirement for emergency preparedness. This project is focusing on a more rigorous approach to the preparation of the test and the dissemination of the HAN messages from their local office. The anticipated outcome is to decrease the response time and the staff time involved, both achieving the goal of improving the agency’s ability to respond to a disaster.
