PHIN Communication and Alerting

PCA Overview

A significant goal of PHIN is to develop a nationwide network of integrated communications systems that can disseminate relevant information reliably, quickly, and securely to appropriate public and private entities and to the public. The ability to communicate rapidly and reliably with key players during a public health event or emergency is fundamental to situational awareness and ability to respond. PHIN Communication and Alerting (PCA) describes the capabilities needed by CDC and state and local health departments to issue alerts and emergency communications to their own staffs, to other organizations and people within their jurisdictions that are critical to emergency response, and to other affected public health jurisdictions.
