Population Monitoring

Key points

Following a mass casualty radiation emergency, public health professionals play a crucial role in assessing and monitoring people potentially exposed to radiation or contaminated with radioactive material. This process, called population monitoring, will be conducted in community reception centers (CRCs). In addition, sheltering displaced populations after a radiation emergency requires unique planning considerations.
