In addition, the Division of Environmental Hazards and Health Effects, Health Studies Branch (DEHHE/HSB) at the CDC has developed a Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) toolkit, which is used by public health practitioners and emergency management officials to determine the health status and basic needs of the affected community in a quick and low-cost manner.
