Cities Readiness Initiative

Florida Department of Health in Broward County

The Florida Department of Health in Broward County participates in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI). This is a federally funded program designed to enhance preparedness in the nation’s largest cities and metropolitan statistical areas where more than 50% of the U.S. population resides. Through CRI, the Florida Department of Health in Broward County has developed plans to respond to a large-scale bioterrorist event by dispensing antibiotics to the entire population of the County within 48 hours.
