Radiation Equipment and Response Training
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
in collaboration with SAIC and EAI Corporation have created a Radiation Equipment and Response Training Program for health care providers and non-clinical hospital staff who may be involved
in a radiation response incident.
This program was designed in conjunction with Hospital Radiation Detection Equipment Project during 2006-2007.
Fifty-nine NYC hospitals received radiation detection equipment to support emergency departments in detecting radiological contaminants before and during a radiation incident. Equipment included in the project includes personal electronic dosimeters, survey meters, and radiation area monitors.
