    13. Radiation IncidentsImpact on People • Fatality • Injury • Exposure to radiation • Contamination with radioactive material • Anxiety • Displacement Population Monitoring

    15. Community Reception Center (CRC) The place to conduct “population monitoring” Who will staff them?

    16. Radiation Response Volunteer Corps CDC, CRCPD, MRC Partnership March 2011 www.crcpd.org/Homeland_Security/RRVC_FinalReport.pdf

    19. Kansas City, KS - September 2012Kansas National Guard Armory

    20. The Virtual Community Reception Center (vCRC) • Web-based training • Animated exploration area • Interactive flow diagram • Embedded video segments • Supporting resources • Job Action Sheets • Forms • customizable for jurisdiction www.emergency.cdc.gov/radiation/crc/vcrc
