Welcome to ATSDR’s Rapid Response Registry (RRR) Web site. The RRR helps local and state public health and disaster response agencies rapidly establish registries of persons who are exposed or potentially exposed to chemicals or other harmful agents during catastrophic events.
ATSDR’s RRR survey instrument gives local and state entities a tool to register responders and other persons exposed to chemical, biological, or nuclear agents from a disaster. The survey instrument is a two-page form that can be distributed on paper or electronically. It can be implemented quickly to collect information rapidly to identify and locate victims and people displaced or affected by a disaster. It requires five minutes or less to collect basic information, such as:
- Demographics (e.g., name, age, sex, home address, status and place of employment)
- Health information
- Exposure information
- Exposure-related health effects
- Immediate health and safety needs
- Health insurance
For mass casualty events, ATSDR identified four critical fields that would be sufficient to establish an official registry record and require only about 90 seconds to complete for each registrant. These are the registrant’s
- home address, and
- telephone numbers.
