First Responder Anthrax Preparedness

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have released information to help increase the preparedness of first responders in advance of a public health emergency involving anthrax. The intent is that first responders have ready access to doxycycline for their personal use in the event that an emergency involving anthrax occurs.
