The goal of this project was to enhance the capacity of local health departments to translate and implement evidence-based programs in emergency preparedness by using the Getting To Outcomes approach. Our evaluation determined that local health department staff reported improved capacities. A "Getting To Outcomes Guide for Community Emergency Preparedness" guidebook was produced and is available online.
