This informational video introduces the Emergency Law Inventory (ELI), a tool developed by the University of Pittsburgh, Graduate School of Public Health and its partners at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Allegheny County Health Department (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), and Mahoning, Columbiana, and Trumbull Counties Medical Reserve Corps (Ohio). ELI helps individuals navigate through laws that impact volunteer participation in preparing for or responding to disasters. The laws are searchable by profession and jurisdiction so users can identify the provisions that impact them specifically. This video demonstrates the ELI interface and includes a basic overview of how to use this tool in retrieving information.
Other tools and apps can be found at Mid Atlantic Regional Public Health Training Center
