Terrorism Injuries: Information, Dissemination and Exchange (TIIDE) Grant

The Emergency Medical Services & Trauma System was funded from September 2007 to August 2011 by the CDC to conduct activities related to the development, dissemination and exchange of information about the management of mass victim incidents resulting from terrorism.

The following are some of the educational materials created by the TIIDE partners:

Bombings: Injury Patterns and Care

The Office of Emergency Medical Services & Trauma System, in cooperation with the CDC and the American College of Emergency Physicians, revised the original “Bombings: Injury Patterns and Care” curriculum to provide a targeted training program for security officers to prepare them to assist in managing the scene prior to the arrival of police, fire and EMS personnel.

Call (702) 759-1050 for more information or to request a copy of the training DVD.

Blast Injuries

Blasts or explosions can cause numerous casualties with complex, technically challenging injuries not commonly seen. To address this issue, the CDC has developed fact sheets for health care providers that provide detailed information on the treatment of blast injuries.

More information is available on the CDC's Blast Injuries: What Clinicians Need to Know webpages.

New "Health and Safety" fact sheets provide key messages for the general public and emergency care community to use in immediate response to a blast event.

Blast Injuries: Traumatic Brain Injuries
Listen to the Blast Injuries: What Clinicians Need to Know podcast by Dr. Richard C. Hunt, Director of the CDC's Division of Injury Response. Dr. Hunt provides a brief overview on how to respond and care for people injured by an explosion or blast event.
