Emergency Response: Ebola and Legionnaires’

New York City Department of Health

NYC had its share of well-publicized health emergencies in 2015, and NYC Health enlisted DCF’s help in getting the right messages out to the public. Cases of Ebola and Legionnaires’, very serious diseases that require immediate medical attention, were discovered and needed to be stopped before they could become widespread.

It was essential to not only provide critical, useful information to many communities, but to also do so in a rapid manner. DCF has a range of experience in quickly producing responses to similar emergencies (H1N1, bed bugs, measles, MRSA). With previous strategies in mind, we developed an informative video about Ebola and produced reassuring TV spots about Legionnaires’. Each played an important role in helping to contain what could have been even more serious public health emergencies.
