The Emergency Preparedness Resource Inventory (EPRI) is a tool allowing local or regional planners to assemble an inventory of critical resources that would be useful in responding to a bioterrorist attack. The purpose of this guide is to assist counties, States, or regions in installing, setting up, and operating EPRI. In addition to this guide, EPRI also includes a User's Manual.
