ACE investigations are a component of the National Toxic Substance Incidents Program (NTSIP). NTSIP was introduced in 2010 as a comprehensive agency approach to toxic substance incident surveillance, prevention, and response. This three-part program includes a proposal for state-based surveillance for toxic substance releases, a national database of toxic substance incidents combining data from many sources, and the ACE investigations. The ACE Investigations focus on performing rapid epidemiological assessments to assist state, regional, local, or tribal health departments (the requesting agencies) to respond to or prepare for acute chemical releases. The main objectives for performing these rapid assessments are to: 1. Characterize exposure and acute health effects of respondents exposed to toxic substances from discrete, chemical releases and determine their health statuses; 2. identify needs (i.e. medical and basic) of those exposed during the releases to aid in planning interventions in the community; E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1
