The Zebra Packet was prepared by Santa Clara County's Public Health Department (SCCPHD) in San Jose, California in the year 2000. It was developed as a hard-copy reference for clinicians on biological exposures. SCCPHD has updated the Zebra Packet to make it available online and to provide quick and comprehensive access to clinical information when treating biological, chemical, and radiation exposure.
The Zebra Packet website is intended to be a one-stop hub for finding biological, chemical, and radiological information, as well to provide information to clinicians on how to report potential exposures to SCCPHD. The source information found within the Zebra Packet comes from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) websites.
Zebra Packet.com is not a proprietary website but rather a tool developed by SCCPHD to aid clinicians throughout Santa Clara County.
The Zebra Packet summarizes current Medical Management Guidelines (MMGs) published by the CDC and ATSDR. Links are provided back to the CDC/ATSDR websites for further information.
