DOD Launches Tomodachi Registry Website

Late last week DoD was provided the green light from the State Department for the release of the Environmental Health Surveillance Registries (EHSR) public website. The EHSR supports the Operation Tomodachi Registry, which will ultimately reside in the DoD and Army-managed Defense Occupational & Environmental Health Readiness System (DOEHRS).

The EHSR website includes information on the event, DoD's response to the 11 March 2011 "Great East Japan Earthquake" and associated Tsunami and Nuclear Reactor crisis. The website provides answer to frequently asked questions and provides a map with location-based radiation dose estimate reports.

By the end of the calendar year individuals in the registry may request a dose assessment that is individually tailored for them. Nearly 70,000 people comprise the DoD-affiliated population who were on or near mainland Japan following the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.

This milestone marks a significant effort in support of Operation Tomodachi and a collaborative effort between DoD, State Department and many other agencies.

The links provided below and the EHSR highlight the efforts of all of the team players who have been part of this mission since March 2011. The actual Operation Tomodachi Registry will reside within DOEHRS and will be available by the end of the 2012 calendar year.

The OSD PAO press release announcing the launch of the DoD's Operation Tomodachi Registry website has been announced. The full press release can be found at:

The first article from American Forces Press Service related to the Operation Tomodachi Registry was also posted this week at
