When a disaster hits a community or a region, the entire healthcare system will be impacted and will have to respond. All healthcare organizations will need to work together in a coordinated fashion to effectively respond to the disaster and work towards recovery. Coordinated regional planning will create a more prepared and resilient healthcare system.
When resources are limited, and the needs are high, working together will save lives!
As a member, your agency will:
- Build relationships with other healthcare organizations and emergency management
- Work together in the planning process to address regional preparedness gaps
- Gain access to education, training, exercises, grant funding and regional assets
Coalition members will have the opportunity to collaborate with each other, learn from shared experiences and get assistance with requirements relating to emergency preparedness.
Joining the Coalition is FREE!
All healthcare organizations and community partners are invited to join the coalition. Membership is available at no cost to you. Members attend quarterly Coalition meetings, participate in planning, training and exercises, and agree to work with and support other members during disaster response and recovery. You can join the Coalition by contacting us or attending a meeting.
