Thank you to those who have attended and supported this event over the years.
It is the mission of this consortium to bring together healthcare, medical, public health and volunteer emergency management personnel involved in disaster recovery and response efforts representing the governmental, public and private sectors to discuss shared practices in preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery. This forum will provide a hands-on, adult learning environment promoting the sharing of ideas and discussion of best practices.
Subject matter experts present interactive forums, sharing lessons learned during times of response and recovery in emergencies, affecting community and healthcare infrastructure, as well as discuss best practices in planning and mitigation. Focus is placed on coordination and collaboration between the various organizations and stakeholders contributing to disaster preparedness, healthcare response, rescue and evacuation, sheltering in place, and recovery operations.
Our vision is to provide an educational opportunity building upon existing knowledge and skills, thus fostering a well-trained alliance of emergency support function responders / receivers to serve their communities, States, Tribes, and the Nation.
- Provide the most up to date disaster preparedness, response and recovery training for all attendees.
- Recognize practice gaps, identify changes in practice outcomes and provide better standards of care to disaster victims.
- Obtain / renew critical hands-on skills which will improve essential responder skills as well as improve response integration capabilities, effectiveness, communication and coordination of partner agencies and responders at the local, state, Tribal level.
- Provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas and the development of partnerships within every level of mitigation, response, and recovery.
- Focus on a comprehensive all hazards approach.
And all other allied healthcare providers and volunteers.
