IAEM-USA Healthcare Caucus Webinar:
"A Tale of Two Jurisdictions"

June 2, 2016

For a number of years, the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) has been funding local jurisdictions to form and maintain healthcare coalitions to plan for, respond to, and recover from disasters. Healthcare coalitions are comprised of healthcare providers across the spectrum – hospitals, public health, long-term care and primary care providers, EMS, and community mental health that come together to develop regional surge plans. The IAEM-USA Healthcare Caucus welcomed representatives from two healthcare coalitions – Sarah Seiler of the Metrolina Healthcare Preparedness Coalition in North Carolina and Dave Freeman of the Central Florida Disaster Medical Coalition to see how these jurisdictions direct their work, fund, and effectively plan for regional surge.
