  • To provide a forum for hospital, healthcare, emergency response, and essential community partners committed to building and sustaining a regional healthcare response system to emergency, preparedness, response, and recovery.
  • To build, coordinate, and improve medical surge capabilities and capacities for healthcare entities responding to bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, natural or man-made disasters, and other public health threats and emergencies.

  • Maintain a common operating picture during a response through timely and efficient sharing of essential elements of information using pre-determined communication pathways and technologies.

  • Ensuring overall readiness through day-to-day situational awareness as well as coordination of community-wide training and exercises.
