Emergency Preparedness Toolkit for Community Health Centers & Community Practice Sites


This toolkit is intended to be used by leadership of community practice sites (including community health centers, group practices and specialty care practices) to (1) assess vulnerability, create an emergency preparedness plan, train staff to the plan and evaluate the staff's readiness through participation in drills and exercises and (2) connect with local emergency management planners to better inderstand how your resources and expertise can be used during an emergency response.

The toolkit provides an outline of steps to be taken and includes forms and tables as templates.  Emphasis is on connecting with local partners in order for the practice site to become part of the local planning process and tailor your plan to match local expectation.
