Emergency Preparedness

Colorado Community Health Network (CCHN) received a grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to support Community Health Centers (CHCs) with: emergency preparedness technical assistance, training, exercises, communication, and disaster-coordination.

As a result of this funding, all CHCs have Emergency Management Plans, are connecting with the local public health agencies, work regularly with their Healthcare Coalitions or local planning groups, have a basic understanding of Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS), and have been able to purchase vital equipment to support a disaster response.

CCHN EP resources available:

  • Emergency Preparedness Technical Assistance
  • Hazard Vulnerability Assessment
  • Continuous of Operations Plan (COOP) Template
