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 and Communications Plans, are connecting with Healthcare Coalitions, or local planning groups, have a basic understanding of Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS), and are compliant with the CMS EP Rule.
