Emergency Preparedness Toolkit for Community Health Centers Community Practice Sites
Columbia University School of Nursing, Center for Health Policy, and New York Consortium for Emergency Preparedness Continuing Education. (2007). Emergency Preparedness Toolkit for Community Health Centers & Community Practice Sites. Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers.
This toolkit is intended to be used by leadership of community practice sites (including community health centers, group practices, and specialty care practices) to assess vulnerability; create an emergency preparedness plan; train staff to the plan; and evaluate the staff’s readiness through participation in exercises. It also provides guidance and tools for connecting with local emergency management planners to better understand how a community practice site's resources and expertise can be used during an emergency response.
