Emergency and Pandemic Preparedness Overview

When An Emergency or Pandemic Strikes Are You Prepared?

Natural disasters, pandemics, and emergencies can occur with little to no warning, and with no certainty of the length and extent of the event. They don’t wait for response plans, budget allocations, and communication strategies to be developed before their impacts are felt. Waiting for another pandemic or emergency to occur before preparing can be too late.

This resource library contains a wide variety of tools, resources, and checklists to aid any healthcare facility with pandemic preparedness. Preparedness is not a time-limited activity, but rather an ongoing process that must be supported by the facility’s executive leadership. These resources are meant to serve as a comprehensive reference for any preparedness needs. With proper planning, healthcare facilities and providers can respond favorably to future threats from pathogens.
