Santa Clara Valley Emergency Preparedness Healthcare Coalition Meeting
We invite you to join us for our bi-annual Emergency Preparedness Healthcare Coalition Meeting! Our theme is Facing the Future Together:

Building Pediatric Disaster Healthcare Coalition Capability: The Secret Sauce
Patricia Frost is the Director Emergency Medical Services for Contra Costa Health Services. She is the Co-Chair for the California Neonatal Pediatric and Perinatal Disaster Coalition and Vice Chair for the National Pediatric Disaster Coalition.
EPHC Member Highlight: TBD
Statewide Medical Health Tabletop Exercise: EPHC members will have an opportunity to participate in the 2016 Statewide Medical & Health Exercise Table-top Exercise (TTX). This year's scenario will focus on response capabilities in a Mass Casualty Incident, while concentrating on pediatric issues. The TTX is a discussion-based exercise allowing multiple agencies and/or departments to familiarize themselves and others with their current plans, policies, agreements, and procedures. EPHC members are encouraged to discuss issues in depth, collaboratively examining areas of concern and solving problems.
Purpose: During this coalition meeting, we will review Healthcare Facility Roles and Responsibilities in the Event of a Disaster; Santa Clara County Emergency Communications; receive workgroup updates; and networking opportunities.
