Santa Clara Valley Emergency Preparedness Healthcare Coalition

Local disasters are likely to create a surge of patients and casualties that may overwhelm our healthcare system. Healthcare facilities, schools, local municipalities, law and fire services have come together to form the Santa Clara Valley Emergency Preparedness Healthcare Coalition (SCVEPHC) to plan for, test, and implement a coordinated response to an emergency or disaster. We use the incident command system principles to organize planning and response efforts.

SCVEPHC facilitates working relationships among healthcare communities throughout the County.  This mission includes promoting emergency planning across all sections of the healthcare community. The partnership works to identify weaknesses and gaps in the healthcare community and make recommendations to emergency management partners on how to successfully address these issues.
