It allows colleagues to connect at the largest gathering of hospital emergency preparedness coordinators in California. We’ll explore new approaches and solutions that evolve from real-life crises to build critical skills and strengthen preparedness and response.

We are expecting hospital administrators, emergency preparedness coordinators, disaster planners, risk managers, physicians, nurse executives, emergency department managers, safety and security personnel, and other hospital professionals from throughout the state.
