Wildfires. Mudslides. Floods. Mass shootings. These once rare or infrequent events have become regular occurrences, and no two disasters are ever the same. Now more than ever, hospitals must reevaluate our procedures and redefine preparation.
From communication to compliance, it is time to rethink our strategies and prepare for the new normal.
On Sept. 10-11 in Pasadena, CHA will host the largest statewide gathering of hospital emergency preparedness coordinators in California. Attendees will learn how past experiences can inform preparation for and response to future events. This year’s event will also be livestreamed for attendees who are unable to participate in person.
