TRPHD works to advance preparedness activities, by working with communities and hospitals in order to prepare and recover from a potential disaster.
Emergency Response activities include assisting healthcare, long-term care, and communities with preparedness plans and policies on preparedness. This includes collaborating with area partners to design and execute exercises which are intended to test preparedness. Preparedness activities can inform the response time of the community to provide lifesaving help and resources to individuals who are in need. Through collaboration with community partners, clinics, and hospitals, TRPHD has coordinated assistance in the event of a real life disaster.
