Minnesota Plans for Emergency, Prepares for Pandemic Response

From JEMS:

Forty people from Minnesota’s Northeast Healthcare Preparedness Coalition (NHPC) recently attended the Pandemic Planning and Preparedness (P3) course at FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP). Students represented 20 partnering agencies including: healthcare facilities, local and tribal public health; public safety; emergency management; the Minnesota Air National Guard; and regional healthcare, public health, and emergency management coordinators.

According to Marilyn Cluka, Public Health Preparedness Consultant with the Minnesota Department of Health, “Although this course focused on a pandemic response, the training can be applied to any disaster. We gained a better understanding of the Incident Command System and how we work together with different organizations within an Emergency Operations Center.”
