Emergency Preparedness

Each year our facilities are faced with emergency challenges including fire, generator failure, power outages and more. This section will help you better prepare for, or recover from, a disaster. You will find an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) Template; guidance on requesting or responding to a HAN drill; information on working with HC Standard; links to helpful tools and training opportunities; and there is City, County, and State contact information for building strong relationships with emergency responders in your community. All of these resources are to help aid in planning, training, and assisting for a real emergency.
