Coalition Disciplines

The Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response prescribes that all healthcare coalitions should have engagement from four essential disciplines: hospitals, public health, emergency management, and emergency medical services.  We also have strong involvement from trauma thanks to the state and regional trauma advisory councils.  As our coalitions continue to grow and develop, we also seek to engage additional partners from clinics, long-term care, surgery centers, mental and behavioral health providers, hospice providers, home health providers, dialysis centers, fire and rescue, law enforcement, community and faith based organizations, volunteer organizations, human services, medical examiners and coroners, schools and universities, transportation companies, retailers and others.
