C3 - Integrating Clinics into Emergency Management Systems: Small Challenges, Big Opportunities

Wednesday, July 11
10:15 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: Balcony I

Integrating clinics into larger Emergency Management (EM) systems can be perplexing due to their unique structures, challenges, and perspectives. Learn how a local consortium has structured its emergency management program to streamline clinic engagement in EM activities and doubled participation across Los Angeles County. Participants will learn emerging practices and theories that can be applied to improve community preparedness and community resilience at the local, state, tribal, and national levels and learn tips and tricks for communicating with differently structured agencies to maintain continued participation and responsiveness.

Dana James has supported CCALAC's EM Program since 2012. As the CCALAC community has grown, a structured program was necessary to maintain and continue to garner engagement. With new and evolving strategies in place, program enrollment has doubled and engagement continues to rise. In partnership and with the support of the LA County EMS team, CCALAC has been able to create a robust, scale-able annual program to support and include community health centers in emergency response.
