Preparing and Responding to Natural Disasters: Health Care for the Homeless Perspectives

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | 11 a.m-12 p.m. CDT

Join us for the first session in our CME-accredited 2018 Spring Virtual Training webinar series, “Responding to Crises.”

With recent natural disasters striking major metropolitan areas, the need for preparedness and response discussions has drastically increased. Preparing our health centers, our staff, and our consumers is vital for safety and recovery. Join us as we explore disaster preparedness and response for health centers treating people experiencing homelessness from multiple angles. We will share disaster preparedness plans from an administrative and operations perspective, challenges and success in planning and response, lessons learned following Hurricane Harvey, hear stories of involuntary evacuation for Hurricane Irma, and learn useful strategies to proactively engage and prepare consumers for natural disasters.
