In just the past few months, HCCs around the U.S. have worked through hurricanes, wildfires, and mass shootings. They all remind us of the importance of up-to-date preparedness and effective communications. You are on the front line to keep people safe, mitigate damage and loss of life, and speed recovery after an incident.

Join hundreds of your HCC peers from across the country to discuss new healthcare emergency management principles and best practices. Learn how up-to-date preparedness strategies, fast communication, situational awareness, and a well-coordinated recovery plan can:

  • Protect patients and staff
  • Mitigate the impact of a disaster
  • Enable you to maintain operations in the face of threat

We hope to see you at the following event programs:
