Healthcare Preparedness Toolbox

CDC’s Healthcare Preparedness Activity (HPA) has conducted several meetings and workshops across the U.S. to help communities prepare for medical surge following a public health emergency. These community engagements helped identify pressing healthcare preparedness planning needs at the local level and subsequently informed the collaborative development of several planning resources.

The Healthcare Preparedness Toolbox compiles these resources and provides community planners with an easy-to-use guide to enhance or develop community plans for medical surge.
