The Northeast Tennessee Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is a group of many different healthcare agencies in the Northeast TN region that collaborate to prepare for disasters. We know that when a disaster strikes, we all need to work together to make sure that our community has an effective disaster response.
Our coalition develops emergency plans, trains and exercises together, shares information and resources, and builds connections between all of our partner agencies. The coalition brings these organizations together to build capabilities that would be difficult to achieve without support. Our partner agencies represent many different kinds of healthcare including hospitals, public health, EMS, long term care, and many others.
